SO GOOD: Bigfork's Christian Evans

Posted: Updated:

Christian Evans has been playing basketball since Kindergarten. The senior led Big Fork in 3 point percentage, free throw percentage, scoring, rebounding, and blocks. Number 33 realizes the talents he's been given.

"Got a God-given talent, so gotta make use of them," said Christian Evans.

"He wants to be a basketball players, so he's a gym rat, I think he learned from last year that he needed some weight room time. He really went in and did that," said Big Fork head coach Josh Downey.


A lot of times it's Evans who sparks big runs for Big Fork.

"When we go off, it's because he goes off and all of a sudden you see this emotion come out of him that you don't see very often. I think the players feed off of that and I think that's natural leadership," said Downey.

Whether in the high post or the low block, Evans has one go to move.

"Spin move. I like using that. As much as I can. I think it's most effective and with my build I can spin around people," said Evans.

"He's so smooth with the ball that spin move is one of his best attributes. Every time he gets the ball down there it's pretty much guaranteed baskets," said teammate Josh Sandry.

Usually Christian has a very reserved personality, but coach says there's a different side to him.

"He's got a goofy side to him. You see in the hotel atmosphere with his buddies or on the bus or that goofy hat he's been wearing all week," said Downey.

"He's a pretty goofy kid to be honest with you. He might not be like that around other people but once you get to know him he's pretty cool and funny," said Sandry.

Evans wants to play college ball... as North Dakota State, Eastern Washington, and Montana have all shown interest. At the Class B state tournament Jeff Eberle, ABC FOX Montana Sports.
