Athlete of the Week: Jon Foulds

Unless you are from Norwich and watch the Purple Tornado play basketball year in an year out, Jon Foulds was probably not on your radar to start the 2010-2011 season. Foulds, like every other returning NHS player this season, came off the bench a year ago to fill a small niche.

Foulds was brought into games to give Norwich some offense, and he did have one 17-point outing a year ago. Still, Foulds and his 4.6-point-per-game average last season gave no indication of his true capabilities.

“To be honest, I think we (the coaching staff) had higher expectations this season for Jon than he did,” said Norwich 25th-year head coach, Mark Abbott. “It’s always been a confidence issue with Jon. I don’t think he realizes how good he is, and not many have the talent and ability he has. He plays the game, in my mind, a lot like Nick Brunick played – and Nick was a heck of a player for us.”
