Congrats to the Greens Farms Academy sophomore Henry Holzinger fo being selected as MaxPreps.com Player of the Game.
Holzinger contributed to the Dragons' 58-42 victory in a number of ways.
On defense, he was impressive, taking on Master's returning All FAA point guard, and keeping him and the Master's offense in check.
Holzinger also led all guards in rebounding with six and scored 13 points in a variety of ways.
Well done Henry!
Congratulations to junior guard, Henry Holzinger for being named MaxPreps Player of the Game.
On Wednesday, Holzinger returned to action after being out for a week with a sprained ankle. In that game, against Masters School, he nailed six three pointers.
Two nights later in this game against Capital Prep Harbor School, in front of a packed house, Holzinger dropped in seven threes. That was only one short of the school record for the most threes made in one game. He totaled 23 points for the game.
This was all done while only playing about half of the game's minutes.
Holzinger's hot hand was contagious. Teammate Evan Roteman drained six threes. Mack Muller bombed in two. Kobi Agard, Jack Seegers and Cole Prowitt-Smith also hit the long ball en route to a 87-74 victory.
Well done Henry and his teammates!

Jim Djema is the Dragon's current all time leading three point shooter with 78. Over the past two summer breaks, Holzinger made over 15,000 three point shots in preparation for his winter seasons. He is now reaping an excellent return that on that investment.

Well done, Henry!

Holzinger led all scorers with 27 points, including seven three pointers. He also dished out seven assists.
The Captain led his troops well, as all 12 suited GFA players got in the game to help secure the win. Holzinger was notably flanked by Cole Prowitt-Smith, with 19 points and a game-high eight assists, and Greg Lawrence who was the best big man on the court, with 13 points, 17 rebounds, four blocks and two steals.
In front of a packed house, in the Dragons' impressive 92-71 victory over Redemption Christian Academy (MA), Holzinger broke the Greens Farms Academy school record for most made three point shots in a single game, draining nine of them.
He broke the mark of eight, previously co-held by Hunter Eggers '13 and Pat Ryan '13.
Holzinger continues to add to his record-setting total as the school's All Time Greatest 3 Point Shooter. He attained that status amazingly while only a junior.
Impressive work, Henry!
Co-captain Henry "Old Man" Holzinger rallied his baby-faced squad into playing like veteran warriors in a tremendous performance against the conference's dominant team, Hamden Hall.
In the first meeting between the two teams back in December, Hamden Hall (11-1 FAA) physically over-whelmed the young Dragons, lighting them up with a 26-2 first quarter and a total butt-whipping.
That was not the case in this rematch, GFA passed and cut their way through through the notorious Hornet pressure, maintained a small lead throughout the game until the final couple of minutes where Hamden Hall managed to eke out the 63-60 victory. This was all done without the injured GFA Strong Man, Greg Lawrence being in uniform.
The key for GFA's improved and impressive performance, they frequently passed and moved well enough to free up Holzinger for eight threes and 26 total points. The eight threes was only one shy of Holzinger tying his own single game record.
Henry Holzinger led a 12 man deep win over the Hopkins School 70-51 in the quarter-finals of the FAA tournament.
Holzinger set a personal season high of seven rebounds in the game, putting him second only to Teddy Brown's 10 rebounds. He also scored 20, putting him second only to Cole Prowitt-Smith's 23 points. He also tied Prowitt-Smith for most assists with six.
Holzinger's four made three pointers put him over 100 for the season, further shattering his own school record of 71.
Nice work Henry!
