Barry Durosier

Barry Durosier graduated Dr. Phillips High School with a reputation of being one of the hardest working, clutch-shooting guards in Men's Basketball history.  In a program tradition rich with outstanding guards, Barry Durosier hails as one of the best.  During his tenure his teams amassed 92 victories, an average of 23 per season, and he was named the team's Most Valuable Player as a senior, averaging 20 points and seven rebounds per game.  In a career full of highlights, two senior year games stand out as defining moments: his then school-record 42-point performance vs. Edgewater and his last second three-pointer to bury Amare Stoudemire's Cypress Creek team in front of a packed house.  Barry Durosier

Durosier earned All-Orange County honors and signed with Niagara University in 2002.  He saw action in the 2004 NCAA Tournament with Niagara and transferred to the University of West Florida for his senior campaign in 2006-2007.  It didn't take long for him to make his mark, earning All-Gulf South Conference Second Team honors after placing in the top ten in several offensive categories.  Duroser set the West Florida single season record with 595 points, 420 field goal attempts, 201 field goals made and averaged 22 points per game, second all-time in school history.

Despite playing only one season at West Florida, Barry Durosier finished in the school's all-time top ten in three-point field goal attempts (168), three point field goals (65), free throw attempts (155), free throws made (128) and free throw percentage (.826).  Much like he was at Dr. Phillips, he was a scoring machine, with at least 20 points in 17 games and finishing over 30 points three times.

After graduation, Barry Durosier signed on to play professionally in Germany (where he averaged an astounding 26 points per game with TSG Schwaebisch), becoming the fourth of DP's six graduates to hold the distinction of playing professional basketball (Troy Rolle, Damien Wilkins, Mark Borders, Jason Rich, Chris Warren)A model in both character and class, Barry Durosier was a quiet leader on and off the court and in 2011, he was elected to the Dr. Phillips High School Athletic Hall of Fame.
