Friends, family, teammates and coaches gathered in Woodgrove High School’s library April 29 to celebrate senior Brad Gilson’s commitment to play basketball and attend Columbia University, an Ivy League school in New York.
Gilson, a two-time Dulles District Division 3 Player of the Year and All-Region II team selection, holds 18 of a possible 27 records in the two-year history of Woodgrove’s basketball program. Gilson averaged 26 points and 10 rebounds in his two seasons at Woodgrove, totaling 1,211 points.
The 6-foot-5 sharpshooter set a Loudoun record for points in a non-overtime game with 54 points in a win over Loudoun County as a senior. Gilson, Woodgrove’s 2011 Male Athlete of the Year, also maintains a 4.03 grade point average.
The Columbia Lions, coached by Kyle Smith, produced a 15-15 record in the 2011-2012 season, including a 4-14 mark in the Ivy League.
