David Peele had a career night for his Wilson Christian Academy varsity boys basketball team last week, making him this week’s Thomas Law Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.
David, a senior guard, drained eight 3-pointers on his way to a career-high 25 points in the Chargers 66-47 victory at home Friday over Faith Christian of Goldsboro. David also grabbed seven rebounds in the win that ended a two-game slide and started a three-game winning streak for Wilson Christian.
The son of Amy and Brian Peele of Sims, David is an honor-roll student at Wilson Christian, where he maintains a 3.5 GPA.
He is active at Farmington Heights Church in Wilson and works part-time at Auto Bell.
He hopes to attend either Wilson or Nash Community College and major in business before transferring to a four-year college.
