Phillips was nominated by the Mirboo North Junior Basketball Association for his contribution on and off the field.
According to association coordinator Sharon Slann, he is a great role model and mentor to younger players in the club.
“Benny is a valuable member of our club because of the various contributions he makes,” she said.
“He is showing great potential as an umpire and is coaching his brother’s Under 10 mixed team. In addition he plays for our club and is an excellent leader. Benny happily volunteers to help out around the club without even being asked.”
GippSport executive officer Barry Switzer presented Benny with a scholarship to the value of $400 at a Mary Mackillop Catholic Regional College assembly on Tuesday.
The Mirboo North Junior Basketball Association also received a cheque for $100 for providing the nomination.
“GippSport is very keen to promote young people like Benny who not only participate in sport, but also make a contribution off the field of play. His mother, association and school are justifiably proud of him,” Barry said.
GippSport, Victoria Police and McDonald’s Family Restaurants combine to make the Most Disciplined Player program possible for junior sporting clubs in Gippsland.
Clubs are encouraged to join this free weekly program and to make sure they provide nominations for this scholarship on an annual basis.
