Owners Comments

Japhet is a very driven and a hard working individual. His professionalism has been contagious to others on our team and would be a great addition to any professional organization.

Coaches Comments

Japhet is proven ball-player with a professional resume, can run the point and distribute or move over to the sg position and provide scoring, however, Japhet’s strength lies within his defense. He is the epitome of a lock down defender whom can be put on the opposing team’s best player and will shut them down with consistency, understands the game and has a lot of battled-tested experience.
