Four Fort Myers High School senior athletes were honored today for setting numerous school records.
Basketball player Mark Matthews and football players Dylan DeGroot, Terrance Moore and James Brunson each received trophies from Scott Hills, director of scouting for National Scouting Report of south Florida.
Matthews, a University of North Carolina-Wilmington signee, broke the Green Wave’s career scoring record of 1,530 points, held by current Palm Beach Atlantic senior Evin Graham.
Matthews has 1,864 career points entering his next game at 7 p.m. Friday at Mariner High School.
“He’s just a heckuva an offensive player. He’s a very good scorer, a very good offensive rebounder, and a really good passer, too. He’s always been very good offensively.”
Quarterback DeGroot set the single-season career passing record with 1,930 yards.
Wide receiver Brunson set the single-season receiving record with 765 yards.
Running back Moore set a record with 16 consecutive 100-yard rushing performances, an effort that began midway through his junior season.
Moore also set the single-season rushing record with 1,430 yards.
“It was a pretty cool,” DeGroot said.
“It was awesome,” DeGroot said. “It’s special what all three of us have been able to accomplish, all in the same class.”
DeGroot said the individual accolades also reflected the efforts made by their teammates, who finished with a 12-1 record following a 10-0 regular season.
“I love that,” DeGroot said. “I can’t even put it into words. It’s just a great feeling that we did what we wanted to do and we accomplished some of our goals.”
