Personal Highlights

Here is my Scouting Evaluation from ScoutsFocus' Live Elite Camp July 2014 at Guilford College:

"John Newton, a 6'7 2015 170lb prospect of East Carteret HS (Beaufort,NC), post player with good size and great length. He is a pass first player that is looking to get his teammates involved early. He sees the floor well hitting his teammates cutting to the rim. He understands the game and is a good screener helping his team get open shots. He plays the game with a high motor and crashes the boards hard on both ends of the floor creating extra possessions for his team. "

Here are some excerpts from my 2014 Fall Evaluation by Maximum Exposure Basketball:

"Great feel for setting screens."
"Good passer out of the post."
"Has a great attitude and listens to coaching."
"[H]e's got a lot of potential and size."
"Kid we'd keep an eye on for sure."
"He should be playing somewhere next year."

Here are some comments from my participation in the December 2014 Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, SC:

"Newton's been around that basket."
"You can tell he's played some ball." Former Clemson Assistant Coach, Tommy Gaither
"John is playing well." Former Appalachian State Assistant Coach (working with Press Maravich and Bobby Cremins), Andy Anderson

From a Carteret News-Times newspaper account of East Carteret High School's February 13, 2015 Senior Night:

"East Carteret's John Newton goes up for a basket Friday in the Mariners' dominating 99-31 victory over Jones Senior as fellow seniors...look on. Newton was one of 12 East players to score in the contest."

Here are some comments from the Standard of Excellence Basketball Academy Prospect Camp(Invitation Only)(June 14-30, 2015):

"John is a hard worker."
"I love that kid."
"One of my favorite players that I have ever worked with!!"
"Never quit."
"Never complained."
"Amazing Basketball IQ."
"John will be playing college basketball."
"Can play college basketball at a high level."
Coach J.D. Deloney

Here are some excerpts from my 2015 Maximum Exposure Summer Elite Camp Evaluation(August 1-2, 2015):

"Great energy, runs the floor well". "Good at kicking the ball out when he gets a touch in the post. Plays hard and competes at all times, sets screens."

Here are some excerpts from my 2015 Maximum Exposure All American(Invitation Only) Camp(August 7-10, 2015):

"Keeps ball high on rebounds, put backs. Countless buckets because used length and kept the ball high. Runs the floor well. Long legs can get up and down filling lanes on break. Physical player, but not reckless. "

Here are some excerpts from my Evaluation by Combine Basketball(August 10-14,2014):

"John had a great week with us. He learned a ton and really developed some new skills.
"Really coachable young man and extremely diligent and responsive in our workouts."
"Great young man."

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I work hard in practice, as well as in games, to make my teammates and myself better. In the classroom, I am working harder still, so that I will be successful in the game of life as well. I believe that by being a good student, I am leading my teammates by example, so that they too will become better students.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I do not consume alcohol or drugs, including tobacco, and try to eat what is best for me, and get plenty of rest. Only by taking care of my body and mind, can I, in the words of my first Coach, "Just do [my] best", and pursue healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I enjoy Community Service and have been a Volunteer Referee and Assistant Coach for Upward Basketball, a Volunteer Referee for Upward Soccer, a Volunteer Mentor and Coach at The Bridge Community Center, and a Volunteer Counselor for a Science Camp. Younger kids look up to me both literally(at 6'7+" and still growing) and figuratively, and I try to set an example for them not only as an athlete, but as a student as well.
