Just got off the phone with Coach Lance Carter of Cloud County Community College (KS). After many years of coaching with the Texas D-1 Ambassadors, assisting with Westlake & Lake Travis fall league teams and developing teams of young players the Big Fella is heading home.
Below: Coach Carter (L) was instrumental in the development of Big Gus Leeper (center) who has signed with Arkansas-Little Rock in the Sun Belt Conference.
Kansas is where Carter’s family resides; he’ll make nice money at Cloud, they’ll pay for his Master’s and they also take care of his daughter’s tuition. All in all, it’s a nice package. Carter previously played D-1 for Mercer University and coached at Fort Scout CC (KS). He leaves for Kansas on Monday, but not without taking a piece of Texas with him.
“Lance: We appreciate all you’ve done for basketball in the Austin community, and for the Texas D-1 Ambassadors. Best of luck in your new endeavors and your return to the college game.”- Coach Max
2009 P 6’6″ Abreon “A.D.” Jones of Leander has been signed to his scholarship with Cloud County and will play in the Jayhawk Conference. The former Texas D-1 Ambassador has faced lots of challenges but he’s now graduated from Leander High and has a chance to live his college hoop dream. Our hearty congratulations to you, A.D. for staying the course.
