BA honors Coleman among basketball greats

1 min read

Beaufort Academy senior basketball player Dawson Coleman was honored Monday with a banner recognizing him reaching the milestone of 1,000 career points.

The banner was presented at the conclusion of the school’s annual Convocation at the start of the first day of school Monday by former head basketball coach Chip Dinkins, who coached Coleman through the 9th grade, and Frampton Harper, a 1985 graduate and the school’s all-time leading scorer with more than 1,800 career points.

Dawson becomes the fourth player to join the 1,000-point club in the last 10 years. He joins Miranda Weslake (class of 2014), Luke Harper (class of 2017) and Kevin Williams (class of 2017).
