Former Mohawk College basketball and touch football star Jim Gaunt has been elected to the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

Gaunt and 34 others, including athletes, coaches and builders of the association, will be enshrined in ceremonies at the Oakville Convention Centre on April 29.

Gaunt was inducted into the Mohawk Mountaineers Hall of Fame in 2006.

His outstanding contributions to Mohawk Athletics from 1986-1990 were recognized both in sport and academics.

He had a career 12 points per game average, played on two OCAA bronze medal basketball teams and was a second team OCAA all-star in 1989.

Gaunt was also team captain for two years and continued as an assistant coach until 1995.

The graduate of the computer Ssystems technology program was also outstanding in touch football, helping Mohawk to four straight OCAA gold medals.

In 1989, Gaunt was named all-round male athlete. In 1990, he earned Mohawk’s highest awards for achievements athletically and academically — the Dr. Sam Mitminger Award and the President’s Gold Medal.
