Over the next couple of weeks, PHD will do a “Get To Know Him” series with several players across South Dakota. At the end of the week, we will roll out a questionnaire to test your knowledge and learn facts about some of the players around South Dakota.

What’s His Name?

Mitchell Goodbary

Where Is He From?

Goodbary is from Sioux Falls and goes to Sioux Falls Christian. 

A Few Fun Facts About Goodbary

  • Just like in basketball he is a force to be reckoned with on the football team as well.
  • He wears the No. 22 because that’s what his dad wore.
  • Goodbary doesn’t have a favorite athlete, he just loves watching sports in general.

Where Have You Heard of Him?

Goodbary has been apart of some of the great Chargers teams that have gone undefeated in the regular season. Last season he averaged 12.6 points on 54 percent shooting. He was apart of a starting lineup that all averaged about the same points, so it was tough to game plan against them because you couldn’t target one or even two people. He averaged just over 7 boards, 2.4 assists, and 1.5 steals a game. He helped lead his team to an undefeated regular season and a third-place finish at state.
