ST. PAUL, Neb. (KSNB) - St. Paul senior Tommy Wroblewski isn’t one to talk himself up. Instead, he lets his accomplishments do the talking for him - and boy were his accomplishments talking last week.

“You know I just took it day by day. It was a pretty fun week,” Wroblewski said. “It was a fun week for everyone.”

On Wednesday Wroblewski signed his letter of intent to play football at Division I Wyoming after an incredible high school career on the gridiron.

“He’s got a motor that just doesn’t stop,” St. Paul Boys Basketball Coach Derek Reinsch said. “You can see what Wyoming sees in him with his athleticism.”

Two days later he eclipsed the 1,000 career points milestone on the hardwood, and became the school’s all-time leading scorer.

“There’s a lot of records in the 90′s and it’s pretty sweet to be up there,” Wroblewski said.

“The thing I love about it so much is yeah Tommy hit a thousand points and broke the school record, but just the excitement on the bench,” Reinsch said. “The kids are really all involved, you can tell it is such a huge team camaraderie.”

The accomplishments don’t stop there. The do-it-all guard led the team with 23 points in the Lou Platte Conference Tourney Championship win over Doniphan-Trumbull - the team’s first title since 1997.

As for individual records, there are still more to be broken.

“He’s getting up there in the career three point record and the career free throw record,” Reinsch said.

Wroblewski already holds the record for threes in a game with eight. He’s a problem for opposing defenses, and his teammates make it impossible to double team him.

“Probably one of the biggest things that people forget about - he is such a phenomenal passer. As he’s driving to the hoop yeah he’s looking to score, but he’s also looking to dump and get guys involved,” Reinsch said. That’s what makes him so hard to guard.”

“We got a lot of shooters, so it’s nice to have the next guy you’re going to pass to have an opportunity to score,” Wroblewski said.

The Wildcats are 18-1 on the season and have their eyes set on accomplishing even more but wow, that was one heck of a week.

“It’s a huge week. Tommy has been through a lot his senior year and we’re very proud of him and where he’s at. We’re happy for him and wish him the best of luck next year at Wyoming,” Reinsch said. “Hopefully he’s got another seven or eight games left as a Wildcat in a basketball uniform.”

There’s one more massive accomplishment that Wroblewski and the Wildcats are hoping to cross off that list. A state championship - the first since 1995.
