GRAPELAND – Grapeland Sandie Deco Bryant scored his 1,000 point during the Tuesday, Jan. 7 game against the Alto Yellow Jackets.
Bryant was unstoppable as he pumped in 34 points against the Alto defense as the Sandies won the game by a score of 74-51.
The senior guard came into the game with 996 points. Almost immediately after the game got underway, Bryant drained a three-pointer and shortly thereafter, he went over the 1,000 mark with a layup.
The crowd held up signs which read, “1,000” and the game was stopped temporarily as Grapeland ISD Superintendent Don Jackson announced Bryant’s achievement.
