By Mark DeCotis // May 27, 2015
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy standout Keoni Wallington has signed to play men’s basketball at Eastern Florida State College.
The 5-foot, 10-inch, 185-pound point guard averaged 22.4 points, 6 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game for the Tigers and is the second all-time leading scorer in Holy Trinity history.
He was an FHSAA Class 4A second-team pick and played AAU basketball for Nike Team Florida.
Titans head coach Jeremy Shulman expects Wellington to bring toughness, great point guard play and strength at the point guard position.
“We are very excited to welcome Keoni,” Shulman said.
“He is one of the best players to come out of Brevard County in the last few years, and we are very fortunate that he will be suiting up in an Eastern Florida uniform.”
“Keoni brings great toughness and production to the point guard position. He is a strong, physical guard who is tough to keep out of the lane. Keoni can run a team as well as really score the ball.”
Wallington joins previous signees Richard Gaines from Pleasure Ridge Park High in Louisville, Kentucky, Joan (Juwan) Duran from Hamilton Heights High in Chattanooga, Tennessee and Kareem Brewton from Snellville, Georgia and Shiloh High.
Men’s basketball tied the school record for victories in a season in 2014-2015, finishing 29-5.
It extended its Titan Field House winning streak to 47 games and gave Shulman his 100th victory as a Titan.
The Titans also were FCSAA Southern Conference champions for the third straight season, NJCAA Region 8/FCSAA Tournament finalists for the second time in three seasons and qualified for the NJCAA Men’s Division I National Championship for the first time since 2001, losing in the first round.
