Lambton College varsity men’s basketball player Shawn Hill made headlines last week on the national basketball scene. The first year student from Brantford, Ontario was voted the Freshman that will make the biggest impact this season in Canadian College (CCAA) basketball via national scouting and news service North Pole Hoops.
Hill is a graduate of St. John’s College School where he played his high school basketball with the Green Eagles. He went on to play professionally in Poland after Grade 12 before deciding on returning to Canada to attend college. Lambton College is proud to have him suiting up for the Lions.
“Shawn has had a big impact on our program already,” said James Grant, Head Coach, Varsity Men’s Basketball team at Lambton College. “When Shawn first came down to Lambton for pre-season workouts, you could see right away that he was a great athlete and a tremendous basketball player. Since we started in the gym as a team this fall, he has also shown the ability to be a leader. It is going to be a privilege to watch him and our other ten rookies develop this year.”
The men’s basketball team kicks off its pre-season campaign from October 19 through to October 21 with the following line up:
Laurier (Brantford) @ Lambton College: October 19, 8:00 p.m.
