Isaac Humphries

Now 7 feet tall ,Isaac Humphries was one of our early recipients. he started playing basketball when he was 12 and quickly became a rep player for Sutherland then NSW and Australia. the early commitments for Isaacs family were significant and the MPF was able to guarantee he was able to compete and follow a dream that is now very much a reality.

In 2013 Isaac left the shire for the AIS in Canberra and was selected to play at the World Cup in Dubai wearing green and gold. Isaacs life changed forever due to his outstanding performance at the titles. he broke the all time record for most points scored at a World Cup including 41 points in the game against Canada . He made the World starting 5 at the tournament and the phones started to ring. his days were numbered here in Australia because the USA had him in their sights. he accepted a scholarship with La lumiere high school and was courted by nearly every major college after that.

It was the reputation of John Calapari that swayed Isaac to join The University x Kentucky Wildcats . today 14 mths later after finishing a very solid first season Isaac will grace the court in season 2 as apart of the starting 5.

He is poised to be NBA drafted next year in the top 25 all going well. Isaacs life is one of flying in the college private jet throughout USA to frequent interviews autograph signing etc , somewhat a kin to a rockstar. He plays every week in front of 20,000 basketball tragics .

His workload is intense and training regime enormous and he has created his own destiny.

I know he holds MPF in high regard and remembers those tough times and our timely help. We wish him all the best in the next part of this amazing journey and remind you that all College basketball is televised on espn Foxtel weekly if you want to follow our successful athlete. thanks. Season opens this Friday.
