BUTTE — Cade Holter has been tearing it on the hardwood for the Butte Central Maroons’ boys basketball team.
“Just a great kid, he’s got so much respect from his teammates. He’s selfless, and he’s always looking out for the good of everyone in the program,” said Butte Central head coach Brodie Kelly.
“I just get in my mind that I’m going to come out and play the best I can,” Holter said. “Whatever my role’s got to be that night, I know I’m going to do it. So, I always put the team first, doesn’t matter to me if I’m the leading scorer, but as long as I can contribute I know I did something.”
In his past two games against Anaconda and Corvallis, Holter recorded 29 points, 11 rebounds, 11 steals and nine assists. He’s a terrific basketball player, but just how terrific is he? MTN Sports’ Dom Tibbetts had to test it in a game of P-I-G. See the above video for how that outcome played out.
Holter is an excellent teammate, friend, and role model both on and off the court. Kelly saw that firsthand in Butte Central’s junior varsity game against Corvallis this past Saturday.
Said Kelly: “A great example of Cade Holter: The game ends, the previous game before ours one of the freshman in our JV team had a tough finish, was feeling pretty bummed about it, and Cade before he even got to the locker room kind of ran over and picked this freshman out of the crowd and was offering him words of encouragement and really letting him know what a great player he is. He did that all on his own. That right there, in a nutshell, is Cade Holter.”
