Tell everyone about yourself?
My names CJ Carpenter, and I'm a 16 year old sophomore. I attend Georgetown Christian Home Educators in Georgetown, Texas. I play basketball for GCHE and AAU/MAYB for the Texas Titans. I am a 5 ft 7 inch combo guard(Point,Shooting) and play a little forward. I was recently contacted by a national recruiting service asking for more information!
What was your best game?
I feel my best game has not happened yet. I improve in every game and learn more about my skills has I go along. My team just started its first year and I finished with 34 points in 12 games. Although I didn't play alot of games (due to favoritism) my best game I had 8 points 1 rb and 3 assists. I have however, scored 17 points in more than one scrimmage games in rec ball.
Why are sports/education important to you?
Sports and education are really important to me because in life, if you stay in school and keep your grades up then alot of younger kids look up to you and you get a whole lot of opportunities with schools and sports! I cannot wait to go to college and earn a degree and hopefully play college basketball at the right place and make the right choice.
What can you do to make yourself better in your sport?
The only way I can get better is to listen to all the advice everyone gives me, and sorta let everyone around me influence and mentor my game, especially my family! I am also always at the gym playing pick-up games and lifting weights, because the harder you work the better you get. If you want to get better you need to admit you have strengths and you have weaknesses so the only way to improve those weaknesses is to play with better players!!!
What is your dream college?
I actually have alot of colleges I like mainly due to their school programs and their superb coaching,(style)! The following schools are just some of the places that would be a dream to attend and play basketball; University Of Texas/UT, Kentucky, Syracuse, UNC Tarheels, and The Tennessee Volunteers! These are just some of the schools that I not only enjoy watching but would enjoy to be a part of their incredible program. Just to be selected or sent a letter would be an honor for me and my family.
If a College Coach ask you, how can you make our team better, what would you say?
I would tell him that I would help him perfect his methods and plays. I would be a leader to the team 110% of the time and get him a championship win!
What advice can you give other student-athletes?
Stay and school,don't fall underneath pressure and take any sort of drugs whatsoever! Don't party at night celebrating a win because you have school the next day and need to stay in tip-top shape for the rest of the season! Always play hard,play your game (not anyone else) and most importantly don't get jacked up,you need to really relax.
