“This year” player-of-the-year was difficult. Our heart said Bryce Leavitt, our brain said Andy Avgi, and then the numbers said Travante. We get that Andy was surrounded by tons of talented guys and so he didn’t get the focus that he might have, but with our formula that doesn’t matter and this guy epitomizes that. Consistency, commitment to fundamentals, and unselfish play wins the day. Travante took charge of the offense, played defense, made the most of his minutes, and we had a blast watching him this season.
Our GNAC Player-of-the-Year is Travante Williams, University of Alaska-Fairbanks, senior.
When it came down to it, the numbers weren’t close. Travante was nominated for player of the week almost every single week via his efficient shooting, made free-throws, rebounding, and doing the little things. We’re sad that we only got a year with him, but still thank him for bringing his talent to the GNAC and doing so consistently night in and night out.
Congrats Travante!! Good luck overseas!
