Bringing high expectations
Clahar earns Chick-fil- A Prep Athlete of the Week
Worrel Clahar, who has been playing basketball since before he can remember, finishes with big numbers in every game, putting Alcovy in a position to win each week.
And last week was no different, as the second-year Tigers went 2-0 — in the middle of a five-game winning streak — beating Salem, 45-40, and crosstown rival Eastside, 49-39.
Against the Seminoles, Clahar scored eight points followed by a game-high 15 points against the Eagles.
Based on his performance, Clahar has been selected as the Chick-fil-A Prep Athlete of the Week.
“He is who he is,” said Alcovy coach Eugene Brown when asked of his star point guard. “He is Worrel, and right now he has his rhythm, and that makes things easier for everyone.”
But what makes this senior, who enjoys playing Xbox 360 and dining at Burger King, any different from other athletes?
Hard work and determination, Worrel says.
“If you practice like you play, and practice hard, you will play hard,” said Clahar.
Clahar has been the team captain throughout the entire season, and is looking to take his club even further tonight against Heritage in what should be a closely contested game.
“We have gone through many trials and tribulations
