One On One Feat. Jacob Valero (San Antonio, Texas)

Most youngsters practice buzzer beaters all day in the park or their local gym. It’s like a dream for a player to actually make one of these shots during the game. Jacob Valero dreams became reality against the Cincinnati Lakers at this year’s 12U Nationals. In the closing moments Valero got a steal and nailed a trey off the glass as the buzzer sounded. We got a chance to talk to the Texas native after his game and here’s our One On One.
