High School Athlete of the Week - Jermecya "Brianna" Harris of Blount HS

PRICHARD, Ala. - "She doesn't do it just on the court, she takes pride in her class work as well. She just exudes how to carry herself as a young lady and I'm glad she's our captain," said Blount Girls Basketball Coach Kimyatta Perry.

"It's kind of like a sisterhood so I'm the big sister and it's something I have to do to get them where they need to be also," said Jermecya "Brianna" Harris.

Harris is averaging 22 points per game and has been the catalyst behind Blount's fast start. She has her eyes on the big prize.

"I'm trying to my team back to state, it's a bittersweet feeling not winning. It's a lot of hard work and dedication," said Harris.

She can take over a game at a moments notice.

"Several times this season she's' been able to do that for us, a couple of times. Just her energy on the court, it's like having a mini coach on the court with her," said Coach Perry.

And may have to with a big matchup against LeFlore just 24 hours away.

"Go out and play hard, focus on us. Making sure we're executing and doing the things we do best. Making sure we take care of the basketball," said Coach Perry.
