CULVER – For only the second time in Culver Academy basketball program history, a sophomore has been selected to participate in the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association/Indiana High School Athletic Association Top 100 workout. Cooper Farrall joins Trey Galloway as Eagles to receive this honor this early in their high school career.
The event gives Farrall the opportunity to play live in front of college coaches for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the committee that selects All-State and Indiana All-Star honors. The event will take place at Ben Davis High School on June 19.
“In my 19-year coaching career, only three sophomores have ever been selected for the Top 100,” said Academt head coach Mark Galloway. ”We are incredibly proud of Cooper, and are excited for him to show what he can do on such a large stage.”
A 6-foot-5 guard from Valparaiso, Farrall started for the Eagles this year in what was a severely truncated season. Current circumstances allowed Galloway’s squad to only play 11 games in their 2020-21 campaign, their IHSAA Class 4A debut. Despite the limited opportunities, Farrall managed to impress. He led the Eagles in scoring and in the last three games of the season he scored 21, 28, and 25 points against Hamtramck, Michigan City, and Loyola, respectively.
“I am honored by this selection,” said Farrall of the opportunity. “I am excited to represent CMA Basketball and compete against the best competition in the state of Indiana!”
