Jalen Myers Headed To Lone Star State To Play Basketball

MADISON- A dream came true for Jalen Myers as he signed an athletic scholarship to play collegiate basketball. An All-State selection for his senior year of play for the Bob Jones Patriots, Myers chose the Islanders of Texas A&M Corpus Christie and is set for what he hopes is an outstanding college education and basketball success.

The 6-foot-8 Myers chose the Texas school over several others with his dream of playing for a NCAA Div. I program. Myers tallied 18.5 points and 12.6 rebounds per game for the Patriots in his 2019-2020 senior season. His statistics in both scoring and rebounding led the squad through the season where he was chosen among the Class 7A First Team All-State selections.

“I worked hard to get to that point as my father (Herman) and mother (Latoya), along with my athletic trainer and coach (Luther) Tiggs here at Bob Jones gave me all of the support I could need,” said Myers. “I had a very good senior season and I wanted to attend a Div. I program.”

The Div. I Islanders participate in the Southland Conference (SLC) and play their home games at the 8,100 seat capacity American Bank Center. Team colors are a far cry from the red, white and blue of Bob Jones as the Islanders wear royal blue and green.

Myers carries a 3.1 grade point average and is the son of Herman and Latoya Myers.

“My parents have always challenged me to be the best I can be,” said Myers. “The coaches at Corpus Christie recruited me hard from day one and they tell me I have a good chance of starting as a freshman. I feel good about my decision as I put in a lot of work to receive these accolades.”
