Production is the name of Rob Peterson’s game. Last season, he finished in the top 2 on his team in points, rebounds, and assists with 13 points, 8.5 boards, and 2 assists per game.
Peterson comes by his basketball acumen honestly as his dad is Buzz Peterson. Buzz played at UNC, has been a college head coach at the highest level, and is now in the front office of the Charlotte Hornets. So it should come as no surprise with all the success that Rob is having on the basketball court.
As with most of the most talented players in the state, Rob is an alum of the North Carolina Top 80. This prestigious event puts the best players from around the state on the court with one another to compete. After Rob’s performance in the 2016 event we wrote, “Rob did an outstanding job of doing all of the little things that makes his team successful. He rebounded, defended, and scored in transition numerous times throughout the day. One of his strongest attributes was his high motor, energy, and hustle. He plays with a full throttle approach and will always give you maximum effort. Rob got to the basket and scored through contact.”
Along the way Peterson has picked up Division 1 offers from Southeast Missouri and Presbyterian. He consistently produces, and does so at the highest level. Schools need to see this.
