BLACK STAR SPORTS ~ “Sky High Bruin”- Mr. Jayden Hands

Future UCLA Bruin, Jaylen Hands ‘gots boosties’ as is called those with ‘hops’ (superior jumping ability) by those that have played basketball at a competitive level or with those that have ‘competed’.

My folks’ son can “Sky High”, but does he win the dunk contest of All-AMERICANS?
Whatever the outcome, happy he will be in Westwood retracing my hoop steps and scoring WAY MORE THAN I HAVE SCORED in the Wooden Center and even a game-winning three-pointer in Pauley Pavillion 🙂 yup!

Of course it was only an intramural level game-winner during my 30s. As I was out of shape from focusing on EARNING my doctorate in Urban Planning. Haha.

I thought of myself as an intramural ‘Boris Diaw’ :-/ Meaning way more game than I looked like I had, ijs, well at least in my mind.
But seriously, Jaylen has boosties!

BLACK STAR SPORTS ~ Jaylen Hands is UCLA bound!

I am very excited that the child of an undergraduate friend in Jaylen Hands, son of Ronnie and Ashanti Hands  IS UCLA BOUND! Ashanti is a fellow UC San Diego Triton !

Well first of all, CONGRATULATIONS and well done.

Over the years I vaguely recall his birth from a distance and more recently had heard about the prowess of Jaylen, the son of Ronnie, a former ball player that played pickup with my UCSD folks.

Dope video and continued success!

Go Bruins!!!
