Jack Emerson, son of Scott and Missy Emerson, is our Jet’s Pizza Male Athlete of the Week.
He is a senior at Page High School and a member of the varsity boys basketball team. He plays point guard for the team and said one of his biggest highlights this season was scoring 26 points against Independence.
“I got my first basketball hoop in kindergarten,” Emerson said of his start in the sport.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said that he owes it to his grandfather.
“He was just like me in high school and I strive to beat all his records,” Emerson said.
One of his biggest role models is professional basketball player, Lonzo Ball. He said he really admires and likes the way that he plays the game.
After graduating from PHS this spring, he said he plans to attend The University of Mississippi to further his academic career.
