Last season, Calvin Carlson was a promising sophomore for Humboldt, who netted 44 3s and averaged 11.0 points per game. This season, he’s a breakout candidate.

Through two games, the 5-foot-9 guard is averaging 22 points, including a 32 point outburst in the season opener against Bishop Garrigan.

“I like to shoot the 3, that’s one thing. And this past summer and offseason I really worked on attacking the basket and getting to the free-throw line. Also, I like to think of myself as a leader for my team,” said Carlson.

“I would say strength is something I need to continue and work on, and then my mid-range game.”

Now an upperclassmen with the Wildcats, Carlson says in addition to his increased statistical production will come and increased leadership role.

“I took on more of a leadership role this year. When we need a shot, or we need a stop, that’s my role,” said Carlson. “And I’m getting a lot more shots up this season.”

And when his junior season is complete, Carlson will again pay with AFES for his grassroots season. He’s hoping to see some recruitment come his way over the next 12 months.

“I’d like to play college basketball, if the opportunity arises; so any college that needs someone like me, I’d love to play for them,” said Carlson.  

“With my size, I was thinking probably D2,D3, JuCo, NAIA, and any of those type schools I’d be open to.”
