Langara Falcon Brody Greig (No. 5) was named the best college athlete in Canada by the CCAA.

Langara Falcons point guard Brody Greig was named the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association athlete of the year.

On Wednesday Greig started by thanking his teammates and coaches. “And of course I’d like to thank the CCAA, not only for recognizing my personal achievements, but for recognizing the hard work and success of my team,” he said in a press release from the Oakridge school.

The CCAA considers athletes in all sports at 100 Canadian colleges and technical institutes.

Greig, a six-foot-three senior from McMath secondary in Richmond, led the Falcons to the final four in back-to-back CCAA championships and in March this year, won Langara’s first national title in 15 years in an incredible 88-86 final against the Red Deer College Kings.

Greig kept the Falcons alive in the final moments of the match by sinking seven consecutive free throws in the last 30 seconds. He averaged a triple-double at the national tournament with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists per game. Greig was named the tournament MVP.

“Brody is truly a special player and he might just be the greatest player I have ever coached in my career,” said Falcons coach Paul Eberhardt, who was recognized as the CCAA basketball coach of the year in 2013.

“The best compliment any player can get is when other players say how much they want to play with him and everybody wants to play on his team because he simply makes everybody better.”

In addition to the top CCAA accolade, in his career Greig has also been named the Pacwest player of the year and provincial championship MVP. He is a CCAA All-Canadian.
