Even though he played the entire season with an injury to his left hand, Richmond senior Reid Summers still managed to keep the RHS record keepers busy. The Spartan sharpshooter was named to the Class 3 Missouri Basketball Coaches Association All-State basketball team.

Summers completed his Spartan career with just about every scoring mark at Richmond High School. The four-year starter scored 2,027 points and knocked down 399 3-pointers to not only establish a new RHS mark, but a state record as well. Summers also owns the school mark with 11 3-point buckets in a game and ended his career by shooting 84 percent from the free throw stripe.

Despite the hand injury suffered in the preseason jamboree, Summers averaged 27.8 points and 7 rebounds a game this season. He set two new scoring marks at the Lawson Invitational in January by scoring 96 points in his three games in addition to making 10 3-point baskets in the tournament opener.
