Congratulations Hunter Lane On 1000 Points!

[Tonight senior basketball player Hunter Lane joined an elite group of athletes who have scored 1000 points in their high school career in Georgetown. This is only the 7th time in the school’s history that this feat  has been accomplished and Hunter’s name will proudly be added to the banner that hangs in the gym for all to see now and in the future.  I think the most remarkable thing about Hunter is that he is not only a talented basketball player but he is one of the most hard-working, team oriented and humble players on the team. He is a role model for commitment to the sport, dedication to teamwork, unselfish play and sportsmanship. As a result, he has earned the respect of the coaches, players, parents  and anyone else who has had the privilege of watching him play. I thought it was interesting but not surprising that as Hunter was approaching achieving this milestone, his play did not change. He did not change his game and continued to be the player who is focused on the success of his team first  and not on himself. We all knew Hunter would achieve this goal at some point in the season but he did it in the same humble and unselfish way he has played throughout his successful high school career and he is not done yet. Hunter and his team have three games remaining and I am sure he will add to his total point count before his name is proudly displayed on that prestigious banner in the gym.  I want to personally congratulate Hunter and his family on achieving this milestone. It is clearly reserved for special players who make Georgetown proud and Hunter Lane deserves to be recognized in this elite group of seven 1000 point scorers. He is a fun player to watch and a fine young man and I know he will be successful in whatever he decides to do in his life beyond high school.  Way to go Hunter! We are so very proud of you!
