Jeremiah Murphy, Queen’s Grant Stallions joins 1000 point club!

The senior power and shooting forward for the Queen’s Grant Stallions reached a career milestone when he scored his 1000th career point in the first period of Friday nights win over the Lions from Langtree Charter Academy. Murphy was selected last season to the PAC-7 All-Conference team and is clearly on his way for a repeat selection this year.

The 6’5″ talented player is having another outstanding season averaging over 22 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks per game. He is shooting 53% from the floor and 79% from the free-throw line. The senior has now accumulated 1022 points in his fabulous high school career with six remaining regular-season games including the upcoming PAC-7 Conference tournament and the opening round of the NCHSAA Playoffs.

During this past week in the two games played, Murphy was outstanding with two solid performances. Against Bradford Prep he scored 18 points, grabbed 11 rebounds for the double-double in the win, and followed up on Friday night with a 27 point performance and 9 rebounds to lead the Stallions in two conference victories.

Murphy appears to be going the junior college route and two programs, in particular, have shown a lot of interest in him. Louisburg College, Louisburg, North Carolina, and Sandhills Community College, Pinehurst, North Carolina.

The Sports Editor and sportswriters at the Mint Hill Times want to congratulate Jeremiah for his accomplishment in joining an elite club of 1000 point scorers and for being selected as our “Featured Player of the Week.”
