CHARLOTTE COUNTY (SNN TV) -- If you're a fan of high school basketball in Southwest Florida, more than likely you have seen Charlotte High big-man, Tre Carroll, dominate on the court over the past two years.

“It’s an ongoing mission that has been going on since freshman year," Carroll said. "I believe I still have to prove a lot of people wrong.”

Our Carl Reynolds Law Student-Athlete for the month of March is fresh off a senior season where he averaged 23 points and 11 rebounds a game — all well helping guiding the Tarpons to their first regional title in program history.

“He’s going to be truly missed," head boys basketball coach at Charlotte high Tom Massolio said. "[He's] one of the best players to ever come out of this program. His lasting impact will be his commitment to his team and his loyalty to Charlotte high school,”

Carroll will hang up his number 12 Charlotte jersey as the all-time leading blocker and second leading scorer. Carroll also holds the record for the most points scored in a single game, at 48. Only two former Tarpons have been named first team all-state, later this year Carroll will find out if he made the cut. The 6-foot-8 forward has been playing for Massolio since he was 13 years old, forming a deep bond.

“Father son relationship," Carroll said. "I know he is going to be there for me, I know I’m going to be there for him. I’ve got his back and he’s got mine.”

“I graduate great players and great students, but I gain a group of great friends," Massolio said. "This group, especially Tre, the friendships we are going to have through the years is going to be special.”

In the fall, it’s off to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, where he will compete under a Division-I basketball scholarship. And who knows, maybe one day down the road you’ll see Carroll on TV as a basketball analyst, as he has plans of studying broadcast journalism in college.

“That seems like another dream job for me," Carroll said. "Hey sign me up for it, I’ll do it in a heartbeat — come on where are the papers, where is the contract, sign me up man!”
