RLH: Is there a player either in the NBA or college that you model or that people say you play like?

JT: Not really, I think I’m a little more special than everyone else because one game I could have 25 to 30 points then the next game I can have 15-20 rebounds. I just do what I need to do to impact the game and help my team win.

RLH: Tell us more about this past summer and fall AAU season

JT: I played with a bunch of different AAU teams, just wanted to play when I could in the summer. In the Bluegrass Fall League I led the 16u in scoring for majority of the season, but ended up finishing second in scoring.

RLH Give us a preview for your high school season. Also, what role do you play on your high school team?

JT: Last year we made it to the All A state championships and lost to St. Henry by 9 points. I feel like we can make another All A state run. We have potential to win our district, and compete in the regional tournament

RLH: What are some of your hobbies off the court?

JT: I like to hang out with my friends, play 2k, Madden, Call of duty sometimes. I am a homebody, if I am not at the gym or school I’m usually at home. This year I will be the main guy and control the pace of the game. Also, I will be the leader and the go to guy to get points and do what’s needed to get the win.

RLH: What separates you from other Basketball players?

JT:  I have a 3.2 GPA and I work as hard in the classroom as I do playing basketball. I love being in the gym, and I am known for getting a lot of points but I will do what ever it takes to impact the game and help my team win.
