Oklahoma Centennial’s Moun’Tae Edmundson Jr. opened his senior season with a 33-point performance against OKC Storm North Monday afternoon. The Centennial Bison pulled out the 86-84 win. I caught up with Moun’Tae to talk about the game, his senior season, and his further ambitions and goals.
Moun’Tae admitted he had pre-game jitters before the game Monday.
“I was anxious and ready to play and start the season off right,” Moun’Tae said.
Moun’Tae’s nerves were calmed after coming out with the win and 33-piece. Now he’s ready to get the show on the road.
Moun’Tae is one of the more anticipated players in the Oklahoma 2019 class. He is regarded as one of the most talented floor generals in the Oklahoma City Metro, . Having spent all four years at Centennial and having started and seen considerable minutes each year, his expectations for himself will be as high as anybody’s.
“I would like to get better everyday, learn and stay in the gym consistently,” Moun’Tae said. “I want to set the best example while remaining humble.”
The 5-foot-8-inch guard can score with the best guards in the state and can dish it out too. He’s pretty shifty too and has better-than-average handles. Edmundson plays physical, fast, and with a lot of energy. He should be one of your favorite players this season.
“Personally I’m chill and very laid back. . . until it’s time to handle business,” Moun’Tae Edmundson.
He also believes his team has the ability to make a run for the Championship.
“I think we have a good chance,” Moun’Tae said. “We are hungry. Everyone on the team is dedicated to making a Championship run. We push each other to a different degree each practice.”
Moun’Tae describes his emotions entering his senior year as “anxious, excitement, and a little bit of fear”.
“I am going to leave everything that I have all out on the floor,” Moun’Tae said. “I am very passionate about my craft and am all about doing whatever it takes to win.”
