April 30, 2019 – Looking to reload his lineup after narrowly missing the ACAC playoffs last season, Lethbridge College Kodiaks men’s basketball head coach Ryan Heggie is excited to begin rolling out a medley of additions to his 2019-20 roster.
In the first of multiple signings planned to be announced over the next two weeks, Heggie has confirmed the commitment of southern Alberta product Brock Dewsbery.
A shooting guard who played his high school ball for the Raymond Comets, Dewsbery promises to bring additional skill and length to the Kodiaks roster.
“At 6’3, Brock brings size and an extra competitive nature to our team,” says Heggie. “He’s a skillful scorer who can strike from inside the paint, attacking the rim or stretching the D with the three ball.”
Asked to describe himself as a player, Dewsbery says he’s a “shooter and slasher” that loves to take it to the basket.
“I like to use my athleticism to go through the lane and finish through contact,” says an excited Dewsbery. “I really just love playing the sport of basketball and will give my heart every night.”
Coming to Lethbridge College was an easy decision for Dewsbery, who is following the path of family members before him.
“I’ve known about LC and the Kodiaks since birth,” says Dewsbery. “I’ve had family members play here before and they all speak positively of their experience. I’m excited to play somewhere that my family has left a mark.”
Playing competitive post-secondary basketball while staying close to home was also an important factor in signing with the Kodiaks.
“I look forward to being so close to my hometown and staying connected with my community. I also love to win, so I look forward to winning lots this year!”
Looking to guide his program back to the playoffs in the perennially tough ACAC south division, Heggie is excited to add a fierce competitor that excels on both ends of the floor.
“Brock has the ability to be a matchup problem on both ends of the court,” says Heggie. “We’re really excited to bring Brock into the program.”
The Kodiaks will begin training camp later this summer, with the 2019-20 ACAC regular season set to begin in early October.
