Brendon Matthews has been nominated for the Viva Energy Club Legend award.
Brendon has been a member of the Bellarine Peninsula Basketball Association for over 15 years. He has coached a number of domestic and representative teams and worked as the elite program coordinator voluntarily.
Brendon’s nominator said he is a fantastic role model, having given up most of his free time coaching and organising the representative program, which at the start and end of each season would take around minimum of 10 hours a week, on top of running his own business.
Brendon has encouraged a lot of girls to play basketball and has kept them playing right through to seniors.
One of the girls that Brendon has coached from U12s through to U18s has gone on to represent Australia in the U19 team.
