Feb. 28, 2019 - Bowling Green Forward Isaac Elsasser

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (WTVG) - Record after record. That is Isaac Elsasser's season with the Bobcats.

The senior is the first Bowling Green High School boys basketball player to break 1,000 career points since Vitto Brown in 2013.

Elsasser holds the career three point shots made record and leaves BGHS as one of the school's all-time leading scorers.

While many may say they don't pay attention to any of these marks, Elsasser is not one of those people.

"Kind of gives me extra motivation cause I was, I knew I was in reach of so many milestones that I could get kind of working over the summer," Elsasser said. "I had the extra motivation to go the extra mile and try to go out the best way that I can."

Marshall Headley is in his second year as the head coach of the Bobcats varsity team. Even with a relatively new coach, Elsasser has yet to miss a start on the varsity since about midway through his freshman season.

"You should always set personal goals and you should always set team goals," Headley said. "At the start of the year we always have the kids write out what their personal and their team goals are and one of his was to reach 1,000 points which thankfully he did early on. It was nice that he did it at home."

Speaking of home, Isaac will stay home next year has he has a spot as a preferred walk-on with the Falcons.

"I've been going to games ever since I was a little kid," Elsasser said. "My dad works at the university so I've kind of been around the program for awhile now and have an opportunity to put on that jersey would be surreal for me."
