Jack Thurman, son of Gay and Doug Thurman, is this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty male Athlete of the Week.
He is a senior at Brentwood High School and a member of the Varsity Boys Basketball Team.
He plays the position of guard for the team. This season, he scored 25 points against West Creek, an achievement he is very proud of.
Thurman said he started playing basketball in elementary school and has been in love with the game ever since.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “[I have a] very high expectation for myself to be the best player possible.
When he’s not on the court, he enjoys playing video games and listening to music.
“Jack Thurman is the pre-season Co-MVP in the district. He is leading our team in points, and he was recently named to the all tournament team at the Father Ryan tournament. Jack is a very talented young man, and I am very proud of him!”
After graduating this spring, he plans to continue his basketball career in college. He is currently undecided where he will attend.
