Kyle Molock enters his first season as a student assistant at SJU after having his playing career cut short by injuries.
In his new role this season, Molock will conduct individual workouts for players in rehab and those not traveling with the team, among other support duties. He will also serve as the team’s representative to Saint Joseph’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
Molock, a junior accounting major, joined the Hawks in the summer of 2012, but redshirted the season after re-tearing the ACL in his right knee during off-season workouts.
After a season of rehabilitation, Molock was cleared to play in 2013-14. He saw action in eight games for the Atlantic 10 champion Hawks before re-injuring the knee in February, which sidelined him for the rest of the year.
Molock, from Dublin, Ohio, starred for Dublin Coffman High School As a senior, he was averaging 19.0 points per game before tearing the ACL in his right knee. He scored 14.0 points per game as as sophomore and was ranked as the state’s best point guard in the Class of 2012 but suffered a severe injury to all of the major ligaments in his left knee, which caused him to miss his junior season.
His family originally hails from Wilmington, Del.
