Treynor has been one of 2A’s best programs since our site’s inception in 2014; mostly because it never seems to rebuild, but always reloads.
This season is no different, and it’s been junior guard Dillon Faubel that has taken the reins as the scoring leader.
The junior is averaging 18.7 points per game this season while leading the Cardinals to a 6-3 start. H’e hoping that the fast start to his season can help spark his recruitment.
“I have gotten a couple camp invites from a couple of schools but I can’t really remember which ones they were, I think they were small Iowa schools around here,” said Faubel.
“I just hope (recruitment) really starts coming together. My first two years I played a much different role than what I do now, and as I’ve gotten bigger it’s helped a lot and I think I can start setting myself up for more recruitment.”
The 5-foot-10 guard averaged just 6.0 points per game last season as a 3-point specialist for the Cardinals. This season his role is much-increased.
“Offensively, the biggest thing is I like to attack the basket, and either create for others or get deep in the lane and get fouled. My best part of my game is probably my shooting, and I got out to a rough start this season with that, but I’ve started to straighten that out a little bit,” said Faubel.
“I’d like to get up to 20 points a game and try and lead the team in rebounding, because that’s kind of our weak spot right now.”
Faubel says his increased role was expected from him and his teammates — he’s embraced the role.
“It’s kind of what was expected,” he said. “We lost three seniors that were big players for us, and I kind of had to take that scoring role for the team.”
