No matter the opponent, every game Clauser is determined to give it his all.
Clauser is going all out.
The motor is always at full throttle whenever Clauser steps between the lines.

Clauser has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the court. Clauser tells why he enjoys the game of basketball so much.
“What I love most about playing is just being competitive and winning games,” Clauser said. “That’s obviously important, but I love just going out and getting buckets and shutting someone down. It’s the best “

“Playing ball made me realize this is something I want to do for the rest of my life and I’ve got to keep working hard to do so,” Clauser said.
