Mohawk’s Jasmin Cull named OCAA Top Male Athlete

Mohawk’s Jasmin Cull has been named the 2007-2008 OCAA Male Athlete of the Year. The award is presented by the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and Volley Sport Plus (VSP).

The fourth year men’s volleyball player turned in one of the most dominant seasons in OCAA history along side his Mohawk Mountaineers teammates. Cull led his team on a mission to rewrite the OCAA record book erasing five individual or team records this season, including destroying the single season service aces record by 27 points.

Leading the Mountaineers team to their first CCAA National Bronze medal and their second OCAA Provincial Championship title in three years, Cull was named the CCAA National Men’s Volleyball Player of the Year, an honour not won by an Ontario volleyball player since 1998. He was also named the OCAA Player of the Year and a CCAA All-Canadian, both for the second consecutive year.

Jasmin will be presented with his OCAA Athlete of the Year Award, Thursday, April 24 at a 12:00pm ceremony at Mohawk College.
