El Dorado High School
After graduating from Tuffree Middle school, Derick went immediately to the El Dorado Basketball summer camp where he got to know the El Dorado High School Basketball coaches. He had an opportunity to play with the El Dorado Freshman and Junior Varsity Basketball teams during the summer.
After the Summer camp was over, Derick played exclusively with the El Dorado Junior Varsity Basketball team. He was a starting guard for the JV team during the Fall preseason. Shortly before the regular basketball season started, Derick was elevated to the Varsity team. Derick now plays in regular rotation with the El Dorado Varsity Basketball team.
