Dwight Carver

Dwight Carver grew up along the coast of Maine knowing the virtue of hard work and determination. His journey to basketball greatness brought notoriety and honor to his tiny school, Jonesport-Beals High School. Isolated from the larger towns and cities in Maine, this tiny hamlet produced one great player after another over the decades of 1970 and 1980. Dwight was the prototype for those who followed him. As the leader for the Royals, Dwight was an All-State player in 1972 and 1973. His exploits propelled Jonesport-Beals, to five straight Class D boys’ titles from 1970 to 1974. Carver set a tourney record in 1970, making 17 free throws in a game. His daughters — Sandi, Kristi and Tricia — also starred for the Royals. Fifty years later, Dwight continues to live in the Jonesport area with his family.
