Rumson-Fair Haven Looking to Turn up Defense at Boardwalk Showcase


Rumson Regional takes on a highly accredited Gill St. Bernards team this Saturday in the Boardwalk Showcase. However, Rumson is no pushover themselves, despite what their record might say. The Bulldogs are led by senior guard Brendan Barry. Barry comes into this event as one of the more talented players, and quite possibly the best scorer. He is known as a lethal shooter, especially from beyond the arc. He is also an impact player on the defensive side of the ball due to his great awareness and quickness.

Barry told that he is excited to play in the Boardwalk Showcase, an event he is no stranger to. He set the event record for points scored last year with 34 against Point Beach.

We expect nothing less than another great performance from Barry, as he said he has been working over the offseason, focusing mainly on the physical aspects of his game. Barry’s strict workout¬†and dieting routines are what allow him to be a dangerous combination of height, length and speed.

Like so many players in this showcase, Barry has his eyes set on winning the Shore Conference. However, he also feels this team is capable of much more, as he told us that he wants to win the state title as well. Moreover, Barry feels his team’s success is very much dependent on their ability to play solid team defense. We will certainly see how this ideology pans out on Saturday against a Gill St. Bernards team with an explosive offense.
