DECADE’S MULTI-SPORT ATHLETES: #3 AIDEN FERRARA

The Top 10 multi-sport athletes of the past decade.

By Robert Balajadia

With high school sports officially wrapped up for 2020, we’ve decided to count down the top 10 male and female multi-sport high school athletes of the past decade (2010-2020). This list centers around athletes who were not only dominant in one sport, but were multi-faceted stars every time they took the field/court.

Following the direction of a list created by GSPN’s Patrick Lujan four years ago on the best multi-sport athletes ever on Guam, ‘like sports’ (like cross country and track & field) will be ranked the same.

We continue the countdown with boys #3 Aiden Ferrara of the 2016 Okkodo Bulldogs.

Not many took off like Aiden Ferrara did in high school volleyball over the past decade and the two-time champion and one-year MVP was hard to stop. With his height and leaping ability, Ferrara would put kills away like not many could and his play in each of the two Championship Games was a sight to see.

Aiden’s play on the football field was consistent, earning him a spot as one of the best receivers ever in the young history of the Okkodo Bulldogs (established in 2009). Aiden was a two-time 1st team All-Island selection, earning a spot as a football All-Star as well.

Ferrara was a large part of the Bulldog basketball team after climbing to the final four on two different occasions. Ferrara led the team in scoring while securing back-to-back selections as a 1st Team Forward.

Aiden also spent time playing soccer to complete a four-year athletic term earning three All-Island 2nd Team selections.

Ferrara’s high school accolades

Volleyball – 2x Champion, 1x MVP, 3x 1st Team All-Island
Basketball – 2x 1st Team All-Island, x1 MVP All-Island Basketball Tournament
Football – 2x 1st Team All-Island
Soccer – 3x All-Island 2nd Team

Ferrara’s reaction to making the list

“It’s a honor! Playing sports throughout my life instilled teamwork, discipline and definitely kept me out of trouble. My high school career was very memorable. I hope the future generations of athletes seek success and always remember to have fun while playing the sport they love.”
