Gladstone Port City Power men have signed 6’8 small forward, Cirkook Riak from NSW.
Cirkook has a wealth of experience, previously playing for Lamar State Junior College in Texas, Werribee in Victorias Big V competition, St George in NSWs Warratah League, as well as representing an Australian contingent at the recent Jump10 world challenge in China. These vast playing experiences will serve him well as he embarks on his next challenge… with Gladstone in the QBL.
Coach Walmsley said “Our signing of Cirkook is further evidence of the value we are placing on the character of our athletes. Each reference spoke on his infectious personality and his positivity, which is so vital for our program and its direction. On the court, he is a 6’8 athletic dynamo, with an ability to use his length and versatility to impact the game on both ends of the floor. He is a good perimeter shooter and runs the floor like a gazelle. Cirkook has great competitive instincts and will no doubt become a fan favourite very quickly. He may not be familiar with the QBL yet, but it is only a matter of time before the QBL becomes familiar with him. I appreciate that Cirkook has put his faith in us and has committed to represent our program, it’s fans, the sponsors and the broader community of Gladstone in 2018”
About his commitment, Cirkook said “I’m very excited about this new adventure, joining the club and being able to represent the city of Gladstone and the Port City Power. I’ve heard that the QBL is a competitive league and that immediately caught my attention. After countless conversations with family and friends, it was clear that making the decision to play for Coach Brady was one that was just too good to pass up. I’m excited to live in a new city and further my basketball career in the QBL”
Welcome to the family, Cirkook!
