Hampton rewarded with Club Person of the Year

Any North Queensland Toyota Cowboys fan who has seen Ben Hampton play knows he will do everything in his power to help his team win – off the field Hampton just as passionate.

The proud Mareeba boy was tonight named 2019 Club Person of the Year at the Cowboys Presentation Night at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre.

After a ruptured bicep in Round 10 ruled him out for the rest of the season, Hampton immersed himself in off-field commitments.

The 27-year-old voluntarily flew to Herberton to take part in a Cowboys Resilience Project visit alongside Cowboys Community Engagement Officer Ray Thompson.

Upon returning to Townsville he visited Riverside Adventist School on his own to address and assembly on the Resilience Project.

Hampton also partook in six additional Cowboys Adopt A School visits, three Try for 5 visits and travelled to Sarina for a North Queensland Bulk Ports appearance.

On top of his official appearances, Hampton is renowned at the Cowboys for his willingness to lend a hand to anyone in need.

On the field, Hampton’s selflessness has endeared him to his teammates.

The versatile speedster has put his hand up to play any position, including all five backline spots, required by Cowboys head coach Paul Green since arriving at the club in 2017.
