Glens Falls’ Jimmer Fredette Wins ESPY For Best College Athlete
You can add another award to Jimmer Fredette’s already crowded mantle. Tonight at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, the Glens Falls native took home the ESPY Award for Best Male College Athlete.
The BYU guard led the nation in scoring at 28.5 points per game. He also lead the Cougars to their first Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 1981.
Fredette won virtually every major college basketball player of the year award including the Naismith, the Wooden Award, the Adolph Rupp Trophy and the Oscar Robertson Award.
On June 23rd, the Glens Falls High School graduate was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 10th overall pick in the NBA Draft. He was soon traded to the Sacramento Kings.
Like it or not, Jimmer is a cultural phenomenon. The dude’s even had a rap song dedicated to him. Check out “Teach Me How To Jimmer” via YouTube.
