Damon Hall-Jones, Bowdoin College
The recipient of Bowdoin's Sidney J. Watson Award, recognizing the top multi-sport athlete at the school, Damon Hall-Jones established himself as the Polar Bear's do-it-all performer during his four years.
A graduate of Roxbury Latin, Hall-Jones made immediate contributions to the football and track teams his rookie year. He earned a reputation as a versatile superstar, playing defensive end, inside linebacker and outside linebacker for the three-time CBB (Colby-Bates-Bowdoin) champion football team while running sprints, relays, throwing javelin and shot put for the indoor and outdoor track squads.
As a senior, he was named Second-Team All-NESCAC in football and won the NESCAC Championship in the 100 meter dash. He also scored in four different events in the Maine State Championship meet as the Polar Bears claimed their first crown in eight years. All while graduating with a degree in Psychology and Teaching minor.
“Athletics are just one way I have been able to be involved in the communities of Bowdoin and Brunswick," according to Hall-Jones "We run summer camps for the local children and even have races for the kids during our meets. Interactions like these bring great perspective especially as I envision my future as a middle school coach and teacher.”
