Athlete of the Week: Chad Lott - January 8th

Posted: Updated:

C.E. Byrd point guard Chad Lott has led his team to an impressive 17-3 start going into district play. The 6-3 junior was an important part of why the Yellow Jackets finished runners up in the Bossier Invitational.

"Chad's such a good person that you love to coach him," said Rusty Johnson, Byrd head coach. "He works really hard. He's the hardest worker I've got. He never stops trying to get better."

A constant critic of his own game, Lott has drawn inspiration from this father who was also a former Byrd standout.

"I'm trying to be better than him."

Lott is one of the most highly recruited players in the state with several D-I scholarships already on the table.

"I'm just going to play ball right now and weigh it out when I need to."
