As I expand my basketball coverage of players. I definitely want to make sure I keep it original and authentic. As I keep telling people this publication is about players!
Their is a new generation of ball players on the rise in Las Vegas. I will continue to cover high school players that don’t get the recognition that’s deserve.
Had an opportunity to check out the JBA League. A brand of basketball that is filled with young talented players, who are looking for an opportunity to showcase their skills.
Las Vegas has one of their own 6’6 Guard Jerrel Springer who plays for the Seattle Ballers. In his first two games he is putting up eye-popping stats that can’t go unnoticed. This young man finished with 23 pts 15 reb and 6 ast in his 1st game, 2nd game 48 pts 11 reb and 5 ast.
I can honestly say I am extremely happy to sit back and write this article on a young man that has faced some adversity over the last few years. In 2017 Mr. Springer had to sit out his final high school basketball season due to a transfer rule in Nevada. He never cracked under pressure and kept a positive attitude. Earlier this year he lost his father, who played a big part in his life.
Jerrel has a very charismatic attitude and a upbeat spirit. He is definitely a competitor that loves the game of basketball.
Not long ago this young man was one of the top recruits in the city of Las Vegas he held offers from BYU, Utah, and Southern Mississippi. I keep telling young people everyone’s road to success is different. This young man is definitely one of the faces of this new league that is on the up rise.
Basketball is an international game! Believe me when I tell you, there are some agents that are sitting back looking for players like Jerrel Springer.
I will say to all the naysayers respect another man’s Hustle! Because Game recognize Game!
