SO GOOD: Bozeman's Oliver Carr

Posted: Updated:

Ask anyone of Oliver Carr's teammates and they'll tell you his work ethic is second to none. He works on his skills because of what it produces.

"Playing in the games is just the motivation for working hard. It's fun for hard work to pay off. People recognize you is the best part about that," said Oliver Carr.

"He never stops. He's got an attitude that's like go go go. Work as hard as he can. It's just fun to watch," said teammate Caleb Weidenaar.

In today's world of kids playing AAU ball, Coach Holmquist says Oliver gets better his own way: the old fashioned way.

"He has kind of gotten the old school approach to that. He didn't play a lot of AAU ball he didn't do all that stuff he spent time working on his skills, and that's why you've seen the success he's had," said head coach Wes Holmquist.

"Sometimes he can just score on the double team he's a great player but when the double team comes he's in a position to find us for us to score," said Weidenaar.

If you're not following Carr's example, the guys hear it from Coach.

" For him to come in a work hard every day and for kids you know I point it out to the kids and say look how hard he's working how come you guys are working that hard and that's a good learning tool," said Holmquist.

Carr accepted a full scholarship to play ball at Carroll College. But something you may not know about him?

"I'm pretty musical. I play the guitar and used to play the trombone and I have an appreciation for music so I guess that's kind of cool," said Carr.
