Two-year senior captain, Brendan Elrick, finished his high school career scoring over 700 points in just two years. He averaged just shy of 20 points per game and over 16 rebounds his senior year. He led the team in almost every category offensively and defensively including points, rebounds, blocks, 3-pointers, FT% and FG% while leading his team to a second-place regular season finish (16-2). He was named Division 3 player of the year while also a 1st team all-state player his junior year. Brendan is also a two-year All-Academic Team recipient. Brendan will be attending Clarkson University majoring in Mechanical Engineering while playing basketball for the Golden Knights.
“Brendan is an amazing young man who impacted our team in so many ways. He is one of the most well-rounded individuals I have ever had the pleasure of coaching. Both on and off the court he demonstrated a high degree of sportsmanship. He is as competitive as anyone but also understood what fair play was. He led the team in almost every category, but he was able to back it up in the classroom and the community. His presence and work ethic is infectious to those around him. Even though he is no longer playing basketball for the Hawks, he has influenced returning and future players in the program. I will miss coaching him but I will have the pleasure of watching this young man for the next 4 years continue to raise his level of play in college.”
