Jehyve Floyd to Receive Cooney Award
WORCESTER, Mass. – Senior forward Jehyve Floyd, a member of the Holy Cross men’s basketball team, has been selected as the 2018-2019 winner of the Honorable John P. Cooney Memorial Award. Presented by the Holy Cross Varsity Club in memory of Judge John P. Cooney (Class of 1923), the Cooney Award goes to a senior letterwinner who performed beyond all expectations with courage, loyalty and dedication.
During his first two years on campus, Floyd played a small role for the Crusaders, averaging just 2.6 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. Through his hard work and determination, he then emerged as one of the team’s top players during his junior year, averaging 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocked shots per game while connecting on 66.8 percent of his field goal attempts. Floyd continued to improve as a senior, posting 12.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.4 blocked shots per contest and making 66.9 percent of his field goal attempts.
Named All-Patriot League during both his junior and senior years, Floyd was also selected as the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year in both 2018 and 2019. He led the conference in field goal percentage and blocked shots during both his junior and senior seasons, while setting Holy Cross single-season records for field goal percentage and blocked shots as a senior. Floyd also finished his career as both the Patriot League and Holy Cross all-time leader in career field goal percentage (65.6 percent).
In addition to his accomplishments on the court, Floyd has also been an active member of the campus community. He served as one of the leaders for the Men of Color Athletes and was a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Floyd has also been a mentor with the Holy Cross Odyssey Program and served on the Crusader Athletics Fund Senior Class Gift committee.
Floyd will be presented with the Cooney Award at the 64th annual Holy Cross Varsity Club Hall of Fame Dinner & Ceremonial Banquet, to be held on Saturday, May 4, in the Hogan Campus Center. Tickets are still available for the event for only $65.00, and can be purchased by clicking here.
