Interview with Keion Brooks Jr.


Keion pondering how to make up for missing prom.

Question: Talk about the honor of winning MVP in your home session. How did that feel?

Keion Brooks Jr: That’s a great honor. Being ‘third team’ the week before, I felt like I had to come out and defend home turf. I just tried to play as hard as I can, and it was an honor to be rewarded with the MVP.

Q: Do you feel like you have a target on your back?

KBJ: Absolutely. A lot of these guys are trying to make MVP, make first team, things like that. For me, it’s an honor that guys know who I am.

Q: Tell us about the recruiting process.

KBJ: The recruiting process has been fun. I try not to take it for granted, because everyone would love to be where I’m at, getting the calls and offers I’ve received. So I just try to take it day by day and not take it for granted.

Q: Last time we talked, you said you weren’t able to take your girlfriend to prom this year. What did you do to make up for it?

KBJ: (laughs) Uh, nothing right now, I’m still kind of in the doghouse. I got something coming, I’m working on something to get myself out of that hole.

Q: What excites you about your team?

KBJ: I think we show a lot of resilience. I love how resilient this team is, and how we fight.
