Boston Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk is a native of Kamloops, British Columbia, and on Thursday, September 25 he returned home to deliver the keynote speech at the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack Athletic scholarship breakfast.
The topic of Olynyk’s speech was ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, and all funds raised at the event went towards assisting student athletes at Thompson Rivers University.
Kelly Olynyk was an NCAA All-American at Gonzaga and joined the Celtics in 2013 as a first round pick. During his rookie campaign he averaged 8.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game for Boston, and finished with a late season burst. In the Celtics final three games he posted 25.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game, showing the league what he’s truly capable of.
Heading into next season Boston has high hopes that Olynyk will continue his late season run of big games, and be the dominant force down low that they believed he could be when they made him the 13th Overall Pick in 2013.
