Brody Jones and Landon Davis are two seventh-graders playing for the West Jessamine Middle School basketball team and can’t wait for this year’s season. 

The 13-year-olds, who both play the guard position, have high expectations for this year and think that this years team will be pretty good. 

“Our defense is like no other, ¨ Jones says. ¨ I love our team, we are family.”

Both players go on to say they love the coaches and wouldn’t trade this team for the world.

“This year will be fun, ¨ Davis said. 

There are some changes that COVID-19 has brought about that not everyone is in favor of. One of those is having two teams as opposed to each grade level having a team.     

“I think the A and B team idea isn’t very smart,” Jones said. 

The season is slated to start in early November.
