Jared Printy of Linn-Mar is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.
Printy, a 6-foot-5 senior, is one of the stars for the 10th-ranked Linn-Mar basketball team that will face No. 7 Cedar Falls in the Class 4A substate finals Tuesday night at the U.S. Cellular Center.
Printy poured in 23 points and hit five 3-pointers, both season-highs, when the Lions defeated Waterloo East, 79-63, in the substate semifinals Friday night at Linn-Mar. Printy had made four 3-pointers in five different games this season, but never five in one game for the Lions.
Printy is averaging 13.5 points and has made a healthy 40.2 percent of his 3-pointers, nailing 53 of 132 for the campaign. All five starters for Linn-Mar are a threat from 3-point range, making them a tough team to guard, and the Lions (17-5) lead Class 4A in scoring at 73.9 points per game.
