Jessie Burns1A graduate of Lancaster High School in 2016 where he played the post position and scored 6.7 ppg and pulled down 9.7 rebounds per game. 

Burns has surprising good skills in the paint for his age and is a powerful rebounder.  He is willing to learn and has already picked up a great deal this summer working out in the weight room, on the track and most importantly working with  22 year old 6’10”, 265 “Ace” Warren.  He has learned that to survive he is going to have learn new skills and not just to rely on his size and strength. 

Jessie knows that he has much to learn to reach his goals and he believes he is a very hard worker who just won’t quit.    Here are two key areas that he must succeed in at the college level;

  1. Put in the work on the floor, track and the weight room.  Game speed at all times.
  2. He knows how critical it is going to be to get serious about Jessie Burns3his academics.  Not grades, no play!

Jessie made a great choice choosing Antelope Valley College to prepare him for his goal of playing D-1 basketball and beyond .

He will be playing with top JUCO talent and coaching.  He is finding playing with the best makes him the best as well.
