This story can be found in the print version of The Mustang Express.
Senior Jared Turley is very familiar with the game of basketball. When he was a young boy he began to develop a love for basketball and still does to this day. Now it is his senior year which means his last and final year on the Mustang basketball team. For many senior athletes, it is sad when the final year of playing at Sunrise quickly approaches but Turley has a different approach.
“It’s my senior year and I’ll try to make the most out of it,” Turley said.
Given that Turley was raised playing basketball and has been playing since he was six years old, he has accumulated and improved his skills over time. Coach Jason Pasinski has been able to see this happen over the years Turley has been in high school.
“He’s really come a long way and developed into a really solid varsity player,” Pasinski said.
Turley especially has a talent of scoring.
[What makes him stand out is] probably the fact that he can score creatively,” Pasinski said. “He’s very active away from the ball and he moves. He can score a variety of ways; he’s a good shooter. “
The difficulty of juggling school and sports can cause an athlete’s day to become very busy. But to Turley, what makes it all worth it is the chance to be able to play the sport he enjoys the most.
“Every day there is always commitments but I’d rather do basketball than anything else,” Turley said.
Pasinski made it clear that Turley is not only an all around phenomenal player, but he’s a basketball player that works hard and has a great attitude about everything.
