Paul Mulcahy Raises Play and Leadership This Season

Class of 2019 guard Paul Mulcahy has emerged into being one of the top prospects in New Jersey. The Gill St. Bernard’s product has taken a leadership role this season and has been successful with it as his team is 18-4 through this season. Mulcahy has enjoyed this new role of his.

“Last year as a sophomore I had to lead more by example, but as a junior I’ve definitely been forced to lead vocally on both ends of the floor,” he said. “Being a leader is something I take a lot of pride in and I think I’ve done a really good job this year.”

Mulcahy and his team have their eyes on one goal and that is the New Jersey Tournament of Champions.

“I want to win it this year for our six seniors and our school,” he said. “Gill St. Bernard’s has never won a state championship before so why not now. I think as a team we have made great progress this year and are playing our best basketball this season. Our schedule has been no joke so I think it will prepare us down the line.”

The state of New Jersey has some of the best talent throughout country. The Gill St. Bernard’s product takes pride in being from the Garden State.

“Basketball needs New Jersey,” Mulcahy said. “I think what makes New Jersey great is the fact that you don’t need to travel far to play great competition. Everybody knows everybody so people play with a lot of pride and competitiveness. I would put NJ players up against any other state in the country.”

Marquette, Xavier, Rutgers, Temple, Boston College, Saint Joseph’s, Seton Hall and Northwestern have been in to see Mulcahy recently. These schools are primarily the ones recruiting him the hardest. He isn’t rushing the process and is learning a lot about each of the schools on him.

“I think it’s great, I’ve gotten to meet a lot of great people and have learned so much about the different areas and schools,” said Mulcahy. “I’m really grateful to be where I am and thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given.”
