Morro Bay High School celebrated the past and future athletic accomplishments of boys basketball and volleyball star Edward Griley on Tuesday. The 6-7 Griley signed his scholarship papers to play basketball at California Lutheran University, which is in Thousand Oaks.
Griley helped guide the Pirates to back-to-back Los Padres League titles. His senior season when Morro Bay went 17-10, Griley averaged 13 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocked shots per game. He averaged 16 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks per game as a junior. "We went back-to-back and set records here, things that have never happened in Morro Bay. So I went off on a good note and my teammates went off on a good note and now I'm off to bigger and better things," said Griley, who also starred on the boys volleyball team and helped the program win its first-ever outright LPL title this spring.
Cal Lutheran basketball competes at the NCAA Division III level and is coming off an 11-13 season, where it finished in fifth place in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference at 7-7. The Kingsmen won five of its last six games. Rich Rider has been Cal Lu's head coach since 1994. In 18 seasons, the Kingsmen have gone 287-165 and won two conference titles, most recently in the 2007-08 season.
Griley said he chose Cal Lutheran over Vanguard and La Verne. He plans to major in exercise science.
