Cardinal Spellman senior Joe Glynn scored his 1,000th career point in a win 64-35 win over Bishop Fenwick Wednesday night in Brockton.
Only nine points shy entering the game, Glynn reached the milestone five minutes into the first quarter. In honor of his achievement, the game was put on hold and Glynn was presented the game ball and took pictures with his parents.
“It was a really special moment for him,” said coach Mike Perry. “You have to know Joey, he has zero for an ego and is one of the easiest kids to coach. He’s the whole package.”
Glynn has been on the varsity since he was a freshman and has been a starter since his sophomore year. This 6-foot-5-inch center/forward is one of the fastest players on the team and last season averaged 21 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.
Glynn is not only a basketball player but also a football player, and a member of the National Honor Society.
“He is very well-rounded. It’s been absolutely wonderful coaching him. He’s been a great teammate too and his teammates have a lot of respect for him. He shows up for practice every day, works hard, and leads by example. I’m the lucky one,” said coach Perry.
According to Perry, a number of colleges, including WPI, Stonehill, Annapolis, and St. Anselm’s have inquiring about Glynn.
