All Tournament Hoopseen: 2x 15U, 1x 16U
Hi, I'm Dylan Carter, three year varsity player for 7A Forsyth Central in Cumming, GA and for the 17U Atlanta Wolfpack AAU team. I am a 1 sport athlete, training in basketball year round - I do enjoy fishing and golf when not on the court. I am an athletic point guard, a play-maker who enjoys playing on both ends of the floor, shooting 40% from 3 and 50% from 2. Most people are surprised by my vertical leap when they watch me play. My stats include 4.1 assists, 1.5 steals, and an 74% free throw percentage per game. I believe in “team” and I am a strong competitor. I am also involved in school activities such as DECA, and school ambassador. I have a 3.40 GPA and plan on majoring in Business or Statistics. Follow me on twitter: @DylanCarter0410
Playing on a team will help me stay disciplined in my classwork (as it does in the high school environment). I feel like basketball makes me a better student. I enjoy the camaraderie with the other players and it gives me a sense of purpose. Basketball feeds my soul - I have been passionate about playing since I could walk and I am not ready to give it up.
First, I am a mediator, I often serve as the cool head when things might get heated between the coach and other players. I respect the coach and do not argue or talk back to the coach.
Second, I show other players that I will not respond negatively when I am being coached in a challenging way. Sometimes, I help talk a teammate off the ledge. If it is running as a team penalty, then I just get to work and don't worry about arguing about it.
I go to the store often with my mom and closely evaluate the nutritional content of the food we buy. I try to watch my macros intake so I am eating the right proportion of proteins, fats, and carbs. I workout daily on my physicality - weight lifting, pushups, etc... and I workout daily doing basketball drills and shooting, in addition to almost daily practices year round. I get a lot of sleep to keep my mind sharp for the classroom and the court.
I volunteer to help run children's basketball camps in the summer at the Recreation Center. I like helping kids understand the game and to reach their potential.
I am also an ambassador at my school - I help with events such as Alumni night, Homecoming dance, and Graduation. I like to be a part of my school community.
