AS A youngster coming up through the grades at Ipswich Grammar, Jarred Hancock always dreamed of the day that his name would appear up on one of the honour boards in the Great Hall.

While he might have hoped it would be for some great sporting achievement, the Year 11 student has probably gone one better by becoming the 150th captain of that illustrious institution.

Jarred went through the selection process in the latter part of this year, but will assume the role when he begins his final year of secondary schooling in 2013.

Sean Adcock was named the Grammar's vice-captain.

"It's a big honour and I am very proud," Jarred said.

"It is going to be a great year and I am already looking forward to it."
