Holy Trinity’s Dec. 19 boys basketball game against Space Coast figures to be a very special night for senior guard Keoni Wallington.

At halftime, Wallington will be honored as just the fourth player in program history to have scored 1,000 career points. The achievement came Dec. 5 in a game against Astronaut High.

The previous three members of the 1,000-point club – Jason Powell (who went on to play at Embry-Riddle), Marcus Maye (football at the University of Florida) and Jace Hogan (Naval Academy) – all have their names listed on a banner that hangs in the Holy Trinity gym.

Wallington’s name will soon be added to that list to be seen by all who come to watch the Tigers’ basketball program in action.

“It’s what I’ve been aiming for,” Wallington said. “I wanted to be on that wall for 1,000 (points). I’ve been working hard, putting in the work, and it’s been showing on the court.”
