Diary Of A Baller: Isaiah "Boogie" Briscoe (Union, NJ) Entry #1

Hello basketball world, my name is Isaiah “Boogie” Briscoe, age 14. I received my nickname from my 14u coach Jaden for my handle. My dad name is George and my mom name is Henrietta. I have 3 siblings; Iasia who is 21, George Jr. 20, and Iesha 16. I was born in Newark, New Jersey, and then moved to Union where I currently reside. I’m in the 8th grade at Good Shephard Academy in Irvington where I have a B+ average.

As far as athletics, what else can I say it’s in my blood. My grandfather and father are legends in the greater Newark area. My oldest sister Iasia was a girl’s basketball H.S. All-American at MX Shabazz H.S. in Newark but, SHE IS NOT BETTER THEN ME LOL. She now attends Syracuse University on a basketball scholarship. My brother George played at Long Branch High School. My other sister Iesha participates in Track and Field at Union High School; she holds the county record in shot put. Not too many people know but football has long been my favorite sport, but that all changed two years ago.

In the months to come I will be sharing my world with bballspotlight followers, so stay tuned.

Special shout outs to Kiy Hester, and Playaz Fam
