2014 Augie Ciancone Memorial Award Male Recipient
Jeff Tubbs might have been an unknown when he first walked into the BC Provincial Basketball team try-outs, but it didn’t take long before everyone knew who he was.
By virtue of his athletic ability and great attitude, he was selected to represent our province and immediately rose to the position of starting point guard for the team. Last summer he was named captain of the U-17 provincial team and played 49 games throughout Western Canada and US, helping BC finish 6th at the National Championship.
Closer to home, Jeff was captain of the senior boys basketball team at Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary where he led the team to its highest provincial ranking in the school’s history. His abilities caught the eye of Thompson Rivers University and he’ll be playing for them next year.
Jeff is an intelligent student and been on the honour roll and worth ethic list ever term at school, with a current GPA of 3.5. In addition to basketball, he was also a regular player on the Mount Boucherie volleyball team.
As a volunteer basketball coach at his former middle school, Jeff is helping other as yet unknown players to excel in the sport he loves.
