By Colten Hagadus

 

In the first game of the season, Jack Reichenbach achieved a milestone that not many other high school basketball players can say that they achieved. Reichenbach becomes the first player at Salisbury to score 1000 points since Lindsay Bauer did a few years ago. In an interview with Todd Kress, Reichenbach stated, “I knew I needed 13, and I just wanted to get in the flow of the offense.” His total 1009 points included his freshman year at Notre Dame where he scored 279. “It’s something that no one in my family has done, which is really cool,” said Reichenbach. He becomes the first male at Salisbury to achieve the accomplishment since Geoff Hoffman in 2001. Also, he is the first player ever to score 1000 under head coach Jason Weaver.
