AVON – Dan Reagan, a junior at Avon High, was selected as the recipient of the 2014 Detrick Award at the Connecticut Basketball School in August.
Reagan attended the week-long camp in August at Saint Thomas More in Oakdale. Connecticut Basketball School is now in its 54th season and attracts players from Connecticut and around the nation.
The award is named in honor of former Central Connecticut State University coach Bill Detrick. It is awarded to the player who is selected as the top player in camp that week with a great attitude and ability. Reagan did get some playing time with the Avon High varsity last winter.
What made the award special to the Reagan family was the fact that Dan’s grandfather, Bob Reagan, who lives in Niantic, played for Detrick at Central Connecticut State from 1959-63 and was the first player to score 1,000 points in school history.
