If big Jessie gets the pass deep in the paint for AVC, it will take four players to stop his move to the basket.  Add to that, he has great hands and a beast in rebounding. and getting a accurate outlet pass to his team mates. 

There is no question that Burns has improved dramatically over the summer and fall.  He has improved his footwork, his confidence in using his size and understanding the half court sets for big men.

He continues to work hard on improving his conditioning and on his academics.  He has learned a great deal from his fellow Big’s; , Ace Warren, 6’10”, Will Harold, 6’8”, Jailan Gill, 6’7”. 

Expect to see the “man mountain” be regularly inserted into the rotations to give AVC size and strength and his team mates a blow.  The good part?  You will lose very little when Jessie comes in and even less as the season progresses.
