Thursday February 6th, Chicopee High Pacer basketball player Kobe Parker joined the 1,000 point club while scoring his 1,000th point at Sci-Tech. What makes this extra special is that Kobe suffered an ACL tear in his sophomore year and has had to work extremely hard to complete his recovery. Kobe felt very good that his hard work paid off in the long run and really wanted to thank his friends for their encouragement and hard work in helping him return.They were always committed whether it was late nights or early mornings. Kobe wanted to thank everybody that supports him, Jaela, his mom, his dad, his sister, his nieces and Molly. Then Coach Menard and Coach Gavin and “everybody that has been there since day 1.” Kobe ended last night’s game with 27 points and got the W over Sci-Tech. We couldn’t be prouder of you and your great accomplishments Kobe! Congrats on 1K!
