Stefano Okoro’s coach at Gloucester High described the senior as a “program changer.”

And on Thursday night, in Gloucester’s 47-38 nonleague win over Cumberland, Okoro put his stamp on Lions boys’ basketball history when he became the program’s second all-time leading scorer.

The guard/forward finished with 30 points, and his layup in the first quarter eclipsed Kevin Cunane’s career mark of 1,569. <NO1>Cunane wrapped up career at Gloucester in 1992 before playing baseball and football at Tulane.<NO>Keith Gorman (1998) remains first in program history with 2,128 points.

Okoro drained two three-pointers and all 10 of his free throws. He scored 15 points in the second quarter.

“He just seems to get better every year. This year, he took his game to another level,” Gloucester coach Kevin Hagan said.
