Biography

Urayak Monogoyak grew up in the northern community of Barrow, Alaska, the son of a Oil Engineer and a homemaker. He was a stocky youth, and with his boundless energy he excelled in a lot of sports, but it wasn't until his Junior year of high school did b-ball coaches start to take notice, as he grew from his stocky 5'8 to a rather sturdy 6'5. Ura looked to follow in the 'family business', and was accepted into the Geological Sciences program at the University of Anchorage. He played some basketball his Senior year of highschool, but it was mainly working on game basics and team play.

It took several years of working the wolverine through fundamentals, but once he took a real liking to the game, it was nearly impossible to keep him out of the gym, or barring that, the outdoor courts, regardless of the weather. He was either studying, or practicing, leaving time for little else. He grew another few inches through college to his current size, his coach working him after and between classes, almost TRYING to tire him out.

Urayak went on to start his Junior and Senior years, averaging 12 points, and 2 assists. But what he really brought to the game was 2 blocks and a shocking 12 rebounds a game. Ura's jumping ability, snow-show sized paws, and aggressive positioning afforded him lots of boards. He was not the biggest fur on the team, but he was unrelenting, never afraid to get physical or be willing to back down from a larger opponent in his pursuit of the ball. His tireless movements before games, during every minute he was allowed to play, and often after full games, earned his nickname "Marathon". Although it was the running joke among his teammates that "All you Can Eat" might've suited him better from time to time, given his voracious appetite to keep those batteries always at maximum capacity!

He graduated with honors in the Spring of 2012 from the University of Anchorage with a BS in Geological Sciences.

2012-2013 Season

After being ranked #18 on T. Matt Latrans' Top 24 list for the 2012 Draft, Monogoyak beat out expectations when he was selected with the #13 overall pick by the Williamsburg Minutemen. He never played a full season with the club, though, and was traded mid-season to the San Jose Thrust in December of 2012. Furthering his career of short stints, he was traded during the 2013 off-season to the Tennessee Moonshiners where he won a championship ring. In the subsequent off-season, new owners dealt Monogoyak to the Santa Ana Spectrums in a sign-and-trade deal for Eli Schuck.
