HUMBLE, TX - Atascocita's Carsen Edwards wants to make it clear, he's not trying to brag about his skills on the basketball court.

"I feel I'm quicker than most," Edwards said when asked to describe what makes him different than other players. "I'm aggressive, and I play with a chip on my shoulder."

That chip has served him well, helping Edwards stay motivated to earn a basketball scholarship at Purdue University.  Edwards has been on varsity for four years, and as a point guard, he takes charge of the Eagles.

"He's a senior, he knows what's expected of him," head coach David Martinez said.  "He's a pretty good kid. He helps people out when they need help. He's very polite."

Edwards isn't just about hoops though. He says his parents, especially his mom, encourage him to achieve more than accolades on the court.
