Congratulations to Tank.It's a shame Frank Scago never had the 3 point shot rule to add to his total, though. Is the number of games scheduled and played comparable ?

How very sad that race has had to be relied on to condemn behavior that is unacceptable and is so negative in light of recent gun violence and the effect that it has had on so many innocent families. The real question is whether St. Joe has made tuition offers when Donna Quallen was in power in order to push the school's reputation as a high school sports power in order to attract other students.

I am not a gang and never will be... Never have been questioned by the cops nor been stopped by one. That was a bb gun. Granted that wasn't the right thing to do but I'm just a kid. I'm a kid trying to furfill my dreams, and no one is ever perfect. At the end of the day the St.Joe Administration has helped me out tremendously. As to where this "GANG MEMBER "will be heading to College. Yes indeed I'm a African American is was raised right my Mother who is a single parent. She always told me "listen you've already been targeted because of the color of your skin with hate but I know you would be stronger than most", but importantly I AM the leading scorer in St.Joe history, and take nothing away from frank scago no one deserves to be judged. Thank You

My apologies for the gang member reference. Kudos to you for acknowledging the gun pic and taking responsibility but using the "I'm just a kid" excuse is kinda lame. Very impressive response non the less. However Your mother was wrong in saying that you will be targeted just because of your color. To many African American parents put that thought in their children's heads therefor instilling a sense that all white americans are against you which is not the case. You will be afforded more opportunities because of you skin color so be smart and take advantage of those. One more thing....be smart about where you "party" You know you were at that party where the kid got caught with the 44 magnum!!!!!!!!! Is that just another "kid" mistake??

The kid reference is totally accurate simply because that was a immature mistake on my part. Of course I'm gonna own up to mistake. My mother was completely correct on what she told me by reading some of these comments, and actually I wasn't at that party. I'm not a partying kid. I put myself on a higher pedestal those most teens meaning I don't go to a lot of party nor do I drink or smoke. I know what it takes to succeed and I've seen a lot of people mess up their lives by those things.. I have no time for those things and if you talk to people that actually know me I'm in the gym everyday! People gotta realize that this isn't just a game to me... IT'S LIFE I will do nothing to screw it up. I don't know why i feel the need to explain to some of you people but if you can tell I'm a strong minded human

Tank is a the type of kid you could only pray your child becomes. I know him personally and he is a great kid who works his butt off to get what he deserves. He accomplished something that deserves nothing but respect and commendation. Congratulations Tank and good luck with the future.

I have watch this boy since he was small I consider him my little brother. The fact that all of u are trying to bring him down because of jealously that you guys have is redic. Who are any of you to judge this boy. That hasn't done anything to anybody. Tank stay off this site n laugh this off because misery loves company and there just a bunch of red necks trying to get to u. Keep ur head up n play the game boy.

I just hope he recognizes that college isn't about basketball, use it as your tool to succeed instead of just basketball. Do not take it for granted, finish the four years even if basketball doesn't work out so you don''t end up living in Pittsfield as a childhood hero when you can be so much more then that. Sports aren't everything.
