2016 Mass Prep Stars Boys Lacrosse Prep/Private Offensive Player of the Year: Johnny Hincks ‘16
Belmont Hill senior middie Johnny Hincks ’16 is our 2016 Prep/Private Offensive Player of the Year.
The Williams College bound Hincks helped lead Belmont Hill to a 2016 ISL Championship. Belmont Hill (14-1) became the kings of the one-goal wins, earning numerous one-goal thrillers in regulation and in overtime, on their way to the outright championship.
“The one goal games were certainly the highlights of the 2016 season for me,” Hincks told Mass Prep Stars. “Specifically, the Nobles and Governor’s games. The game we played against Nobles may have been the best game I have ever been apart of. It was incredible to see how well we played as a team....and to storm the field after Timmy Seibel’s goal in overtime.”
Hincks was also named a US All-American this season and was selected for the 2016 BostonLax All-American game.
Hincks, a senior captain for BH this season, exploded on the scene in 2016, totaling 55 points on 28 goals and 27 assists. Hincks was the go-to weapon on a balanced Hillers team after totaling 20 points in his junior campaign.
“My junior year I was really the third or fourth option on offense, and the seniors ahead of me all graduated,” Hincks said. "I knew this year was the year I had to step up and be the guy. In the off-season, other than playing lacrosse and lifting, I tried to become a better all-around athlete. I decided to pick up basketball for the first time, and I made the Belmont Hill Varsity basketball team. Basketball really helped me develop my speed and agility, and I think it really helped me this season.”
The senior will head to Williams after many fond memories, lSL championships and numerous individual post-season honors.
“I am really going to miss Coach (Tim) Sullivan, Coach (Christopher) Butler and all my teammates, especially my class,” Hincks said. “It is not possible to find a closer-knit bunch of brothers than our six seniors. I appreciate everything my teachers, coaches, friends and family have done for me over my time at Belmont Hill. I am really excited that next year at Williams, almost all my NESCAC games will be against former Belmont Hill teammates.”
