On Wednesday Feb. 20 in Abington, senior captain Bryson Andrews set a new school record of scoring 1,210 points for boys varsity basketball. The Abington High Green Wave were facing their longtime rival the Rockland Bulldogs, and Andrews decided to make some history. The record was previously held by Abington Class of 2010 (then senior) Ryan Chambers, who led AHS with 1,206 points.

When the record was broken, the fans were cheering and being loud for him. Andrews sunk his record-setting points on a layup from a stolen pass, and when he did, Green Wave players, coaches, and fans alike went wild.

Andrews’ work ethic is incredible; his play style is enviable; and he is fun to watch from the stand or on the bench. He has worked hard and earned his way to be in school history. When asked about the moment, Andrews said, “It feels amazing to achieve something special. It took a while for it to sink in.”

Since then, Andrews continues adding to his extraordinary run playing basketball for the Abington Green Wave. He is averaging a surprising 23.5 points per game and leading the South Shore Division in points per game.

Part of Andrews’s greatness is that he is humble. He said, “I wouldn’t have done it [set the record] without the help from every coach that got their hands on me and my teammates for trusting me with the ball.”

The season is not over, and Andrews added that he cannot think too much about his record right now because “playoffs are literally right around the corner.” He said that he needs “to lock in and do what this team does best, and that’s scoring, working together, having fun, and defending as a team.”

Andrews said his team works well together. “We all know what our jobs are and we all know what we need to do at this point. It’s just the matter of execution.”

Fans are encouraged to come out to the Boys Basketball Games and support the Green Wave. They play their first playoff game on Wednesday, February 27th against South Shore VoTech in the first round of playoffs at 7:15 PM at Abington High School.
