Atglen resident and college basketball prospect Christian Ray, a rising senior at The Haverford School, has received a number of scholarship offers thanks to his talent and winning mentality, writes Josh Verlin for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

However, while figuring out his future school is important to Ray, it’s certainly not his No. 1 priority.

“I take it definitely seriously,” he said. “But my focus this summer is just to win.”

Ray has done plenty of that in his two years with the Fords. Last season, he helped lead them to their first Inter-Ac League title in almost two decades, averaging more than 20 points during their 10-0 sweep of the six-team league.

Ray spent his first two seasons at Octorara High School as a workhorse forward. Now, he has expanded his range to the three-point line and improved his ballhandling.

He has also been training with Jim Ferris, the former 76ers strength and conditioning coach who has worked with countless professionals over the last 15 years.

High on Ray’s list of colleges are Bowling Green, Stony Brook, NJIT, Central Connecticut, Dartmouth, Holy Cross, Brown, Binghamton, and Lehigh.
