Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #26 Jonah Brillowsky

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 boys. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Jonah Brillowsky, junior, Ferndale

WHY HE’S #26: One of the Northwest Conference’s most improved players, Brillowsky went from being on JV last season to one of the league’s top big men by season’s end. The 6-foot-4 forward could score inside and from the 3-point line, averaging 13 points a game. He also was a force on defense pulling down 8 rebounds and collecting 1.5 blocks a game.

COACH LUKE DuCHESNE: “Jonah improved a lot this season and became a big part of the Golden Eagles team. He began to make his presence known on the defensive end with his physicality and rim protection. He was among the best in the county in blocked shots and rebounding, and he grabbed quite a few important offensive rebounds and putbacks for us. His 3-point shooting really spread his game out, and he became a difficult match-up for opposing teams. He will be quite a force his senior year.”
