Year 11 student Corban Baker may be one of the lucky few blessed with natural sporting ability, but his positive attitude and participation has also helped him win the prestigious Pierre de Coubertin Award.

The award recognises secondary schools students who demonstrate values consistent with the Olympic movement through sporting participation. The Victorian Olympic Council presents the awards.

Corban plays basketball, football and soccer for the College’s Pakenham Campus. Outside school, he plays right back position in soccer for the South Melbourne Football Club Under 20s reserves, a team which recently won the National Premier League title.

It was Corban’s fifth championship in a row with the club, making him the first NPL player to achieve this. He captained the Under 13s, 14s, 15s and 16s sides to victory from 2015-2018 and was one of the youngest players selected in the Under 20s side this year, where he had an outstanding season.
