Male Athlete 2019
Athlete of the Year
Athlete of the Year Awards are presented annually to a male senior and a female senior student who have made a significant impact on Hamilton District Christian High Athletics. The recipients must demonstrate the traits of leadership, sportsmanship, excellence, and work ethic. They show healthy competition and a passion for their sports.
Justin joined us at HDCH in grade ten and made a powerful impact on our sports teams right away. In addition to knowing basketball well, he also developed his volleyball skills and grew a love for the game. Justin played both soccer and beach volleyball. In his senior years, he was an essential contributor to four OFSAA championships. Justin has worked hard and developed his great athletic ability, which is what allowed him to find quick success in volleyball.
On the basketball team, Justin’s skills made him a go-to player whose knowledge of the game and communication skills made him a great teammate. He worked incredibly hard and showed a determined desire to be better. He listened to coaching and applied what he learned.
Along with Justin’s skills comes a natural ability to be a vocal leader. He is positive, relational, encouraging, intelligent, and very motivated. His teammates could depend on him to pick them up when they were down and work hard to the very end of each game.
