Of all the freshman in Class 3A, none are scoring it better this season than Spencer’s 6-foot-2 guard Karter Petzenhauser.
And it’s not like he’s doing that on a bad team, the Tigers are 14-5 this season, they’ve won 13 of their last 15.
With his size, and the numbers he’s putting up on a good 3A team, it renders him of of the state’s very best 2022 prospects. And in addition to scoring it well (15 ppg), he’s also averaging 2.7 assists per game.
“I’m probably a pass-first point guard that has the ability to score at all levels on the floor. I can step-out and shoot, take my guy off the dribble if I need to and just score at any level,” said Petzenhauser.
Not many freshman get the opportunity to play at the varsity level, especially at the 3A ranks. Even fewer lead their team in scoring as a freshman.
“Obviously I had big expectations of myself, but it’s been going really great,” said Petzenhauser. “I put in a lot of work to put myself in this position, so, it’s been good.”
Petzenhauser is hoping to make a deep run in the postseason, the Tigers open up substate on Feb. 18 against MOC-Floyd Valley.
“I’m just looking to make a strong run in the postseason and hopefully get to Des Moines and win as many games as we can,” said Petzenhauser.
When his freshman season is complete, he’ll play 15U ball. Petzenhauser is still undecided as to what program he’ll run with; but just hopes to continue and put his name out there, whichever program it is.
“This summer, I’m just really looking forward to continue and get my name out there and continue to make strides in my game,” said Petzenhauser.
