SebThe University of Alberta – Augustana Campus and Vikings Men’s Basketball program are pleased to announce the commitment by Sebastien Turcotte to the Vikings beginning in the 2013-2014 season.

Sebastien is a diverse multi-sport standout and high-honours student from Bishop J. Mahoney High School in Saskatoon who caught the eye of Vikings head coach Dave Drabiuk when the Saints played in the Jasper Place Reb Invitational in December.

“Sebastien’s coach at BJM , Brett Hoffman, is an excellent coach that really cares about developing player talent and molding people of great character. I know we are getting an excellent basketball player, student and new member of the Augustana community” states coach Dave Drabiuk.

As a member of the BJM Saints football team Sebastien won both city and provincial championships in 2011 and 2012 playing wide receiver and being named the recipient of his team’s hustle and desire award in both seasons. In 2012 the 6’ 6” forward scored the winning basket as the Saints claimed the Saskatoon championship in basketball.

Coach Dave Drabiuk noted that “Sebastien was quietly making his presence felt at ID camp this year and our players immediately pointed to him as ‘our kind of guy’ in terms of his demeanor, competitiveness and his commitment to success. His skills are still developing and he will only get better during this next phase of his basketball life.”

Sebastien has been an honour student in grades 9-12 and he will enter a Bachelor of Science program en route to medical school.
