Bellaire’s Gabe Meriwether Joins 1,000-Point Club

BELLAIRE – With a first-quarter layup in a 58-31 win over Mancelona on Jan. 3, Bellaire senior Gabe Meriwether tallied his 1,000th career point.

The 2016 Associated Press Class D All-State honorable mention selection who led the Eagles to a Class D quarterfinal appearance a season ago joined older brother and 2012 Bellaire graduate Gus Meriwether in the 1,000-point club.

"To be honest, it reminds me of my brother, when he scored 1,000 points,” Meriwether said. “I remember watching him when I was really little when he scored his 1,000th. And I thought it was really cool that we could both do that… I don’t know how many he finished with, but hopefully I’ll catch him. I’ll ring his ear, or something, try to tease him about it."

Meriwether is undecided on his future college plans.
