Jesse Burns, 6’8″, 275, Sophomore

Jesse Burns, 6’8″, 275, arrived at AVC from Lancaster High School last year where he faced two main challenges; 1. College academics, 2. Carrying well over 300 pounds up and down the basketball court.

Lets take a look at how Jesse has handled  these challenges;

  1. College Academics…Jesse is attending his classes, he is passing his classes and continues his eligibility to play basketball and heading for his AA degree and a university scholarship.  Congratulations.
  2. Physical Conditioning…Burns will never be a quick emaciated big man but when you cut minutes off your mile runs and knock off 50 pounds while adding muscle and strength, things are going well, thank you.

Add to all of that, big Jess has gained skills and experience on the basketball floor.  He is working well with his new big team-mate Jamar Kemp, 6’8″, 300 in sharing the paint on both ends of the floor.  This could be Jesse’s break out year.
