First Team Player Biographies
Jake Grimes- St. Raphael
As St. Raphael's biggest scoring threat, Grimes faced double- teams all season, but that didn't matter. 
He still averaged 23 points per game, shot 48 percent from the field and 34 percent from behind the 
arc to lead the Saints to a 14-4 regular-season record and the Division I-North title. Scoring was just 
part of his game. The all-around player and great floor leader also averaged 7.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists 
and 1.7 steals. He led the Saints to the semifinals of the playoffs, where they fell, 55-51, to Cranston West.
Joe Mazzulla- Hendricken
As the Interscholastic League's best player for the second consecutive season, all of Hendricken's 
opponents tried to shut down Mazzulla but nobody found a way. He led Division I in scoring, averaging 
24 points a game. He also averaged 12 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals to lead Hendricken to a perfect 
record (21-0). In the state finals, Mazzulla, who has great court vision and is a tenacious defender, scored 
39 points to lead Hendricken to its third consecutive state championship. He scored the winning basket 
with 5.5 seconds left in a 71-69 victory over Cranston West. Mazzulla will play for the University of 
West Virginia next season.
David Rufful- Hendricken
Rufful averaged 17 points and 10 rebounds per game to help Hendricken become only the third team in 
Interscholastic League history to win three Division I state championships in a row. In the playoffs, 
Rufful upped his scoring average to 22.5 points. He scored 10 points in the Division I championship game 
to help lead Hendricken to a 71-69 triumph over Cranston West. The versatile and athletic 6-foot-4 
forward also helped Hendricken capture the Division I-South regular-season title.
Ryan Thompson- Cranston West
A phenomenal center who has a tenacious approach to rebounding and shot-blocking, Thompson 
dominated Cranston West's opponents both offensively and defensively this season. The 6-foot-5 center 
battled a wrist injury nearly the entire season but still managed to average 12 points, 11 rebounds and 6 
blocks per game. He led the Falcons to a 14-4 regular-season record and the Division I-Central regular 
season championship. In the playoffs, Thompson upped his scoring average to 17 points per game and 
led the Falcons to the state championship game, where he scored 19 points in a 71-69 loss to Bishop 
Calvin Jones- LaSalle
An athletic guard who is comfortable shooting the three and driving to the basket, Jones led La Salle to a 
12-8 record and the Division I-East regular-season championship by averaging 19.4 points, 4.8 assists and 
4.2 rebounds per game. After powering La Salle to 59-55 triumph over Classical in the opening round of 
the playoffs, Jones scored 17 points in a loss to Central in the Division I quarterfinals.
