This 5’10” shooting guard is averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds per game this season.  He was named MVP at the Vincent Massey Invitational, and an All-Star at the Miles Macdonell Buckeye Classic. Coach Stephen Tackie states, “It has been 4 years of time and effort, but Matt Jonsson has evolved into one of the provinces elite shooter and basketball players. With the ability to lead by example as well as in his superior play, Jonsson has helped transform the Huskies into a contending team this basketball season. Matt's success at basketball comes from consistent hours spent shooting the basketball and improving his basketball IQ. He is one of the best ‘Team First’ players I have coached in over 15 years. His superior shooting touch, mixed with his defensive skill and his ever present leadership influence has made him a big time player in crunch time for the Huskies”.

This grade 12 student maintains a 75% average.
