Gage Scores 1,000th Point for the Eagles

It’s a feat only six other Eagle basketball players have accomplished - scoring 1,000 or more points during their high school career.

On Tuesday, February 5, Milton Gage ‘19 became the seventh player in the school’s history to do just that. 

“Milton is one of the very best players to come out of CJ,” reflected head coach Joe Staley ‘72. “He's always been a competitor, and every time he takes the court he has tremendous energy and drive.  He brings it every day.

“He's very athletic and has been blessed with really good quickness. Moeller had a great player, a West Virginia bound scholarship player try to guard him, and even he couldn't keep Milton out of the paint."

Gage, a four-year varsity player, was named to the All-GCL 1st team in 2018.

"Milton has also been a great leader for us, both vocally and by example” Staley added. “It's no coincidence that with Milton taking the lead, that we've had a really good season. He's had a lot of help, but Milton has been the driving force.

"Finally, Milton has been an outstanding representative of our program in the CJ community. He's a member of FLIGHT and a great student. With Milton you get the whole package."

Congratulations, Milton!
