Bulldogs Rely on Roy


Ville Platte, LA (KADN) — Ville Platte senior forward Terrian Roy leads the bulldogs in scoring averaging more than 15 points a game. However, he is wiling to do whatever job is necessary including filling in for two other injured starters this season.

“I was always taught to push through whatever I am going through, stay motivated, and sacrifice myself for whatever” Roy said.

“Terrian has been unselfish since the 9th grade,” Head Coach Tommy Jones said. “When he had to point guard, shooting guard, and small forward. He had to do alot of things for us and he delivered for us.”

Roy learned from his father’s example growing up to always sacrifice for the family. He wants to be an example for young players.
“I want them to know that they can do it also. Never stress yourself and always believe in yourself,” Roy said.

“Sometimes I have to fuss at him to shoot more because he is always thinking to get his teammates involved.”

Before his grandma died from cancer, Terrian had one tribute to her on the hardwood while she was sick. He scored 35 points a career high.

“It was just the happiest moment of my life,” Terrian said. “They can’t believe I did it for her. I just kept pushing to make them happy.”

Roy has scored more than 1000 points in his career at Ville Platte. He doesn’t have a basketball scholarship to college yet, but he has already reeled in respect.
