Crispus Attucks has yet another reason to celebrate. Attucks senior Sincere McMahon and Attucks coach Chris Hawkins have been named City Player of the Year and City Coach of the Year, respectively.
Their work on basketball courts across Central Indiana has shown that it truly takes a team to make the dream work.
The titles voted on by the City coaches top off a successful season for the Tigers with an 18-5 record.
“It feels good. Our players and coaching staff did a wonderful job this year. It’s a team award and without them, we wouldn’t be where we are right now,” said Hawkins, Crispus Attucks High School boys basketball coach.
“I told our team that this award is an extension of our basketball team and I accept it on their behalf. I have a great staff and we’re fortunate to coach so many great players, who go about it the right way. It’s a team award, to be honest. It’s an honor to represent IPS and Crispus Attucks High School. Go Tigers!”
