Farley Heads M&O First Team Selections

Issue Date: April 5, 2018

Coleman's Payton

Nelson Named

M&O Top Defender


The M&O all conference lists are out and topping the list as MVP this season was none other than STAA's Jack Farley.

The St. Thomas boys had a battlle in every game they faced this season, under manned but never outgunned the Cavaliers put the gears to nearly every one in the M&O and much of that had to do with their all-star starter and deadly shooter Jack Farley.

Farley averaged 25.9 points per game which was 1st in conference, and overall1 17th in the state. He had 8.7 rebounds per game while averaging 4.5 assists per game 4th in conference. That probably should have been at least 50% higher if we made some of the easy shots," said STAA head coach Ric Powers.

Farley also had 5.2 steals per game which was 1st in conference and 2nd in state while getting 2.7 blocks per game. He shot 46% from the field in conference, often having to create shots that have a higher level of difficulty.

"He consistently faced heavy defensive attention including the opponents top defensive player," said Powers. "He increased help side defense, and frequent double teams"

"He excelled defensively in various roles," said Powers. The 1st half of the year he was used as an all-purpose defender helping on just about every other player, While the 2nd half of the year he locked down top perimeter players on opposing teams (held Mahoney to 7/25 shooting with all but 2 coming in fast breaks, held Marquardt to 3 points). He had six conference games of 30+ points and scored at least 20 points in all but 3 conference games and at least 17 points in every conference game except 1."

Farley also tacked on 7 double-doubles in 15 conference games and 1 triple-double against Coleman in the game where he surpassed 1000 points.

Farley has kept pretty solid numbers over the years getting 36 points his freshman year, 284 his sophomore year, 443 his junior year and 604 to cap off his senior year.

"Jack made huge strides as a leader this year," said Powers. "With 4 seniors and 5 freshmen, he was going to be playing with 2 to 4 freshmen at some times.  He encouraged them to play well and not worry about making mistakes.  Jack was a gym rat and really worked on his shot and ball handling skills.  I think he was the best ball handler all year.  It made it difficult to put pressure on us full court because even when double or triple teamed, he still got the ball down court.  He had a great ability to get to the basket and create fouls.  You could see his confidence go up year to year.  I think last year, he was worried about some defenders he would go against but this year I don't think he feared anyone.  It was fun to watch him go as far as being a more mature player and person.  It was easy for a coach to be able to have a player you can rely on handle the ball so much and not worry about anyone pressuring us.  His durability was also fantastic.  The last 2 years, Jack played probably more minutes than anyone in the conference.  If not for foul trouble, he was playing.  I'm guessing he play in 99% of the minutes. Jack played hurt and sick in a lot of games this year which shows how tough of a kid he was.  It's going to be a big hole to fill next year because he not only scored but rebounded and played great defense." 

Also on the list of first teamers was Coleman's Cole Woulf.

Woulf amassed 420 total points scored while averaging 17.5 points per game. He had 10.4 rebounds a game while averaging       5.2 assists and 2.9 steals per game.

"What makes Cole one of the top players in this Conference is ability to play against any size player, especially offensively," said Coleman head coach Tim Forner. "Teams will use big post players all the way down to guards to try and stop him. His game is just very well rounded and he can have success vs any type of defender. This season Cole and his teammates came in determined to compete for the top of the M&O Conference. Cole drew a ton of attention this season, and saw double teams and defenses collapse/converge on him, even at the high post spot. Which leads me to mention his ability to score from all over the court. Cole was front and center as a team captain. He lead more by example than words. He has that competitiveness you look for in a player, never backing down from bigger opponents, attacking the rim even when it looks like he could not possibly get there, he always seemed to find a sliver of a gap to slip though going to the hoop."

"I know that frustrated our opponents as times as well. Cole has been great for our program and and instrumental in our team success. I know he will continue to be successful as he moves into the next chapter in life."

Crivitz added two names to the first team list this season with Jakob Voss and Travis Giese.

"Travis is one of the toughest players in the paint," said Crivitz head coach Jeff Baumann. "He always worked hard especially at the boards. When he pulled down rebounds he never gave up and you could see his will to score. His tenactiy under the boards was always awesome. I saw some big imporvements from Travis over the year. One thing I always liked about Travis was his leadership and his ability to rally the troops. But most of all I respectaed Travis' love of the game. He just enjoyed being out there and getting a chance to play the game he loves."

Giese led the way in scoring for the Wolverines this season with 15. 4 points per game with a total of 370 on the season. while Voss followed with 10.3 per game with a 246 point total. Geise got 6.4 rebounds a game while Voss registered 3.5 assists a game and 3.5 rebounds.

"I saw some of the biggest imporvemnts from last year from Jake," said Baumann. "He was a different player this year. He was always extremely helpful with the younger guys. I just loved his team attitude, he never put anyone down and was always there to help correct the younger players. I'd have to say that Jake is one of the top three players I have ever coached."

Joining the list from Suring was none other than Suring's All-time leading scorer Ryan Mahoney.

While playing for the Eagles Mahoney just about did it all. He amassed accoclades along the way as well. Last season he eclipsed the 1,000 point mark, this season he made his way to the top of Suring's historic all-time leading scorers list, which he is now the leader of.

He did this feat by surpassing Chad Strehlow's 2011 scoring mark of 1487 career points with a 29-point burst against the Wausaukee Rangers.

Mahoney ended the season topping Suring's season charts with 23.2 points per game. He also posted 3 assists per game. He had 46 offensive rebounds and 90 defensive. He also ended the season with 99 steals and 15 blocks.

Mahoney's coach Jim Keefe couldn't say enough about Ryan. "Ryan deserves this honor. He has scored consistently ever since he was a freshman," said Keefe. "He has put in the time it takes to become a consistent threat from the perimeter. Over these years we have worked on his game in terms of attack the rim which he has done much better this year than he has in the past. I always knew he had this "spidey sense' as far as where the ball is going and when it will be there. I always liked how he can conserve his energy and then strike. He has been in the gym at 6:30 every morning shooting with teammate Mitch Stegeman He is just such a hard worker with so many goals, one of which is to play ball in Ripon. I know he will contribute there. Its been a joy to coach him."
