Cade Goggleye put himself on the map with a strong state tournament performance as a sophomore and has been the focal point for Class A powerhouse North Woods for several seasons. He spent the summer playing grassroots with Comets Kirchner and, as he’s done throughout his career, enjoyed a lot of success.
“The season went pretty well,” Goggleye said of the summer. “The team had a very good record and I’m happy with how much we grew together.”
Goggleye is oftentimes, by far, the best player on the court during the high school season and he puts up eye-popping numbers while leading his team to a lot of wins. The AAU season can offer stiffer competition and a new set of challenges. Goggleye said those challenges were good for his growth.
“It’s important to play against some good competition in AAU,” said Goggleye. “You find out what you need to work on to be better for the season and that’s exactly what I did.”
A terrific shooter and distributor with savvy defensive instincts, Goggleye said the are of his game he’s working on improving the most is being able to score off the dribble and create his own shot against bigger or more athletic defenders.
“I’ve been working on my pull up jumper, step backs and different balance schemes a lot this summer and it’s coming along pretty good,” Goggleye said. “Just a few things I need to work on still.”
The to-be senior guard has drawn a lot of interest from a number of local colleges.
“St. Johns has shown the most interest with Bethany [Lutheran], Augsburg and St. Scholastica not too far behind in interest,” said Goggleye. “I’ve got to schedule some visits most likely to happen in August.”
