2022’s Isaiah Levine takes great pride in being a tremendous team leader

Isaiah Levine is one of the best players from the Tampa, FL area in the Class of 2022.  


The 6-foot, 165-pound Levine, who attends Community Christian School, is a dynamic player that works at a variety of positions. 



No matter the opponent, every game Levine is determined to give it his all. 


Levine is going all out. 


The motor is always at full throttle whenever Levine steps between the lines.


“My mindset is to be a leader and always look to make people better around me,” Levine said. 


Levine has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the court. Levine tells why he enjoys the game of basketball so much. 


“I love getting away from everything and feeling free,” Levine said. 


Levine has learned many valuable lessons from playing basketball that he applies to his everyday life. 


“Playing has taught me that there are people in this world that are always going to want to see you fall, and the trials you go through help us on how to control it later in life,” Levine said. 


Levine shares his favorite memory of playing basketball.


“Winning states in 7th grade because of the feeling that you’re the best team in the state,” Levine said. “To work hard for it made it feel great.”


Levine takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Levine makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.


“I demonstrate being a good teammate by showing them I never get down or get frustrated,” Levine said. “The best advice I give is to always keep your head up and let no one dictate your game.”


Levine is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.


“I’ve learned from my coaches to always continue to work on my craft. Also, to always become better spiritually by getting closer to God and becoming a better example for the youth,” Levine said. “The best advice I’ve gotten is aways live like it’s your last day because you don’t know how long you have to play the game you love.”


Levine patterns his mentality after this future Hall of Fame forward.  

“I look up to LeBron James because of the love he has for the game and the passionate way he conducts himself as a leader,” Levine said. 

Levine lists Bible as his favorite subject in school. 

“It helps me understand and get closer to God,” Levine said. 


Levine explains his collegiate aspirations. 


“My dream college is Duke,” Levine said. “It’s always been since I was young.”


Levine is striving for greatness in all that he does. 


“My goals on the court are to push myself and be better than the next man behind me,” Levine said. “My goals off the court is to be a leader in my community and set an example on how to work hard.”
