First Team Player Biographies
Mike Marra- Smithfield
One of the most exciting players in the Interscholastic League this past season, Marra averaged 22.1 points 
and 11 rebounds per game. He shattered Smithfield's school record for 3-pointers by 50 by knocking 
down 111 3-pointers. He was Smithfield's go-to-player when the Sentinels needed points in clutch 
situations, but he was also unselfish with the basketball. Marra averaged seven assists per game and shot 
73 percent from the foul line. Marra led Smithfield to a 14-7 record. He scored 37 points in the 
quarterfinals of the playoffs and 27 points in Smithfield's semifinal 70-58 loss to Hope. He was a first-team 
All-Division selection and was a member of the Division I All-Tournament team.
Jeremi Hall- Hope
Hall led Hope to a 12-6 record in the toughest division in the state, Division I-East, by averaging 16 points 
and 8 rebounds per game. Hall possesses the ability to create his own shot, drive to the hoop, and post up
 down low, which made him one of the most dangerous all-around players in the state. The first-team 
All-Division selection upped his scoring average to 21.8 points per game in the playoffs by scoring 24 
points with 18 rebounds in the opening round of the playoffs, 25 points in the quarterfinals, 18 points in the 
semis, and 20 in the finals. He was Hope's MVP of the state tournament.
Antone Gray- St. Raphael
With exceptional speed and athleticism, Gray was one of Division I's most prolific scorers. He averaged 
22.1 points per game. He knocked down 46 percent of his shots from the field and 35 percent of his 
shots from behind the arc. As good a scorer as he was, Gray was also unselfish with the basketball. He 
averaged 5.7 assists per game and 2.8 steals while shooting 76 percent from the free-throw line. His efforts 
helped St. Raphael win the Division I-North regular-season title and he led the Saints all the way to the 
semifinals of the playoffs. He was also named first team All-Division and was a member of the Division I 
All-Tournament team.
David Rufful- Hendricken
As one of the state's most dominant big men for the last two seasons, Rufful was the only player this year
to be selected first team All-State two years in a row. After averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds last 
year, Rufful was good for 19 points and 12 rebounds per game this year. He helped lead Hendricken to 
its fourth straight Division I state championship by scoring 20 points in Hendricken's 75-48 state title 
victory over Hope. Rufful, a first- team All-Division selection and Hendricken's MVP of the finals, was a 
force on both ends of the floor.
Jerell Gomes- Feinstein
As the most feared player in Division II by opposing teams, Gomes, a second-team All-State selection 
last season, is making his first first-team All-State appearance this season. On a Feinstein team that 
featured five players who each averaged double-digits in scoring, Gomes led the way with 19 points 
and 6 rebounds per game. Gomes, who scored 16 points in Feinstein's 82-53 victory over Rogers for 
the Division II state championship, was named the Falcons' Most Valuable Player of the game. Gomes 
put up similar numbers last year to help lead the Falcons to the Division III state title.
