Max Allin To Be Inducted Into Wilfrid Laurier Athletic Hall of Fame
Chatham’s Max Allin will be one of seven new members inducted as part of the 2020 class for the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawk Hall of Fame.
Allin will be the 12th player in men’s basketball team history to join the Hall of Fame and is one of just eight Golden Hawks to ever earn All-Canadian recognition.
“This year’s induction class is truly special. They all join the Hall of Fame, together with the most highly decorated student-athletes, builders and teams to ever don the Golden Hawks uniform,” commented Peter Baxter, the director of athletics and recreation in a school news release.
“While we are disappointed to not have the opportunity celebrate with them in person at this time, we know that the virtual events honouring them during Homecoming weekend will still leave a lasting memory within all of them while playing for the Golden Hawks.”
Allin finished his OUA basketball career as Wilfrid Laurier’s all-time leader in rebounds (799) and assists (434), while ranking second all-time in points (1745).
The Chatham product led the country in scoring (23.2 points per game) in 2012-2013 en route to OUA All-Star honours and being named a CIS Second Team All-Canadian.
The other athletes being inducted include Dillon Campbell, Laura Brooker, Emily Brown, and Kelsey Tikka.
Allin went on to play professionally in Australia following his OUA career.
Inductees will be honoured on Wilfrid Laurier’s social media channels in the week leading up to Homecoming weekend, which runs from September 25 to 27. Select inductees will also participate in a Q&A session on Zoom on Friday, September 25 at 7 p.m.
