2019 Chaz Gwyn has dealt with the spotlight and expectations for several years now since his days in the middle school ranks.

Gwyn has a real chill demeanor the big stages don't shake him in the slightest, everything is just another challenge to overcome. Next season Gwyn will be expected to lead a proud WS Prep program back to the state championship game for a repeat. While the rising senior isn't the only starter returning, Gwyn will be featured in a new role with the departures of Daivien Williamson and Justice Goodloe.

Gwyn will have the rock in his hands a lot more as the featured lead guard, he will have to continue to stay aggressive offensively and look to get teammates to their spots. This new challenge is something Gwyn embraces and he has no plans of letting up on the Phoenix standard with this years group.

' Oh I have to do way more I'm in the gym a lot harder now because I know I have to do more than I did last year, with everything coming together that's going to help me, I've got that chip on my shoulder. ' Gwyn said.

Recently Gwyn received an offer from Drexel and he's continued to be one of the top three point threats in the EYBL. Gwyn and Team CP3 17U qualified for the Peach Jam next month, this same group took home the 16U championship last year. With a roster full of so much talent Gwyn has bought into his role and sacrificed with the group.

' It's just playing my part on the team my shooting is important so whatever it takes for us to get the win, it's not a lot of us and we're small this year but we're handling a lot of these teams pretty well.' Gwyn said.

'We're a good group we really connect well as a team and that's going to help us a lot at Peach Jam, we've been playing together for a long time since seventh grade I think and we talk almost everyday.' Gwyn said.

That Chemistry off the floor has guided this group to historic success on the court and this level of competition will only bring more exposure and confidence for the prep season.

Recently Nebraska has shown serious interest in Gwyn's services and a potential visit could be in play in the near future.

' Nebraska has been sending a lot of mail in I've heard from them a whole lot, I'd love to go out to Nebraska and explore more things and more colleges, I've never been out there.' Gwyn said.

Gwyn will carry big expectations into an anticipated breakout senior season with the defending 1A champs.

' I want to prove that we're no different from last year that's what I really want to prove, we're not losing anything from last year.' Gwyn said.

With consecutive Peach Jam titles and state championships in play Gwyn has a chance to skyrocket his recruitment stock and etch his name in hoopstate gloar with elite company.
