A New York native who used his post-graduate year to both build up his body and prove himself against higher level competition, Ellis stuffed all columns of the stat sheet this year with 14.8 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game.
“Will is an explosive lead guard who led the team in scoring, rebounding, and assists. Players lie that usually have great careers in the NEC,” said Cheshire Academy head coach Kevin Kehoe.
