Terrence Clarke (Expressions)

Terrence Clarke gave us a lot to talk about during the AC Showcase. The fluid guard seems to be headed for stardom in the New England area. We decided to sit down and talk to him. 

One On One Feat. Terrence Clarke 

BS: What are your basketball goals for the season? 
TM: My basketball goals for the season is to win as many tournaments as possible. As well as be able to grow as a family without interruptions and to be a better unit. 

BS: Who’s your favorite player and why? 
TM: My favorite basketball player is Kevin Durant because I think he's a long linky guard that can score from anywhere, which helps him rebound the ball and be a defensive threat. 

BS: What is the strongest aspect of your game? 
TM: the strongest aspect of my game is handling the ball. I can dribble past my defender and create opportunities for myself as well as my teammates. My jump shot is improving I’m able to knock down more shots to keep defenders honest. 

BS: What aspect of your game needs the most improvement? 
TM: I need to improve EVERY aspect of my game, my goal is to attend college on a athletic scholarship and to do so I need to be Great at everything, athletically, mentally and physically. We work out 4/5 times a week challenging each other which will help me with all aspects of my game. 

BS: What was your fondest basketball moment? 
TM: My fondest basketball moment was catching a dunk with Expressions for the first time. I went down the lane and brought it back and jumped from pretty far. My teammates were so hype before and after my dunk and it made me more amped for the entire game! 

BS: What’s your dream college and why? 
TM: My dream college is Kentucky because I want to play against and with the best competition and contend for a NCAA Title. I want to be on TV, with the entire world watching me. 

BS: Who is the toughest opponent you ever faced? 
TM: My toughest opponent I have faced against in my eyes was Team Takeover. 5th grade, they made me really realize that I have to work hard to be able to play at the highest level. 8th grade year they made me realize that I have to get physically stronger. 

BS: How do you deal with the pressure of being ranked as one of the top players in New England? 
TM: I don't take it into consideration. I try to stay humble and play my game. I usually hear it a lot from others but I just stay on my grind and think about the country and not just my region. I know there's lots of other players out here in the world, so I got to be better than them also. 

BS: If you could have dinner with one person, who would you select and why? 
TM: I would have dinner with Michael Jordan. I would like to hear how he felt when he was doubted in HS & when he got to college what did he do to become great. Also want to know how he handled the media and fans out there. 

BS: Give me one word to describe your game. 
TM: Determined!
