It has been a season of highs and lows for St. Cloud Cathedral big man Conor Voss. The 7 foot center on the Crusaders boys basketball team is closing the season out strong however, and has earned this week's nod as Metro Sports Commission Player of the Week.
The elation Voss felt at being able to play his senior season, a year removed from serious knee injuries, soured mid-way through his final campaign as he again went down to injury. He had worked to shape his game and, prior to his setback, had become a key cog on both ends of the floor for the Crusaders.
Working back from the January injury came slow to Voss, but his hard work payed off in a big way this week in Cathedral's first round play-off win over Spectrum, a game heard on the Metro Sports Commission.
Voss set the tone through the early stages of the game, blocking shots and clogging up the paint on defense. On offense he finished with 11 points, none more dramatic than the opening bucket of the game. After winning the tip, Voss sailed down the right side of the lane and dunked home a perfect lob pass from the opposite wing, an emphatic entrance for the Crusaders into the 5AA playoffs.
Next fall Voss will head to the Ivy League where he is committed to play for Columbia. But for now it is all about the run for he and his Crusader teammates. Congratulations to Conor Voss, this week's Metro Sports Commission Player of the Week.
Congratulations Conor Voss on being the All Star Trophy and Awards Player of the Week!
