When you think about it, Mya Mosley couldn’t help but become a basketball player.

Mosley, a senior at Wachusett Regional, is averaging 13.2 points per game for the 8-1 Mountaineers [as of Friday, Jan. 22]. To say that there is a strong basketball influence in her gene pool is kind of like saying the Porsche 911 is a fast car [Editor’s note: Um, KP, maybe a car not from the ‘80s; I’d have gone Bugatti Veyron or McLaren F1, myself. But, anyway — carry on].

Wachusett basketball star Mya Mosley stands with her parents, Will Mosley of Worcester and Donna Gillogly, who captained the team at Worcester State.

Wachusett basketball star Mya Mosley stands with her parents, Will Mosley of Worcester and Donna Gillogly, who captained the team at Worcester State.

Mosley’s father, Will, a Worcester firefighter (and former police officer), was a standout player at Burncoat High who went on to play briefly at Division 2 Assumption College. Will still competes in adult leagues throughout the city and works with many Worcester-area athletes as a personal trainer.

Mosley’s mother, Donna Gillogly, excelled in basketball in both high school and college.
