I’m Jaakko Juusela, a basketball player from Finland, Class of 2021. I play for the Youth National Team in Finland. I go to Mäkelänrinne Sports High School in Helsinki, and my basketball team is HBA-Märsky (Helsinki Basketball Academy).
I will be joining Wilbraham and Monson Academy for the season of 2020-2021 as a post graduate student.
I play point guard and I have always been a true team player. My strenghts on the court are leading the team and getting open shots for my team mates. I go hard on defense and I can defend in multiple positions. I also score behind the 3pt line and I can attack the basket.
I see my future in playing for a good Div 1 college basketball team. I see myself increasing student diversity, mutual understanding and athletic talent for my team at College. I am very motivated in developing on all my skills.
My plan B is to study business at college.
