Myerscough College and current #2 ranked Zion Tordoff has gained a full athletic scholarship to Casper College for the 2017/18 season.

Tordoff will link up with fellow Myerscough student Ayo Nuwe who signed his letter of intent with the T-Birds last week who is really excited about that part of it.

“As juniors we only knew each other as opponents until we became teammates at Myerscough where we have grown close as friends and developed a great and productive understanding on court.” said Tordoff.

“It’s going to be great to share this next step with my good friend at Casper!”

The 6ft 6″ Forward and Great Britain International has really polished his game which has been evident this season being named EABL Western Player of Year after a stellar season averaging 19.3 PPG & 10.9 RPG.

“As a player, through hard work, skill development and team work my game has grown dramatically”.

“Coach Neal Hopkins has always demanded the best from me which has matured my game and productivity on the court to being an impactful two way player.”

Tordoff is ready to mark his imprint in the USA on and off the court.

“I am ambitious and I want to add to an already successful team and push the Thunderbirds on to even greater things repaying Coach Russell’s belief in me. I will be a dedicated student and athlete always striving to be the best I can be in order to reach the goals my ambition demands.”

From everyone at DENG Camp we want to wish Zion all the success at Casper College.
