03 Feb 2024 Miles Dickinson – Conway Christian (501 Basketball Team 2024)
When it comes to adversity, Miles Dickinson is fearless. From dealing with injuries to tough opposition on the basketball court, Conway Christian’s senior forward has never met a challenge he couldn’t overcome.
“I have dealt with numerous injuries every year I’ve played high school basketball,” he said. “I fractured my jaw early in my sophomore year and missed the rest of that season. Last year, I broke my wrist at the end of football season, and I played all of my junior year with a broken wrist. After surgery came off-the-court rehab that I have had to push through to get me to where I am today.”
Back at full strength, Dickinson leads the Eagles against the highly competitive Class 5-2A conference.
“I expect Miles to be a very strong presence for our team on offense and defense,” Conway Christian Head Coach Austin Trembley said. “Not many teams in our classification have a player with Miles’ size, skill and athleticism. He is a consistent scorer who gives great effort and is a game changer for our defense with his rebounding and shot-blocking ability.”
Boasting a 3.9 GPA, Dickinson plans to attend medical school with dreams of becoming a surgeon.
“I would like to thank my parents, coaches, trainers and teammates for helping me get to where I am today,” he said. “If I could say anything to future student-athletes, I would tell them to take it all in while they can because it can all be gone so fast.”
