As a senior he averaged 15 points, 4 assists, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game, with a high of a school record 42 points. He was a 1st Team All-Central Vermont League selection and was chosen to participate in the Vermont Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Game.
Hornet head coach David Pasiak said "Clay adds to our perimeter depth and gives us another very good perimeter shooter. He improved tremendously over the course of his high school career and I'm confident that as he continues to mature physically and expand his game he will develop into a very good player at Lyndon. We are very happy to have Clay in our program."
BMU head coach Chris Cook added "Clay's hard work and dedication to the game over the summer prior to the season helped the Blue Mountain Bucks to the play-offs for the first time in two seasons. Clay's natural ability as a scorer helped us in many tight times during the season. Clay had game's of 27, 32 and 42 points for us last season. Clay's 42 point game set the record at Blue Mountain for most points in a game. Clay's ability to create off the dribble also allowed him to average 4.0 assist per game as well. Clay was a great talent on the floor and his work ethic was one that could not be questioned on and off. The Blue Mountain community will be excited to watch Clay's progress at Lyndon."
