Tom Brown is an Army retiree with 25 years of service who has been greatly involved in youth basketball since 1997 as a Coach, Director, Club President and Business Owner. He has successfully coached various boys’ and girls’ club teams in New Jersey, Houston and San Antonio as a part of AAU, YBOA & NTBA. His teams routinely finished in the top 10 of National Championship events.
For five years while in Houston, Tom served as a committee chairman of the AAU Gulf Association and began coordinating and managing large-scale tournaments and clinics for youths.
In 2002, upon moving to his adopted home of San Antonio, Tom helped establish the Alamo City’s largest basketball club for girls – San Antonio STARZ – and continued to organize and host year-round youth basketball events. The breakup of SA STARZ resulted in his founding Alamo City All-Stars (ACA), the city’s premier host of youth basketball events. Tom and his wife, Grace, have operated ACA since 2007, running monthly tournaments and weekday leagues year-round for hundreds of teams.
ACA adopted National Travel Basketball Association (NTBA) as its national-brand partner in 2015. That same year Tom and Grace became the owners of Alamo City All-Stars Sportsplex, a newly constructed venue with 4 NCAA basketball courts and 8 volleyball courts.
Tom is a decorated Desert Storm veteran; he and Grace, also an Army veteran, have been married since 1983 and are the proud parents of three adult children.
