While there have been plenty of players making a name for themselves this spring, one of the biggest breakout performers has been Ty Fernholz. The guard is a part of a talented Wisconsin Blizzard team that also includes Will Hornseth, Brady Corso, Pierce Arenz and others. 

Fernholz had an impressive sophomore season at Stoughton High School where he led his team in scoring with 20 points per game along with 4.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists to earn himself All-State honorable mention honors. 

The 6’2” guard has continued the high level of play this spring with the Wisconsin Blizzard. He was named First Team All Underclassmen at the Grassroots Showcase Tournament in Louisville. “So far the spring with the Blizzard has been very fun. We compete hard and play basketball the right way,” Fernholz said.

“My game I feel is kind of old school,” Fernholz said to describe his style of play. “I’m not the fastest or most athletic guard but I use my strength to post up and use my IQ to make plays on and off the ball. I think my IQ is what gives me a step ahead of others. Not to mention I can shoot the ball well.” Over the course of his sophomore season, Fernholz shot 40.6% from three. 

“That I’m a team player and that family and friends are very important to me. I’m an easy-going guy that’s very relaxed and poised with pressure,” is what Fernholz would like college coaches to know about him. Not only does the combo guard excel on the floor but also in the classroom. Fernholz should be a popular name amongst high academic scholarship level college coaches in the future.
