Josh Kashila

Waxahachie, Texas – June 1, 2017 – The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball team is adding two new guards to the pride.  Euless Trinity’s Josh Kashila and San Antonio’s Cody Farmer are the newest members of the 2017-18 recruiting class.

Josh Kashila , a 6’3 guard, averaged 13 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals per game this past season.  He was a First Team All-District 5-6A selection and helped lead his team to 17-13 overall record.  He shot 48% overall and 33% from the 3-point line.

Nicknamed “Kash”, Kashila moved from Angola, Africa with his younger brother as a freshman.  He quickly picked up the game of basketball and considers achieving this opportunity as a lifetime accomplishment.

“In many ways I see the recruitment of Josh a God thing.  Our team was blessed to visit Angola and play their top two professional teams two years ago.  It was not until his campus visit that I found out that Josh was Angolan.  I’m very excited about the talents and overall character he brings to our program.  Josh is a versatile player who can play the 1-3 position and is a good athlete as well,” explains SAGU Head Coach Donnie Bostwick.

Cody Farmer

Joining Kashila this upcoming season is Cody Farmer , a 6’1 shooting guard from O’Connor High School in San Antonio.  The First Team All-District 27-6A selection was chosen recently to participate in San Antonio Area Basketball Coaches All-Star game.  Farmer averaged 14 points, four rebounds and two assists per game this past season.  He was one of the top 3-point shooters in the state hitting 82 of 224 attempts and shooting an impressive 37% from long range.  The sharpshooter also shot 87% from the free throw line and led his team in charges taken.

“We’re excited to add Cody to our program.  He is one of the better shooters in the state, has a very high basketball IQ and I like his toughness,” says Bostwick, “He will need to get stronger, as most freshman do, but I really am impressed with his desire to be more than a one dimensional player. Both Cody and Josh have not only played in strong districts, but have succeeded at a very high level of high school basketball. I believe this success will transfer to success as a Lion over the next four seasons.”

Kashila and Farmer will be joining two other new Lions already announced for the upcoming season; Everman’s Jonathan Jackson and Arlington Martin’s Jalen Petillo .

SAGU men’s basketball went 24-10 overall, finished second in the Sooner Athletic Conference and made it to the second round of the NAIA National Championship tournament.
