Peak to Peak’s Max Clark awaits tipoff for a game at the Pepsi Center last season.

For this week’s installment of Six Questions, we nabbed Peak to Peak basketball player Max Clark. The 6-foot-4 junior averages 14 points and 7.1 rebounds for the Pumas, who are 9-2 ranked No. 5 in Class 3A.

Also a golfer at Peak to Peak, Clark is enrolled in three AP classes, two honors classes and carries a 4.2 weighted grade-point average.

Your first name on the roster is listed as Maxime. How’s that pronounced and what is the origin?

Clark: It’s pronounced Max-EEM, and it’s French. My mom is French. No one calls me that. Sometimes my mom, but that’s about it.

Who is the best opponent you’ve played against in hoops?

Clark: Playing in AAU against Josh Scott, the guy down at Lewis-Palmer. The guy’s a freak.

Which teammates would you most and least trust to cook the team dinner?

Clark: At the team breakfast a few days ago, Drew Otey tried to cook the pancakes and he could not get those right. So I would not trust him. I’ll give the apron to Myk Cepulis.

If the NBA could translate to high school ball, which player would represent you?

Clark: Tayshaun Prince. He’s lanky, a slasher, he’s scrappy, can shoot and me and him are both way too skinny.

You had the longer hair before holiday break and came back almost with a buzz cut. Lose a bet?

Clark: It was just getting too shaggy, you know? Too much. Just time to get it done.

Who was the man on your fantasy football team this season?

Clark: I had Adrian Peterson till he got hurt, but I had traded him right at that time and got Ray Rice. My workhorse.

Paul Willis does a Six Questions installment each week with a player from the BoCo area. Previous installments have included Monarch’s Alexus Johnson and Erie’s Clay Bunker.
