Under Armour Menís Basketball Player of the Week Ė Week 8
GIO JACKSON • EVERETT
SOPHOMORE • GUARD
Gio Jackson, Todd Beamer HS / Federal Way, WA., helped the 2nd-ranked Trojans to a pair of wins over Bellevue and sixth-ranked Edmonds. Jackson averaged 24.5 points per game and shot a terrific 15-16 (93.8%) from the charity stripe. He also tallied 22 rebounds, 13 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks.
"Gio is our leader on and off the floor," said Everett head coach Mike Trautman. "He doesn't take possessions off and attacks the rims as well as anyone in the NWAC. He is currently 4th in the NWAC in rebounding at 8.9 rebounds a game, as a 5'10 PG. His rebounding along with excellent on ball defense, helps our team get stops. Off the floor, Gio is a good student in the Engineering department and the student athletic coordinator for Student Life."
