The University of Alberta – Augustana Campus and Vikings Men’s Basketball program are pleased to announce the commitment by Cameron Vilcsak to the Vikings beginning in the 2013-2014 season.
The hard-working and talented point guard has been a key member of his St. Albert Catholic High School team, where he played under the tutelage of coaches Evan Holstein and Brett Gaudreau. Cam’s arrival on campus will reunite him with Vikings Basketball Rookie of the Year, Cole Aikens, a high school teammate last season.
In his senior year at SACHS, Cam has been selected to the MVP team in the Edmonton Premier Conference and been named an Edmonton Journal all-star. Cam was also selected as an all-star of San Diego “surf and slam tournament” and was named the MVP of SCA invitational tournament. He punctuated his personal accomplishments this season with a 42 point outburst against Leduc Composite. The summer months have been busy for Cam as well as he represented Team Alberta baseball in 2007-2008 and Team Alberta basketball in 2012.
A strong student in the classroom, Cam youth group won the ‘Leaders of Tomorrow Award’, which coach Dave Drabiuk agrees will set Cam up nicely for a great future at Augustana contributing to the basketball program and the community at large. Says head coach Dave Drabiuk of the newest Viking; “Cam made an immediate impression when he visited our campus and our returning players are excited to welcome this dynamic player to our program.”
His parents, a NAIT alumnus and a U of A alumnus, are very supportive of Cam’s academic choice as he begins his Bachelor of Science degree in physics and biology with designs on graduate level research.
Cam will be participating in the Augustana Vikings High School All-Star Series on April 6th.
