1st Year Kinesiology
The UNB Varsity Reds/Valley Graphics male Athlete of the Month, for September, is Joe Hamilton, from the men’s soccer team.
The first year centre back made significant contributions as the Varsity Reds went 2-2-2 in their six regular season games in September.
Hamilton scored the team’s lone goal in their first win and has been a solid presence on the Varsity Reds’ back line.
“Joe has been able to step into a major role right away,” said Varsity Reds head coach Miles Pinsent. “He has very good defending instincts, but is also tremendous at playing out of our end.”
September saw Hamilton earn back to back Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza Athlete of the Week honours.
“He is becoming more impactful on his teammates and the game,” said Pinsent.
Hamilton and his teammates visit Moncton on Saturday before returning home to face Mount Allison on Sunday. Game time, Sunday, is scheduled for 3:15pm.
