Bio: Stanley Pringle Jr., is the son of Stanley Sr. and Elvira Andres Pringle. He was born in San Diego, California on March 5, 1987, but grew up mostly in Virginia Beach, Virginia. His mother was born and raised in Sta. Filomena, Abulug, Cagayan of the Philippines. His father, a retired U.S. Navy veteran, was born in Toledo, Ohio. Stanley has a younger brother, Jason, who was also born in San Diego and an older sister, Barbara Jane, who was born in Manila, Philippines. Mainly trained by his uncle, Ruell Pringle, and his father, Stanley developed a love for the game at an early age. He began playing basketball at 6 years old in the Yokosuka, Japan youth Navy league. Because of his natural speed and athleticism, Stanley’s basketball skills surpassed those of his peers, and he was always bumped up to play in older age divisions, competing against other children twice his age. When he was 10 years old, his family moved back to the United States. There, he quickly learned that the competition was much harder, so he continued playing basketball in recreational leagues for his age group and shortly after, at the age of 11, he was picked up by the city’s Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team-- the Virginia Beach Heat. The Heat was mainly coached by Steve Strausbaugh and Norman Hassell and Stanley stayed with the team for 5 years, while simultaneously playing basketball for his junior high school team. This continued until Stanley began high school. At Landstown High School, Stanley’s coaches, Dwight Robinson and Leon Kelly, were key factors in helping him to further develop his game. Stanley became a quick-scoring, four-year starting point guard and a two-year captain for the Landstown Eagles, and he scored 1,100 career points! And as a senior, he earned First-Team All-State from the coaches and Second Team from the Associated Press. Additionally, Stan earned All-Region honors, First-Team All-Tidewater and was named the Virginia Beach Player of the Year following his senior season. Throughout his high school career, Stanley averaged 18.3 ppg and 6.1 apg, while leading Landstown to a 22-3 record and the Virginia Class AAA state tournament final in his senior campaign. Stanley continued to succeed as a standout player at Pasco Hernando Community College in New Port Richey, Florida. There, he served as a two-time team captain and was the first player to earn FCCJA Player-of-the-Week honors twice. He was also named the 2007 Suncoast Conference Player-of-the-Year and an honorable-mention National Junior College Athletic Association All-American as a sophomore.
He earned First-Team Florida Community College Athletic Association All-State selection and was named first-t eam all-conference for the second season. Additionally, he led PHCC and ranked fourth in NJCAA Region VIII, averaging 18.9 points per game and ranked sixth with 5.5 assists per game while adding 5.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. At Penn State University, Stanley proved to be one of the quickest and fastest players end to end in the Big Ten. Stanley's speed and quick hands were evident in his very first game as a Nittany Lion as he tied a Bryce Jordan Center record with seven steals in his debut. He also won a pre-season Nittany Lion Slam-Dunk contest with his team-high 37-inch vertical, and led the Big Ten in three-point shooting. Stan largely contributed to the team’s 27-11 record for the 2008-2009 season; a record containing more wins than any previous season. He also helped his team capture the 2009 N.I.T. title, a victory that marked the first championship for the Nittany Lions in 10 N.I.T. appearances and only their second men’s basketball championship in a postseason tournament. In May of 2009, Stanley graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Labor Studies and Employment Relations. That same year, he began his career as a professional basketball player. Shortly after his college graduation, Stanley played the point guard position for the Leuven Bears, a Division 1 team in Belgium. The following season, he played for Siarka Tarnobrzeg, a Division 1 team in Poland, where he averaged 12.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.4 steals per game. Most recently, Stanley played for DniproAzot, a Division 1 team in Ukraine, where he averaged 15.0 points, 4.6 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. Stanley currently plays for the Indonesia Warriors, and in his debut game, he contributed 24 points and 6 assists to the team’s win.
