Back: It’s the word that has defined Brian Farrell’s 2011-2012 season with the Hillbilly basketball team. Because of a back injury, he missed the first few weeks of games. Now, however, he has returned to the lineup, and boy oh boy is he back.

This past week against Livingston, Nutley, Columbia and Golda Och Academy, Farrell scored 65 points, with nine 3 pointers. Farrell put up 12 points in the most recent 44-33 Verona victory against Golda Och, which seems almost like slacking when you compare it to the 23 points he scored against Columbia on February 4, the 21 points he scored on Nutley and the 26 points he got in the 58-44 win over Montclair Immaculate. In the 12 games he has played this season, Farrell has piled up 169 points and hauled down 23 rebounds. For this, Brian Farrell is this week’s Verona Sports Boosters Senior Athlete of the Week.

When not dressed in maroon and white, Farrell plays for the highly competitive NJ Crusaders AAU basketball team. He is being recruited to play basketball by Drew University, the University of Scranton,
Ithaca College, Hartwick College, Connecticut College, and Randolph-Macon University, where Verona High School graduate Tim Lawrence is an assistant coach.  In the spring, Farrell will trade basketball sneakers–briefly–for tennis sneakers. As a sophomore, he was part of a doubles team that clinched a key match in Verona’s state sectionals victory.

During the 2011-2012 school year, the Verona Sports Boosters will be recognizing a different senior athlete at Verona High School every week. The Boosters support male and female athletes in all VHS sports through a variety of fundraisers and recognition events.
