David Froese

The Pilots will be adding a true big man for the 2022 NCCAA season. David Froese, formerly of Westwood Collegiate and Canadian Mennonite University, will be transferring to the Pilots. The 6’8” center played for Alex Barra in the Mayhem club. “David is a young man that works hard every day, to get better at basketball. He does not want any regrets in trying to reach his potential. For as amazing a basketball player he will become, he is becoming an even better man. I wish him all the best in his new basketball experience at Providence. I am happy that he will have an opportunity to show what he can do.” Alex Barra

Froese is known by his past coaches as a hard worker and a high basketball IQ. The mobile center will have plenty of opportunity to showcase his skills when he travels the US with the Pilots this fall. The added depth in the center position will aid the Pilots in their campaign to earn their first birth to the NCCAA National Tournament.

David’s IQ doesn’t end with the basketball court. David was an Honours student at Westwood Collegiate from 2019-2021. He was awarded the Headingley Chamber of Commerce Leaders of Tomorrow Post-Secondary Scholarship and the Veolia North America Son’s and Daughter’s Post-Secondary Scholarship. We expect his drive on the basketball court to be mirrored in the classroom.

“Coach Pierre Dubreuil has a strategic vision for individual players as well as the overall team success at Providence. I’m excited to join him, and all the talent that the Pilots roster already has. I would like to continue to develop my basketball IQ, and take my skill set to the next level. Under the guidance of Coach Pierre, I strive to be a strong contributing force for the team.” David Froese

“David is a huge addition to our roster! During his first year at the college level, he proved to be a threat inside by scoring 15 points and grabbing 6 offensive rebounds (10 total) in the MCAC finals. By transferring from CMU to the Pilots, David is going to gain structure and directive to get his game to the next level. He will also benefit from playing with experienced players like the 2022 finals MVP Riley Paul. David is a powerful finisher, a solid rebounder and an obvious danger in the key for anybody driving to the rim. After our first workout with him, I can confidently say that he will contribute to our team on day one. I’m looking forward to seeing David in a Pilots’ uniform soon. Welcome to the Pilots family, David.” Pierre Dubreuil

David will enter the Health Sciences program, studying Biology, this fall.
