The 6-foot-3, 180-pound senior forward scored 39 goals and passed for 13 assists this past season, leading the Broncos (22-1-2) to the Conference 6A state championship game. Clemmensen recorded 14 multi-goal games, including eight in a row to start the season. A two-time First Team All-State selection and the 2018 Conference 6A Player of the Year, he concluded his prep soccer career with 113 goals and 24 assists.
Clemmensen has maintained a B average in the classroom. He has signed a national letter of intent to play soccer on scholarship at the University of California Santa Barbara this fall.
Clemmensen has volunteered locally as a mentor at St. Simon and Jude School and the Andre House, a ministry to the homeless in the Phoenix area. He has also donated his time as a youth soccer coach. “Carter Clemmensen is a big, strong athletic goal-scorer,” said Jeff Perry, head coach of Gilbert High. “He plays very well with his back to goal and finds ways to score. He’s a difference maker because of his ability to put the ball in the net.”
