Aidan Carr

Aiding his teammates is Aidan Carr’s forte.

The Grade 12 student at Brentwood College is renowned for his work ethic and unselfish play to do whatever it takes for the senior boys’ basketball squad to win.

“I’ve always been sort of a defensive guy,’’ said Carr. “That’s something I take pride in, you can say — getting rebounds and just covering the players the best I can.

"Offensively, it’s more just playing for the points. If I can get something, that’s awesome. But I’ll let the points go to other people.’’

Brentwood coach Blake Gage said Carr sets a tone from virtually every practice and game and “the other guys can’t help but respond.

"He’s been a real leader for us on the floor, a guy who works as hard as any kid I’ve coached — just doesn’t stop battling and consistently guards the other team’s best player.’’

Many people thought Carr would wind up a 24/7 rower based on the long background in the sport of his dad Brian and grandfather Tony.

“I was planning on doing it till I started playing basketball a bit more,’’ said Aidan. “I know I broke the tradition a little bit, but my dad’s been pretty accepting of that.’’
