Bruce St. Peter might be a bit more comfortable than your average freshman when he arrives on the Husson University campus.
Husson announced on Wednesday that the Ellsworth High School basketball standout plans to further his education and his career at the Bangor school.
St. Peter is a legacy for the Eagles. His grandfather D. Bruce MacGregor was a successful longtime coach of the men’s basketball and golf programs at Husson.
His mother, the former Jill MacGregor, played basketball at Husson.
“Bruce is like family, and we are excited to have him join our program,” Husson coach Warren Caruso said in a press release. “Bruce had a terrific senior season and continues to develop. He plays hard and does a lot of the dirty work which helps a team win.”
St. Peter is a 6-foot-5 post player who averaged 14.5 points and 10 rebounds per game while shooting 51.4 percent from the floor during his senior year. He helped the Eagles win the 2016 Class B North championship, the program’s first regional title in 28 years, and earned the William C. Warner Most Valuable Player award.
St. Peter was an All-Big East second-team choice in 2015 and 2016 and was named to the Big East All-Defensive Team in 2013, 2015 and 2016. He played AAU Basketball for Black Bear North.
St. Peter also was a standout on the soccer pitch being named to the 2014 and 2015 Big East All-Conference Soccer squad as a goalie.
Jill St. Peter is a 1992 graduate of Husson and played basketball for Kissy Walker from 1989-90. Bruce MacGregor coached basketball from 1969-94 and golf (1979, 1993-2009) at Husson.
