Carthage Comets point guard Peyton McLaurin chosen for coaches competition.

The Carthage Central School basketball standout was the only boy in the North country to  compete for the Central team in the Basketball Coaches Association of New York  summer hoops festival.

According to the Watertown Daily Times interview, McLaurin said “did not think I was going to be picked.” McLaurin finished his 2013-14 season scoring 283 points, hitting 40 3-points and 45 free throws. He made Class A All-State ninth team and All-North first team.

McLaurin’s high school coach, Jeff Ventiquattro, said that the competition was likely a good opportunity to be spotted by college scouts.

Games were held in Johnson City near Binghamton.
