Back to Hastings Boys' High School

Arthur came back to school for a visit recently.  Coach Wooten, who was Arthur's coach when he attended Hastings Boys', had asked Arthur to come back to train and give an assessment on HBHS Senior A player Matt Wilson.  Matt needed to be videoed by Coach Wooten training with Arthur to be assessed as part of his application for a scholarship to an American University.  The destination Matt and Coach Wooten are hoping for is in currently Arizona.  Matt was selected earlier this year in the NZ Under 20 and Hawk's squads which are excellent references on his CV and should enhance his chances of gaining scholarship entry.

Good Luck with your application Matt and thanks very much Arthur for coming back to help.
