Reagan Carlson, son of Melissa and Rick Carlson, is a senior at Ravenwood High School and this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Varsity Boys Basketball Team and plays the position of power forward. This season, he shot at a 58% rate.
Carlson started playing basketball when he was eight years old. He started on a YMCA rec league before moving onto a school team.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “What inspires me is my teammates. The way we compete at practice really fires me up.”
One of his biggest role models is his father, Rick. Carlson said of his father, “He is one of the greatest people I know and he strives to do his part.”
RHS Basketball Coach Patrick Whitlock said of him, “Reagan showed excellent leadership throughout the season and was an energy guy for us. He was one of our best defenders and did the dirty work on the court.”
Outside of basketball he enjoys playing football, video games, and going bowling.
After graduating from RHS this spring, he plans to study accounting at The University of Tennessee- Knoxville.
