A Kamil Makes Eight, ISU Signs North Platte’s Gawrzydek
6-11 center completes recruiting class for 2010-11 season
Pocatello, ID --- Idaho State University Joe O’Brien and his coaching staff have probably earned a little R-&-R as O’Brien has announced the signing of 6-11 center Kamil Gawrzydek of Teresin, Poland for the 2010-11 season, completing a large eight-man recruiting class. Gawrzydek joins Abner Moreira of Western Wyoming Junior College, Nick Mason of Memphis Southwind High School, Chase Grabau of North Platte Community College, Justin Brunswick of Middletown Madison High School, Kenny McGowen of the College of the Sequioas, Brandon Glanz of Las Vegas Coronado High School and Andre' Hatchett of Tucson Santa Rita High School. Gawrzydek’s signing completes the 2010 recruiting class, one that features four JC transfers and four high school seniors.
Gawrzydek, who was a college teammate of Bengal recruit Chase Grabau at North Platte CC, was slated to be the starting center last year before injuries derailed his sophomore season. He ended up playing in 23 games for North Platte, and 223 minutes total. Despite that, he still shot .686 from the field and averaged 3.7 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in less than 10 minutes of action. Despite his limited minutes he still finished third on the team in blocks as well.North Platte last year went 29-6 and won the NJCAA Region IX championship, advancing to NJCAA National Tournament for the first time in school history.
So as soon as I get Joe's quote, that will be on the site, so it's a sneak preview for all the bloggers that read this.
And Now Help Me Win a VAN!!!!
I entered a homemade video into a contest sponsored by the Jay and Jack Lost Podcast, and it got picked as a finalist. I've already won a finalist prize, which is a replica of the LOST four-toed statue, but the winner of the internet vote wins a real Dharma Initiative Van. This is totally for real, and I could use help from the Bengal faithful...all you have to do is go directly to my video here....
and click the thumbs up button underneath the video. You have to be logged into Youtube to do that, but I really would appreciate it. Thanks gang
