NJP has established a new feature called “Quick Set” where we ask NJ’s best high school volleyball players a quick set of questions and feature the answers daily on the site. Congratulations to the players selected and we appreciate the time taken to jump in and share their thoughts. (Players: Watch your IG messages for future invites) The questions will change throughout the season and we expect some players will repeat as being a part of this content in the future. Let’s applaud these role models for representing NJ’s best!

Jack Farah is a senior outside hitter for St. John Vianney. He burst onto the volleyball scene as a sophomore and posted 150+ kills as a soph and junior. He has dominated on both sides of the ball contributing over 130 digs in the previous two season as well. NJP expects big contributions in his final high school year.
Tell us about your team this season.
We have high expectations for this season within our team, as we are an older team, so this is the year to make a run for the big prize. The path won’t be easy, but with applied discipline and hard work, we are aiming for a state championship. Our coaches have been striving for this opportunity for the past four years, and won’t settle for anything less, which gives us players more fight to finish the job.
What big games are you looking forward to playing in this season?
I am really looking forward to our quad match against Monroe, Freehold Borough, and Howell at home. Three solid teams, not just in the Shore Conference, but a taste of the GMC as well.
Which schools are your biggest league rivals?
I would have to say Freehold Borough, knowing each time we go up against them its a tight game, which is why I’m also looking forward to the quad against them this year.
Tell us about your opening game of the season!
We opened up with a double header against a divisional opponent in Keyport, and we handled our matchup well, winning all sets.
What’s the best part of being on your school’s volleyball team?
The best part is carrying over the winning tradition my school’s team has had over the years, building upon their success. Our bond as a team has also grown greatly throughout the years, and our relationship with our coaches make the practices and games more enjoyable than they already are.
