Newman Catholic’s Max Burt holds school record for assists | Sports
MASON CITY, Iowa – Remember the name Max Burt of Newman Catholic.
He became the Career Support Leader leading the program in the field involving others.
“We’re trying as a team to get more assists. We play ‘us’ basketball more than ‘me’ basketball,” said Max.
Junior Max Burt says one of the goals this year was to increase defense and it seems to be working.
Newman’s Catholic boys’ basketball team have recorded only one loss in the season so far.
Max now holds the school record in assists and he thanks his teammates, but also says it’s not a bad job to have.
“It’s pretty fun. As a quarterback too, you can be successful there too. Try to get the whole team involved. Make sure everyone is involved. It’s not just you. “, explains Max.
He says the keys to success this season for the Newman Catholic Knights are defense, energy and heart.
The team plans to use those keys to go through with it this year.
“The waiting game is over. We have to go out there and do it. We have to continue it. This is where it happened as hard as possible for every second of the game,” said Max.
He’s committed to playing baseball at the University of Iowa, but we still have a year to see him play in high school.
The Catholic Knights of Newman hit court against North Butler on Friday.
