The monthly sports awards recognize outstanding sports individuals every month. Due to the COVID pandemic the awards stopped because sports had stalled since March 2020.
The awards seek to award sports excellence amongst different sports groups. This week at Route 256 a ceremony was held to award the different sports people.
Amongst whom Jinja Hippos Maxwell Ebonga won the month’s Rugby player award. The full back beat off competition from Justin Kimono and Pius Ogena of Kobs thanks to his five tries and six conversions.
He credits the win to his hard work. He also thanked his teammates for trusting him on the pitch.
More is expected from the full back as they’re back in action this weekend after the Easter holiday break.
