The fact that with 1:24 left in the third quarter, Pioneer Isaiah Grayson made a two-point basket from inside against double coverage doesn’t sound like a lead paragraph.
The fact it was his 1,001st career point does.
Grayson has been a scoring machine for Warren County High School, routinely being the team’s top scorer and an excellent threat on the fast break. A real team player, his performance up court and down is a relentless pursuit of perfection, according to his coach.
“Isaiah is a quality young man who has shown tremendous progression over his first three years in the program,” said Warren County coach Chris Sullens. “He started as a freshman because of his defensive abilities, and how hard he worked on the floor each possession. Every year he has improved his skill set.”
Basketball isn’t the only sport Grayson plays. He’s the starting QB for the football team, which has its season end with the start of basketball, giving Grayson an entire one-day break. He is also a referee for the Little Pioneer League at Warren County Middle School where he’s often found on Saturday. Somewhere in between, he manages to maintain his studies in school. By all accounts, Grayson already has a degree in time-management.
Grayson still has a year left at the high school being a junior currently.
“He is also a tremendous young man in this community and in the classroom,” continued Sullens. “He is a teammate that leads by example and has helped make the Pioneer basketball program better. I think he has potential to score between 1,500 and 1,600 points before his career ends at Warren County and think he will continue his playing career at the next level.”
