Jenkintown Boys' Basketball Preview

 

JENKINTOWN BOYS' BASKETBALL PREVIEW

Coach:  Wes Emme (9th season)

 Assistant coaches:  Wayne Emme (8thSeason), Jermaine Major (7thSeason), and Ray Crawford (5thSeason)

Last year’s record:  5-18 overall, 2-12 Bicentennial League, Constitution Conference.  Lost Faith Christian in the BAL Playoffs

Key losses:   Trevor Brockwell(1st Team All League), Cade Lafferty(2nd Team All League), Adam Giammanco

Key returnees:  Senior-Guard, CJ Jackmon, Senior-Forward, Jake Haury, Sophomore-Guard Iman Jackson 

Others to watch: Junior-Guard, Jadan Welch, Junior-Guard, Cole Krinvic, Junior-Wing, Will Krinvic, Sophomore-Guard, Jake Hilton, Junior-Forward, Roan McCall

Strengths:  Guard Depth, Team Speed, Player Versatility and Switch-ability, Basketball Lifers

Question marks: Are we going to rebound consistently? Can our speed make up for what we lack in size? Execution down the stretch of games? 

 Outlook: The Jenkintown boys are looking forward to bouncing back from a challenging 2019 season on many fronts. The return of 2019 second leading scorer, CJ Jackmon and bruising forward, Jake Haury, should provide strong foundation for what looks to be a inspired group. Sophomores, Iman Jackson and Jake Hilton, as well as Junior, Roan McCall will be required to take the next step after smaller roles as 9th-10th graders. Brothers, Cole and Will Krinvic will make their debuts after sitting out last season due to PIAA transfer rules. Also, the return of Junior guard, Jadan Welch, should  bolster what looks to be the deepest guard the depth the program has had in several seasons. The Drakes look forward to competing in the ever competitive BAL Constitution Division and vie for a PIAA District 1A Championship.
