Not many athletes can honestly say they are the best at what they do, on any level. However, Cambridge-Isanti sophomore Henry Abraham can now say he is the best three-point shooter in the state.
Abraham has been a lights-out shooter since joining the Bluejackets varsity squad as an eighth-grader two seasons ago. Recently, he put those skills on display at the highly touted DeLa Salle Ellite basketball camp.
At the camp, Abraham had a good time playing against the top competition in the state in five-on-five, three-on-three and one-on-one drills.
“I think it was a great experience to play with those guys,” he said.
Where Abraham shined was the three-point shootout. While competing against people who have committed to Division 1 college programs, Abraham kept his cool.
“I just did what I always do,” he added. “I have just always liked to shoot.”
Abraham was able to rise above the competition to take first-place in the three-point shootout. Widely regarded as one of the top shooters in the Minnesota State High School League, he locked himself into the top spot for the foreseeable future.
Back at Cambridge-Isanti, Abraham is gearing up to take down several all-time records.
This season he is expected to break the Career Three Point record held by Kyle McDonald (205), as he currently sits at 171.
The season three-point record of 98 is well in his range as well; last season he finished at 85.
With two varsity seasons under his belt as a sophomore, Abraham is on pace to have a historic career at Cambridge-Isanti, and in the MN State High School league in general.
While he is preparing for the season ahead, he knows that scouts and coaches are already talking about his college potential.
“Really I would be fine playing anywhere that is Division 1,” he said.
Currently he is being recruited by Davidson, the same school that produced NBA superstar Steph Curry, who is considered the best three-point shooter in the game.
Right now, Abraham is training with the Bluejacket cross-country team in his second varsity season. He will be getting in shape, and working out at basketball camps preparing himself for the 2017-18 season.
