My name is Jaxon Marine. I have wanted to play college basketball from a very young age and I have always been motivated to reach my dreams. I set goals for myself to play at a higher level early in my life. When I was in 8th grade I started every game for JV. Entering my freshman year I thought I had the chance to start varsity. I was able to make varsity, but I saw limited action in my first 20 games. During this time I was not discouraged, I continued to work tirelessly in practice to prove I could make a difference on varsity. I was able to prove to my varsity coaches that not only do I belong, but earned significant playing time the last 7 games of the season starting the last 4 games my freshman year that ended February 2019. I am working hard on my AAU team and with trainers to improve my game and I am looking forward to my sophomore season. I currently have a 3.4 GPA, and by the end of high school I aim to be higher than this as I have been traditionally close to a 4.0 student.
