Biography

Evan was heavily pushed toward athletic pursuits throughout his childhood by his father. He took to basketball right away and, thanks to his father’s constant drills, developed a play style based on his quickness and exceptional shooting ability. This style allowed him to dominate most leagues he played in and he participated in various tournaments and national camps throughout high school. On the insistence of his father, he chose the University of Norwood, one of the few schools left in the country without a girl on its basketball team when he committed. In fact, Derrick chose Norwood because the conference has the lowest percentage of female athletes and coaches in the country, and the school being local was a bonus. Evan has a constant need for attention or praise from father figures and strives to make them proud of him, though his father’s praise ranks above the rest. While not agreeing with all of his father’s philosophies about female athletes, he constantly struggles to see women on the court as equals, often underestimating their abilities and trash talking them more than he would male players of the same, or even worse, ability.

This has created much of the rift between himself and his sister, Liana, whose repeated clashes with their father led to her departure from the home when Evan was 16. For the next three years of his life, he blamed the split on his sister for not obeying and blatantly disrespecting their father and he blamed their uncle for aiding Liana by allowing her to stay in his house and encouraging her to continue playing basketball. Getting onto Norwood’s campus and interacting with other female athletes away from his father’s watchful eye and constant stream of opinions has called a lot of his beliefs into question and he struggles to reconcile his father’s opinions with the reality before him.
