Mabry gets two more offers

Rocky Mount junior All-Stater Tashawn Mabry received two more scholarship offers Monday.

Mabry, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard/forward, had already gotten offers from N.C. State, Wake Forest and Clemson.

Monday, he got offers from Marquette and LSU. Xavier and Virginia Tech are on the verge of making him an offer, says his dad Mike Mabry.

Although the NEW 6 All-Conference basketball team has not been released, Mabry, the co-MVP of the league last season, is a lock to be picked to the first team squad for the third straight season. He averaged 26.4 points this past season and is moving ever so close to becoming Rocky Mount's all-time scorer.

I will have to get up with Charlotte Bobcats assistant Phil Ford to see what he's up to next Christmas, when his 2,093 points - the RM scoring record he's held for 35 years, will come down. Mabry needs just over 280 points to get there.

Ford was very gracious in saluting Tyler Hansbrough when his 31-year stranglehold on UNC's top scoring mark went down this season.

Perhaps he'll do the same for Mabry.

Records are made to be broken.

And one day, all of Mabry's scoring records will be broken too.


Eat Well. Live Well.

They sure are. But how many of us will be around perhaps the next time it happens? Remember, it's taken almost 36 years for Ford's mark to even be threatened. And his UNC mark took 31! Both were approaching two generations of time.

We should celebrate the moments for them all!

I hope phil is at the game, it will make it even more special. In front of a packed house you have the past, the present and tashawns future!!!!

It will mark just one of many records that Mabry will break next season barring injury.
