Mitchell Tzambazis is the complete package. His defence is relentless but his true talents lay just outside of the three-point line. Mitchell shooting prowess has brought an offensive tsunami to our squad. He plays without reserve and was a difference maker in winning a LOSSA Tier 2 Championship this season. The future is looking bright for this young player and the Redhawks.
Brett Wells is a strong player in multiple ways. He is very determined and practices hard to improve his individual skill set. As well, he expects his teammates to perform at their best and is willing to hold both himself and others accountable. In addition, he is physically strong too! He loves to score ‘And one’s!’ and has even scored from both his knees (after a rebound) and from half court (on a buzzer beater) this past season. Brett led his team to a LGSSAA County Championship in 2019 and looks to challenge for EOSSAA and OFSAA in the years to come.
Jahari Williamson is a very positive force on any team he is a part of. He has a very good touch from distance and a good handle. He is a solid defender and a popular teammate because of his approach to the game. He definitely has huge upside moving forward.
Raef Wykes is a slick shooting guard who is as versatile from the three point line as he is driving to the basket. Always looking for a way to get his team involved Raef excels at looking for the open man on the wing or in the post. Always striving to improve his game, defense has become a focus that has improved exponentially as the season progressed. A leader by example that does anything that needs to be done to help the team to win games. Raef is a tireless worker that practices daily to become a top tier player.
