Meet the Seawolf: Mario Gill

Mario Gill is known for being on the basketball team and is often found on the court whether it’s at practice or in a game. Off the court, he’s a smooth talking, fun, out-going guy who knows everyone’s name. In the gym, he’s determined and focused, but when he’s not “on the clock,” he loves to have fun, relax and listen to music. The-21-year old hails from Portland, Oregon and has played for Wilson High School. In 2008, he was named Portland Interscholastic League’s Player of the Year, and also participated in the Les Schwab Northwest Shootout.
