Ready High School senior boys basketball player Brady Thomas reached the 1,000-point mark for his prep career during a 65-59 overtime win over Hartley on Jan. 26.

Thomas scored 15 points in the game and has exactly 1,000 for the Silver Knights, who improved to 14-1 overall and 5-0 in the CCL.

“It’s unreal,” said Thomas, a 5-foot-10 guard who averages 17 points. “To see all the hard work and dedication pay off is something else. Being a part of such a prestigious club and to be named among some of the greats in Bishop Ready history is a blessing in itself. None of my success would be possible without the support of my teammates and coaching staff. I’d also like to thank my parents and family for constantly pushing me to be the best version of myself.”

Ready was ranked first in last week’s Division III state poll.
