Meet the 2018-19 All-Central New York boys basketball teams

Payton Shumpert (Jamesville-DeWitt)
Class: Junior
Position: Guard/forward

What's next? Playing AAU for New York JayHawks

Best moment of the season: When we won the sectional championship.

Who inspires you? My dad inspires me because he played basketball at Syracuse, and was a big time player. He understands the grind it takes to make it to college and past that. He also takes me and my brother to work out every day and he comes to my Adidas Gauntlet AAU tournament. He supports the team and talks to all the players and helps them -- and me -- become better players.

What's your go-to warm-up song? It depends on what I'm feeling that game. Normally I listen to Jadakiss and Young Jeezy.

The last thing you say before taking the court: I'm always last leaving the locker room with my Beats on and putting tape on my wrist. Before I go out, I sit in my locker and just kinda say, "God, watch over my team and coaches while we go out and play."
