Jalen Cone (North Carolina)
I am Jalen Cone, Class of 2020, and I would like to give you a glimpse of my life over the next twelve weeks. I live in Kernersville, NC aka “K-Vegas” with my parents Harold and Alicia Cone. I also have three siblings -Drew, Madison and Joy. I attend High Point Christian Academy (HPCA) and I am in the eighth grade. I recently transferred to HPCA two weeks ago. I will be playing varsity basketball with some of the best upperclassman in the country and I am excited to start my season tomorrow.
The most important thing that I want to let you all know is that I am a Christian. I attend church at Triad Christian Center in High Point NC. My pastor is Joshua Lockett, son of late Bishop Otis Lockett Sr. We go to Church on Sundays and Tuesdays. One of my favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3: 5-6. It says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” In other words, God has my back (and yours) and he will take care of you. All you have to do is trust Him!
Finally, my passion is basketball!!! I love the game and I am striving to be one of the best to ever play the game. I work out everyday, sometimes twice a day to get better in the areas of the game that I do not know yet. I am perfecting my craft daily. Part of perfecting my craft is getting my school work done. I know that I am a student first and my total success will come through being successful in every area of my life.
Next week I am going to share my goals for this season with you all...
