Junior Jazz Members Get To Meet NBA Players
Posted by Nancy on July 27, 2010
It turns out that the Junior Jazz is the NBA’s largest and longest-running youth basketball league in the country. That is quite a distinction. This year, for the 26th time, the Jazz organization makes it possible for young players to meet some of their heroes who are members of the teaml Selected players are chosen to tour a 5 state, 4,000 mile area over the course of a two and a half week period (starting July 26) to meet, instruct and sign autographs for their young, aspiring fans. This is a real thrill for these young players who typically live long distances from Salt Lake City where the Jazz play their home games. Jazz president, Randy believes that it is important to give back to the community who supports the team so well and this is one way of doing just that. This year, Jeremy Evans who is the Jazz’s second-round draft pick will be part of the tour. Evans is contending for a spot on the roster and Rigby feels that his inclusion on the tour will allow him to become better acquainted with the team and the fans.
