My name is Cole Dietrich. I am a 16 yr. old 6'3 small forward from Mandeville, Louisiana. I started playing basketball when I was 7 and Kobe was my inspiration to play the game. I practice, train, and play year round, no breaks. Basketball seemed to come natural to me and I loved it so much that it just became a part of who I am. This year we were undefeated District Champs and advanced to the Elite 8 in our State Playoffs. I was chosen as All District and also was the top scorer on my team with over 400 points this school season and named Offensive MVP. This year my travel team won both YBOA Varsity State and National Championships. Last year I was selected to play on Lakeshore's High School Varsity team as an incoming Freshman, Lettered, and was awarded Freshman MVP. I played 8th grade varsity when I was in 7th grade and was also picked to play in the summer league with my high school as a 7th grader. I earned MVP for my Junior High JV team and Offensive MVP for Junior High Varsity. I maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout Junior High and completed my Freshman and Sophomore years with a 4.57 GPA . I would like to find a school where I can play in a great basketball program and also obtain an excellent education. The dedication that I have put forth all of these years has become visible in my game making me a standout player. I am committed to continue developing my game and excited about my future in basketball and life!
