Surrounded by his family and teammates on Tuesday afternoon, four-year varsity standout Will Feller signed his National Letter of Intent to play for Graceland University under three-time national champion head coach Craig Doty.
Feller averaged 12.7 points per game and six rebounds per game for Des Moines Lincoln as a senior. Feller’s efforts gained him first team all-CIML Metro honors.
“Will took a very big jump as a senior but most of the growth came off of the basketball court, which is why I think he’s going to be a great fit for Coach Doty and Graceland,” said Lincoln Head Coach Justin Einerson.
“Will’s role was a lot more complex this year as he was one of just two seniors on a team that featured a lot of underclassmen,” continued Einerson. “It is not easy to be a leader. It’s hard to be early, be consistent, be vocal and be a great example at all times. This year, that’s exactly what Will was for us. A great example. I can’t wait to tell our young players about him for years to come.”
Will’s mother Deb Feller is looking forward to seeing Will grow, not only as a basketball player but as a man. “I’m so excited for him, it’s such an exciting time for him. He knew he had to go out there and start every game, he had to be the leader. He went and did that. His growth was just amazing, and it’s still showing.”
