November 18, 2013


The BCPBL and UBC Baseball program are proud to announce Coquitlam Reds Outfielder Max Hollingworth as the 2013 recipient of the BCPBL Academic/Athletic Excellence Award. 

Max was voted a 1st team OF in the BCPBL this year.  He had a dominating summer hitting .336, leading the league in Homeruns and HBP, finished 2nd in RBI’s, and was top 10 in doubles and triples while stealing 15 bases. 

He was admitted to the Faculty of Engineering at UBC with a high school average of 89.8% and is presently taking a full course load while playing his Freshman year with the baseball program. 

Head Coach Terry McKaig commented “we were very fortunate to recruit Max to UBC and we are very excited to see what he will do for us over his UBC career.  I’m not sure we have ever had an incoming Freshman with the physical abilities of Max and I look forward to seeing him round out his overall game.  He is also a very gifted student and is at UBC for all the right reasons….pursue a world class education while chasing his baseball dreams. Max joins an impressive list of top BCPBL players that continue to choose UBC as their choice for college baseball."

The award of $6,000/year, will cover his costs for tuition, fees, and books.  Congratulations to Max.
