Follow these steps to create a college basketball player profile.
Select a basketball player at a college. Local is ideal.
Gather information on the selected basketball player. If the player is not a freshman, find career statistics, and career-high statistics. This can be found on the school’s athletic website.
Schedule an interview with the player and coach to gather more information. Get a quote from the coach on their perspective on the player you’ve selected. Ask for the player’s favorite quote.
With permission from the selected player, take a mugshot of them in their uniform. Or find one online.
With their permission, take an action photo of them playing in a basketball game. Or find one online.
Pick a template from Microsoft Word. A regular blank document will work just fine too.
Set up the document with 2 columns.
Upload the mugshot to the Word document on the top left-hand side of the page.
Pick a readable font type for the name of the player. The name should be by the mugshot. Font size for this step should be around 24 size font.
Under the name list the player’s jersey number, height, year (freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior), and hometown. Use a smaller font than the name.
On the left-hand side start a section called “Coach’s Clipboard.” This is where the quote from the coach will go.
Underneath that section, in reverse chronological order, start another section called “As a Freshman/Sophomore/Junior.” Include all that apply. If the player is a freshman then the only section they will have is “In High School.”
Summarize each section with information on their accomplishments.
The last section will be “Personal.” Include information of the players birth date, parents, siblings, major, and aspirations.
On the right-hand side upload an action photo of the player. If the player is a freshman, they will most likely not have an action photo.
Under the action, photo includes the player’s favorite quote to personalize their profile.
Under the quote add a table/chart of the player’s “career bests.” this should include game highs of the player’s points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals, field goals made, 3 point field goals made, and free throws made. Put what team the game-high was against, and the date it occurs.
On the very bottom of the page insert a table of their career stats. If they are a freshman they will not have this section.
Adjust font and font sizes for the desired tone.
