Tommy Funk of the Army West Point Men’s Basketball team received the Army Athletic Association Award, the United States Military Academy’s most prestigious athletic honor.
The AAA trophy is awarded annually to the male and female cadet-athletes who display the “most valuable service to intercollegiate athletics during a career as a cadet.”
This year marks the 116th anniversary of the AAA Award, which was first presented to football’s Horatio Hackett in 1904.
Funk becomes the ninth men’s basketball cadet all-time to receive the award and the first since Army Hall of Famer Kevin Houston ’87 earned the honor in 1987. He joins Sam Sullivan of the women's rugby team as the male and female recipient.
Funk went down as one of the best point guards in program history after he displayed his passing, scoring and leadership abilities on the hardwood during his four seasons at West Point. The four-year floor general did not miss a single game since putting on an Army jersey back as a plebe in 2016 and went on to start in all 124 career outings. For his career, he averaged 12.5 points, 5.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds per tilt while shooting 42 percent from the field and 34 percent from deep. Read more.
