Diary Of A Baller: Jalen Cone (Kernersville, NC) Final Entry

Jalen Cone On The Road 

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward. Martin Luther King Jr. "Happy Birthday Dr. King, we honor you on today!!! 

This week is an exciting week for our HPCA basketball team. We play the #1 team in the country, Chino Hills, at 5pm on ESPNU. Tune in all day to see some of the best high school talent in the country. 

This Thursday we play our cross town rivals, Wesleyan Christian Academy at our place. This is a big week for us, but we have to take it one game at a time, stay focused and be patient. If we listen to our coaches we will end up on top. 

This game is going to sell out so if you are in the area, get your tickets early!!! I want to give a big shout out to the big guy on our team, Edrice "Bam" Adebayo. He made the East McDonald's All American Game. He deserves this great opportunity. He's a hard worker and he is also a University of Kentucky commit. I also want to give a big shout out to my big bros Ty Graves and Michal Seals for making me better and teaching me through this whole season. Ty is a Boston College commit and Michal will choose later this year on where he will be attending. They were both nominated for the McDonald's All American game which is a huge honor. Also, thank you to my coaches from HPCA on giving me all of these great opportunities as an eighth grader. 

I want to give my Basketball Spotlight family a big THANKS for giving me this great opportunity to do these Diary of a Baller entries. I am truly BLESSED!!! 

Always Remember to Keep God #1 in your life! He will always lead you the right way! -Proverbs 3:5-6
