 “I am extremely excited to be back coaching at my alma mater, a place that has helped mold me into the man I am today,” stated Dominique Sanders. “I am a firm believer that success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out and that is something that we will strive to accomplish together. I want to give a special thanks to Mrs. Powers, Mrs. Hunt, and Mr. Fantone for believing in me. I am a coach because of the kids and passion I have for the sport itself. To the current and future Twinsburg Tigers, I can't wait to be your leader, to help develop you into the best student athlete that you can be!”

 In 2023, Sanders was the Coach of the Year Runner-Up with the Greater Akron Basketball Coaches Association (GABCA) as well as the Vice President of GABCA.  Sanders is currently the President of the GABCA.

 "This is an exciting time for our basketball program and for our entire school community with the addition of Coach Dominique Sanders as our new Boys’ Varsity Head Basketball Coach," stated Twinsburg Superintendent Kathi Powers.  "I see the enthusiasm and commitment Coach Sanders brings to his Physical Education classrooms and I know he will do likewise for our basketball program.  Coach Sanders brings coaching experience and his own experiences as a student athlete in our school district which will surely elevate our student-athletes to a higher level of performance and continue a rich tradition of athletic excellence at Twinsburg High School”.
