Kevin Michael O’Boy '19, the guard-forward and captain of the basketball team scored his 1,000th point on February 13. The four-digit milestone was recognized in a home game vs. Brooks School with teammates, fans, friends, and family with a brief celebration. O’Boy began his career at Belmont Hill in the winter 2015 season. This year he is averaging 11 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. He is a four-year player and three-year starter.
“Kevin Michael has been extremely dedicated to improving himself as a player,” said Coach Murphy. “He is never afraid to put in the extra work. He is one of first players in the gym and one of the last players to leave. In his four years on the team, he has only missed one game. I could not be happier for him.” The 6’3” senior plans to attend Colby College next year.
O’Boy joins the following recent graduates who played under Coach Murphy, Hilal Dahlel ’15, Jovan Jones ’18, and David Mitchell ’18, in reaching this remarkable accomplishment. Other players to score more than 1,000 points during Coach Martellini’s tenure include Sean O’Grady ’03,Sean Clancy ’05, and Kyle Delaney '85 (Erik Bertelsen was the head coach at the time).
