Freshman guard, Jerry D. Willis, of the Jefferson Community College (JCC) men’s basketball team was named JCC athlete of the week for the week ending February 24, 2018. JCC's athlete of the week program is sponsored by Victory Promotions and Under Armour.
Jerry, a 2016 graduate of Warren Mott High School, is majoring in Individual Studies at Jefferson. Willis’ accomplishments on the court this past week include being one of the most consistent players for the team. The last week of the season saw the Cannoneers needing to win 2 of 3 games to make the playoffs, due in part to Jerry, Jefferson fulfilled that mission. Against Tompkins Cortland Community College, he scored 16 points and was his consistent self, with the season coming down to one last possession. Jerry would rebound the ball, go the length of the court, and hit the game-winning 3 pointer from over 30 feet to propel the Cannoneers to a one point win!
