Placeholder Image
There are a lot of traits needed to be an elite basketball player, but none is greater than being able to put the ball in the basket.Each member of the Southern Standard All-County fifth- and sixth-grade basketball team can score in bunches, especially prolific scorers Jesse Jones and Wesley Jennings.The two high-scoring guards join Dibrell’s Jaeden Pyburn, Irving College’s Luke Martin and Morrison’s Brayton Kelsey to form the first team. Jones, a guard for Eastside, was the only player to average double figures for the season as he finished at 10.6 points per game.Jones had nights where he was unstoppable offensively. Jones posted the highest scoring game of any elementary player on Nov. 10 when he lit up Boyd for 22 points in a Bulldog win.
