Special thanks to the Fayette County Guru for updating the Boys 2,000 point scoring list.  He also  added where they went to college at.   If anyone has additional information, please email it to: pahoops@verizon.net

--T. J. McConnell became the 25th player in WPIAL history to score 2,000 career points. In the fourth quarter, he also became Chartiers Valley's all-time leading scorer, breaking the mark of Mike Colbert, who had 2,022 points. McConnell has 2,030.

*A.J. Nastasi holds the records for:
-Pennsylvania Freshman Scoring Record-832 points (28 games) 
-Pennsylvania Sophomore. Scoring Record-984 points (30 Games) 

A.J. Nastasi and brother Joe Nastasi, neither ever scored less than 10 in a game all four years of varsity

* Ron Krick missed 12 games during his career because of injuries.  He dislocated his shoulder on Christmas eve of his senior year.  At that point, he had averaged 42 points per game. He missed six games and then returned to play with his right arm in a brace and a chain to keep it in place.  When he returned to action on January 31, he used only his left arm and scored 26.  He played the remainder of the season injured and scored 37 in the state championship game.

Note 2: Caleb Greene, Bloomsburg Christian School had 2,097 points in 104 games from 2000-06. He also scored 246 additional points while playing varsity ball as a seventh grader and an eighth grader. (Credit: Scott Dudinskie, Bloomsburg Press Enterprise)
Note 3: Dear wgaffey, I remember officiating a PIAA game back in the late 70's, when a boy by the name of Bobby Zipko received a game ball for scoring 2000pts. The same night another guy(from the home team) was awarded a game ball for scoring 1000 points. The Zipko boy played for G.A.R. High School in Wilkes Barre. Hope I helped in your keeping up with the 2000 point club. John Kashatus

 POINTS CLUB

 GIRLS' RECORDS

 BACK TO TOP
 


Greg Procell of Noble Ebard (La) holds the national high school record with 6,702 points. (They played 70 to 80 games a year at that time-now there is limit on games in that state). He later played for Northwestern State in Natchitoches, La. and later became a professional fisherman on the Bassmasters circuit in La. and Texas. Greg scored 100 points in a high school game in 1970. His teammate, Walter Meshell scored the other 39 points in a 139-79 victory over Elizabeth High School. He averaged 46 points a game, a record that stood until 1982 when a kid named Bobby Joe Douglas AVERAGED 54.0 points a game for tiny Marion High School in Northern Louisiana. (Source credit: Douglas-emjack@eatel.net


Terrelle Pryor - Jeannette -  became a member of the 2,000 Point club on Saturday January 26, 2008. In that same game he eclipsed 1,000 rebounds for his career as well. In addition he is the first WPIAL and maybe PIAA player with 4,000+ yards rushing and 4,000+ yards passing in football.
