Reese Glover, son of John and Debbie Glover, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week.
He is a senior at Franklin High School and a member of the Varsity Boys Basketball Team.
He plays the positions of shooting guard and point guard. He said that this season, the biggest highlight for him was beating Brentwood—one of FHS’s main competitors.
Glover said that his brothers’ success playing basketball at FHS inspired him to try. From then on, he has loved the sport.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he only had to use one word: winning.
Head Coach Darrin Joines said of Glover, “Reese Glover led Franklin High School to two wins last week over Region foe Hillsboro and District rival Brentwood. Glover, a senior guard, led the Rebels in scoring with 35 against Brentwood.”
One of his biggest role models is professional basketball player Steph Curry. He said he really admires the way he plays the game.
After graduating from FHS, he is planning to go to Missouri Western State University. One day, he hopes to become a basketball coach.
