GIO JACKSON • EVERETT
SOPHOMORE • GUARD
Gio Jackson, Todd Beamer HS / Federal Way, WA., earned his second Player of the Week selection this season in a pair of road wins over North Region playoff contenders Bellevue and Edmonds. Jackson first stunned the Bulldogs with a triple-double 26 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists followed by his 21 point, 12 rebound double-double against Edmonds. The top-ranked Trojans bested their record to 10-1 in the North and 22-4 overall.
"Gio lead our team to two important North region wins to secure a #1 seed for the NWAC tournament," said Trojan head coach Mike Trautman. "He plays with such speed on offense with the ball in his hands and has the ability to get to the rim, or find his teammates with an assist. His rebounding numbers really show how hungry he is to win basketball games. Gio is been picking up a ton of interest from schools at the next level over the past month."
