Player of the Week: Nathaniel Powell

EABL Player of the Week has been awarded to Nathaniel Powell of Barking Abbey School, after a Week 1 performance where he lead his squad with 23 points and 13 rebounds.

Powell’s efforts, which included shooting 11-16 from the floor, helped national champions Barking Abbey start their season with a 93-58 win over Copleston High School.

Powell spoke to EABL about receiving the award, saying, “I’m extremely thankful for this award. It is a great opportunity for me and my team to play in this league.”

Barking Abbey Head Coach Lloyd Gardner added, “Nathaniel has made an excellent start to the season.  I think that he is starting to reap the benefits of the work that he has put in behind the scenes for a substantial period of time. In the game against Copleston, he did a tremendous job of creating his own offence through rebounding and running the floor, while defensively he has started to show the versatility that he has the potential for.”
