At Hawks, we pay tribute to the late great:
Joseph Emmanuel White
AKA “Big Bird”

School player, National League player, England player. Senior Coach, Junior Coach, Mentor. British Basketball legend for over 2 decades.
On 8th December 2002, Joseph Emmanuel White lost his battle against cancer at the age of 40.
