Tommy KunzJACKSONVILLE - Mississippi Valley Christian High School scoring phenom Tommy Kunz has scored his last point. Tommy, a first-team all-state selection in the Illinois Association of Christian Schools State Tournament In Jacksonville, finished his career with 2,578 total points, and that includes playing as an eighth-grader on the high school varsity team. Kunz is the all-time leading scorer at MVCS.

“Tommy had a historic career at MVCS,” Boys Basketball Head Coach Dave Schneider said. “He also was the heart and soul of turning our program around. We took our lumps when he was younger, but he helped us become a championship-contending team. He will be greatly missed. His hard work is an example to all future Warriors.”
