Jeremiah Jenkins a senior basketball player from Eastern Guilford has been selected to the Burlington Times All-Regional team that was in last Sunday’s edition of the BT. Jenkins is looking to attend Rockingham Community College with hopes of transferring to a Division I school. There has been some interest expressed in JJ by Tennessee Tech, Western Carolina, and possibly N.C. A&T.

After he puts on a few more pounds and hits the weights this 2-A Conference Player of the Year and All-Guilford selection Jeremiah Jenkins may be ready to explode. Jenkins averaged right at 20 points per game this past season and on several occasions he hit the mid and upper 20’s to lead his Wildcat team. JJ connected on 72 three pointers to rank number 6 in the state and with all this success we say GO JEREMIAH JENKINS.

In some other hoops news, Vic Sapp’s AAU 14 and Under team won their 3rd straight state championship this past weekend defeating the Charlotte Royals for the title. Good job again by Vic Sapp and his staff including Justin Smith, Vic’s number one assistant coach.

    Jeremiah Jenkins was a fine, outstanding, and admireable young man. He was respectful, calm-natured and focused on his future goals. He was loved by his family, friends and associates. We are praying for this great lost in the Greensboro Community and in the Milton and Sandra Jenkins Family. May God bless and keep you in His care.
