Kleinschmidt Takes Over the Reigns at York
Kleinschmidt was a McDonald's All-American coming out of Gordon Tech High School in 1991.
He went on to become one of the greatest players in DePaul history. From 1991-1995, Kleinschmidt became the only DePaul player with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 300 assists, 100 steals and 100 three-point field goals.
Kleinschmidt became the first DePaul player to earn conference player of the year honors when he was named Great Midwest Conference player of the year in 1995. He was also an honorable mention All-American choice in 1995.
He led the Great Midwest in scoring as a senior averaging 21.4 ppg. He is the only Blue Demon to twice lead the team in both scoring and assists in the same season.
Kleinschmidt's most memorable moment at DePaul came on February 25th, 1995. While trailing Louisville by three points with eight seconds remaining, Kleinschmidt converted a four-point play to win the contest.
Tom went on to play professionally overseas for 11 seasons in Italy, Venezuela, and Japan.
Kleinschmidt returned to DePaul in 2008, where he worked as an intern for the basketball team during the 2008-09 season. He then took over as Director of Basketball Operations for the 2009-10 season.
Kleinschmidt takes over a York Dukes squad that finished 20-9 last season. York loses nine seniors including all-time leading scorer Will Sullivan, but does return sharpshooting guard David Cohn.
