Hitting the milestone of 1,000 career points in high school is something that should not be taken lightly.
Reaching this level takes a lot of discipline and the skills to score the rock consistently.
I reached out to a few players to get their thoughts on moving into a different plateau of a high school baller.
Newest Members of the 1,000 Point Club
Logan Feltman is a 6-foot-10 Big man playing with Winfield High. He is currently averaging 20 points while grabbing 10 rebounds per game. Feltman does a great job finishing at the rim with his smooth touch. He’s a solid shooter and aggressive rebounder.
