Warrnambool Seahawk star Nathan Sobey has launched his professional career off the back of a stellar Big V season after picking up multiple NBL Awards.
At the Docklands in Melbourne last night, Sobey was awards the NBL's Most Improved Player of the 2016/17 season, as well as being named to the NBL's All-Second Team.
Averaging 15.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.0 steals in 27.4 minutes per game, Sobey electrified the country with his incredible ability to flash to the rim as well as his brilliant stroke from beyond the arc.
A credit to his rise, Sobey took his game to another level thanks to his commitment to playing with his home town in Warrnambool throughout 2016.
It was there where he won the Big V Division One Men's championship last year while leading the league in both points and assists.
The hometown star managed to take home the Division One Men's Most Valuable Player and Finals MVP in the same year before heading back to the Adelaide 36ers to propel his career.
Sobey was named to the All NBL-Second Team alongside Sydney Kings teammates Kevin Lisch and Brad Newley, as well as Brisbane Bullets teammates Torrey Craig and Daniel Kickert.
On behalf of the Big V community, we would like to congratulate Nathan on his outstanding achievements over the past 12-18 months.
