Age: 17

Class: Senior

Position: Forward

Nickname: None

Interests: Food: Italian TV show: Psych Movie: The Batman series Music group: Taylor Swift Book: The Hunger Games series Class/subject: History Favorite athlete: Robin van Persie Role model: "My dad, Scott." What I'd like to win a lifetime supply of: Donuts Hobby: Volleyball Board game/card game: Poker Web site/video game: FIFA Soccer

Biggest sports thrill: "When my club team won state cup in 2007."

Best advice I've ever received: "After the game have no regrets about what happened during it."

Last week: Farnes scored four goals, including a hat trick in a 7-0 win over Bonneville, as the Darts moved their record to 4-0 with victories over the Lakers and Ogden.

Farnes on his performance: "We had a couple of shaky games but it looks liked we've worked out the kinks and we're ready for the long season. You always want to do better than the season before (when the Darts lost in the first round). We want to win state, of course. We know people are kind of out to get us so we just have to be composed in winning every game."

Coach Souli Phongsavath on Farnes: "He contributed a lot last year but this year he has taken on more of an assertive role as a leader and also with scoring goals. The kids respect him as a player and as a person. What he does really well is finishes which makes us a lot more dangerous."

After high school: "I have a scholarship to Northwest Community College in Wyoming to play soccer."
