Reflecting on the journey, Galvan said, “I set the 1,000-point goal in my freshman year and it is a dream come true. The formula to achieving this goal is working hard. It’s a testament to the unwavering support of my teammates, coaches, and the Southside community because they’ve helped me reach this goal.”
Similarly, Wilson expresses gratitude: “This achievement is not just about me. It’s a big win for the Southside community. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my brothers on the team and my coaches. I needed them to achieve this goal.”
