LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – It’s 6 Sports Player of the Week night and tonight’s honoree comes from a local high school basketball team with lots of hops these days chasing CAAC Blue leader East Lansing.
Congratulations Jamyrin Jackson, 6 Sports prep Player of the Week for the Lansing Everett Vikings.
Jamyrin Jackson is a stud and when this senior guard is on, as he was last Friday night, he can’t be stopped.
Against crosstown rival Sexton Jackson scored 18 points then had 21 points Tuesday night against Okemos.
He hits big shots when Everett coach Desmond Ferguson needs them.
Jamyrin plays in the same gym Earvin Johnson use to star in and J.J. remembers meeting the Magic Man “It was like a ceremony that the city of Lansing did for him when he was down here and we met him not as like the basketball team but I did meet him,” explained Jackson. “The way he approaches you like you’re a regular person. He doesn’t separate himself as like a celebrity to a regular citizen. He talks to you like he’s met you before.”
