Durham athlete competes in all-star shootout
July 14, 2010

Durham College Athlete of the Year Eric Smith is heading to the All-Star Charity shootout this weekend in Toronto where he will compete to help raise money for War Child Canada.

It will be an all-star cast of superb hoopsters in a Clash of the Charities and one of them will be a local athlete.
Durham College Athlete of the Year Eric Smith is set to take part in the fifth annual All-Star Charity Shootout (ASCS) on Saturday, July 17 hosted by York University.
Smith will join some of Canada’s best men’s basketball players as well as CFL legend Michael “Pinball” Clemons as they raise money in support of two worthy charities; War Child Canada and the Michael “Pinball” Clemons foundation.
The event kicks off at 3:30 p.m. with some of the country’s most talented hoopsters from college and university, in addition to those playing professional basketball in Europe, as they battle in the Clash of the Charities.
Smith, a graduate of Jean Vanier, will represent team War Child coached by Bob Bain of York University. Smith had an excellent sophomore season with the Lords as he took his game to new heights in 2009/2010. The law and security major was dominant among big men in the OCAA as he led the province with 188 rebounds. Smith also finished the year averaging 19.2 points per game, the seventh highest total in Durham College history.
Smith is very familiar with his all-star status, as he was named an OCAA first team all-star and was selected to represent the Lords at the OCAA all-star game. Smith is flying up the all-time Durham College scoring charts as he sits sixth with 756 career points, passing legends such as Ken Upshaw and Augusto Duquesne last season.
The winning team’s charity will receive 60 per cent of the proceeds with the remaining 40 per cent directed to the other charity
Tickets are available for $25 for adults, $20 for students (with valid identification), $10 for children ages seven to 15. Children under seven are free!
