Coach’s comments: “Joseph is more than an outstanding basketball player. He is a giving young man with a big heart and a great sense of humor. He is loved by his teachers and teammates. JoJo is a role model for our younger players, and he leads by example both on and off the court. As a team, we certainly would not be achieving our level of success without him. Joseph is consistent with his effort and production. I know his teammates and coaches are proud of him for receiving this distinguished recognition.” — San Tan Foothills coach Joe Galish
