2022 – 23 Tyreek Veney Reaches 1,000 Point Mark

Tyreek joins elite list of FDHS basketball players

In the Region 3C tournament game against Spotswood, Tyreek Veney scored 9 points, putting him over the 1,000 mark for his career.  There have been only ten male players in FDHS history who have achieved this:

Dell Curry1,922
Troy Bower1,493
Steve Floyd1,248
Jimmy Crawford1,240
Ryan Cook1,186
Woody Hayes1,168
Robby Carter1,162
Joe O’Gorek1,038
Larry Leonard1,014
Tyreek Veney1,001

The seniors were fortunate to play with two of these players.  Ryan Cook was a senior when they were sophomores.  For Tyreek this was a great accomplishment especially since in 2020-21 Fort Defiance only played 13 games thanks to COVID-19.  This feat also provided Tyreek with a way to honor his dad, Sam, who died in December 2021.  Hooray for Tyreek!
