Marcus Davis Head of the Class 2014

VANCOUVER – Three incoming UBC Thunderbirds recruits have been honoured in The Province newspaper’s annual Head of the Class section, which showcases the top high school athletes in BC.

Football prodigy Marcus Davis, basketball phenom Mindy Minhas and soccer star Kyle Sohi are all highlighted as some of the best graduating students in their respective sports.
Davis, of Victoria’s Mt. Douglas Secondary, is the two-time BC High School ‘AAA’ Player of the Year and the reigning Sport BC High School Athlete of the Year. The running back scored 75 touchdowns over his last two seasons and was integral in helping the Rams win three consecutive provincial championships.
Minhas was named the Most Valuable Player at the 2014 BC ‘AAAA’ Provincial Championships in Langley after leading his Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs to their first BC title at the senior level. The 6-foot-4 small forward was second at the provincials with an average of 29.5 points a game over four appearances. He led the tournament with 15.2 rebounds per game.
A product of the strong Surrey United program, Sohi, a student at North Delta Secondary, was on the Surrey United Firefighters team that made the Challenge Trophy national club championship final in the fall. In 2012, Sohi helped Surrey United win the Canadian Soccer Association National Championships U-16 Cup in Charlottetown, P.E.I.

UBC tied for the school with the most representation in this year’s Head of the Class section with three recruits.
