Brain and Brawn: The Floor General Extraordinaire


Colton Helton @Coltonhelton23 , Instagram- coltonhelton3, 6’4 , 180l, c/o 2027 from Scott County High School, KY is an electric young talent with a silky smooth skillset. Polished guard with great footwork, strong handles, and incredible timing. High IQ and a soft touch .  Colton loves to play up tempo and has great court vision , always looking to make the extra pass if needed. He can also attack the basket off the dribble and finish at the rim. With his size at the guard spot Ihe can create mismatches against smaller guards and as well knock down the open three point shot. Colton is very active with determination and a strong work ethic . Played both JV and Varsity on a veteran team as freshman..

On the JV squad Colton averaged 12 points, 6 rebounds ,and 3 assists per game. On varsity Colton averaged 2 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist on that veteran team getting some varsity time as a freshman- high game for varsity was 11 points including three 3’s. Playing for Kentucky Future Elite 2027 Colton's AAU goals are to develop as a player and improve his overall game with a talented team and against top level competition to elevate his game to the highest level. Colton will  focus on Improving and developing into a more consistent perimeter shooter and improving his on the ball defense. The most motivating thing that happened last season that will push Colton forward: striving to prove himself and his game as an all around player at the Varsity level.what fuels my fire the most: The desire to compete and win fuels his fire while showing the improvements to his game and helping his team win.

 When handling adversity on court Colton tries to keep his composure and use adversity to motivate him to elevate his game even more and to have something to prove with a chip on my shoulder. Coltons goals going into next season is to be the best overall player that he can be to help his team be successful.

 Coaches should know what sets Colton apart from others: is a student of the game with a very high basketball IQ who loves being in the gym and working tirelessly on his game. Colton is a coach's kid as both of my parents are high school basketball coaches and he has grown up in the gym, willing to listen and be coached hard to get the most out of my natural talent.  Colston  wants to play at the highest level possible (Division 1) but is open to playing at any level to further his college basketball and academic career. My assessment is that with his work ethic and continued improvement and passion mixed with his determined dedication to learning the game he will achieve that D1 dream . Question is how high of a D1? That chapter remains to be written. Stay tuned and get on this train now as it's taking off yall.
