Peyton McLaurin will tell you he's surprised he's contributed as much as he has to the Carthage Comets this season.

It has to be a pleasant surprise for all concerned.

McLaurin is averaging close to 17 points a game and scored 27 against the other Frontier League boys basketball powerhouse, South Jefferson. He also scored 25 against Massena, and 21 points each against General Brown and IHC.

The Carthage sophomore is this week's Watertown Savings Bank-7 News Athlete Of The Week. Watch Mel's profile of Peyton by clicking on the picture.
