Unstoppable Local HS Hooper Gets Offer To Play At Duke
If you live in the Glens Falls area, you're well aware of the legend of Joseph Girard III. Well the legend continues to grow as this high school junior can add another impressive accomplishment to his already amazing resume: a basketball scholarship to play for Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils.
Even if you're not a huge local high school basketball fan, more than likely you've heard his name or at least heard about 'that kid from Glen Falls that absolutely crushes it every night on the basketball court'. Jospeh Girard III is averaging over 49 points a GAME, he's scored 50 or more countless times this season and he's never scored less than 41 in a game this season. Did I mention that he's only a junior in high school and that he's ALREADY scored more points than any other basketball player in the history of New York State? In addition to the offer to play at Duke, schools such as Oklahoma, Michigan, Syracuse, Boston College and Ohio State have also offered scholarships. The kid can flat-out ball!
Girard's next game takes place Monday night at 6:30 as his Glens Falls team takes on Schalmont at Cool Insuring Arena (formerly the Glens Falls Civic Center)
