Tosan Evbuomwan is an 18-year-old basketballer and part of the Newcastle Eagles Basketball academy and Team Newcastle. Having made his Senior National League debut for Team Newcastle at just 17, the eagles voted him as their most valuable player. Tosan has played for England Under 18 level where he was one of the top points scorers, and last summer made the Great Britain squad for the FIBA Under 18 European Championships. His future ambition is to study in America, using Basketball to facilitate this.
The 2019 Rising Star Awards were sponsored by North East based SOS Group, an independent leader in providing organisations across the UK and abroad with printers, copiers, MFDs, Document Management Solutions and support services.
