Kayon Mayers Goes JUCO to Join Harford Fighting Owls
Toronto, ON–After starting off his high school basketball career in Mississauga, Ontario with Loyola, Kayon Mayers attended Boston Trinity Academy where he posted 16, 7, and 3 and lead his team in almost every category. Unfortunately his efforts were not enough to give the BTA Lions a winning season as they finished with a 6-16 record.
Mayers is looking to leave the frustration from last season behind and start a blank slate this year with the Harford Fighting Owls in Maryland.
Kayon has been waiting for the opportunity to display his skill set against a pool of major talent and now that chance has been granted. He will be matching up against the top talents in Division one of the NJCAA.
On a team that carries mainly freshman, Mayers is amped to come in and provide intensity on both ends of the floor in order to earn a starting position.
His mid-range shooting as well as his handles are areas of his game that have improved throughout the last two years, however Mayers is not satisfied and looks to take his game to the next level.
“It’s a whole new season with a new team and I know that I have to go in there and earn everything. It’s going to be a tough, competitive season but I know that I’m going to work hard to make sure that I can help my team win”.
This JUCO freshman has added a great deal of versatility to his game as he went from being a scorer that was purely a slasher to a guard that can open up the floor by connecting from deep and hitting the midrange.
Key components that will help Mayers take his game to the next level are; tightening his dribble sequence and adding a few offensive go-to moves to his arsenal.
