BY CAMERON SLESSOR (@camronslessor) THE ADVOCATE The North-West Tall Timbers Thunder have named their leadership group for 2017 with two new recruits joining an experienced campaigner in the role. Brad Simpson will once again be an on-court leader taking on the captaincy role for the 2017 SEABL season while American import Jeremiah Ingram and Aussie talent Daniel Sepokas will serve as vice-captains.
Simpson has been with the Thunder since 2014 and has experience in the leadership role with the team while Sepokas brings with him SEABL experience having played with Albury/Wodonga in the past. Ingram joined the Thunder this season after playing college basketball at North Carolina Central University and spending time in Germany prior to his move to Tasmania.
The 6”7 power forward from Detroit earlier admitted he hoped to become a versatile signing for the Thunder this season with experience playing as a guard as well as a tall option.
