Off the field, he may seem nice... he may sound friendly..., Shamel Ilya otherwise commonly known as Sham could be the nicest guy around. On the field, this man is a terrorist... I mean terror. A member of the Contract Killers, Sham was awarded the SPNS 2009 Leg 2 Most Valuable Player (MVP). The MVP award is a recognition given to an individual by the local paintball community after each leg of the SPNS. The winner is recognized by for his/her display of good sportsmanship on and off the field and a true ambassador of the sport.
Sham has played competitive paintball for about a year and plays as a front/mid player for the Contract Killers. With his team, Sham has won the 1st runners up position and the 2nd runners up position in leg 1 and leg 2 of the SPNS 2009 respectively. This recognition came timely as his team prepares themselves for the World Cup Asia 2009 in November. Playing with the Red Dynasty Boys in My-NPL Leg 2, he also won the 1st runners up position in the Division 4 category.
In my opinion, Sham is one of the upcoming and promising player in Singapore. He has lots of potential and is a fast learner, his attitude in listening and learning always gives him an edge over the rest. Always ready to fill up the bunkers, Sham is an exciting player to watch.
