Jimmer Fredette And Talor Battle High School Footage [VIDEO]
Tonight, Jimmer Fredette will become a professional basketball player as the NBA Draft is taking place down at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.
We don’t know where Jimmer will go but we do know where he came from. The Capital Region.
Before Jimmer earned All-American status and every Player of the Year Award imaginable at BYU, he was playing high school hoops for Glens Falls.
Jimmer led the Indians to the 2007 Class “A” State Championship game. He left the Indians as Section II’s all-time leading scorer.
During my television days at WTEN-TV, I hosted a weekly high school basketball show on WTEN-TV called Friday Night Frenzy. Back in March of 2007, Jimmer Fredette and Bishop Maginn graduate Talor Battle both received the 2006-07 Co-Player of the Year Awards.
While Jimmer was “teaching people how to Jimmer” at BYU, Talor Battle was putting the Penn State basketball program on the map. Battle finished his college career as the Nitany Lions all-time leading scorer.
It’s pretty ironic that both of these former Section II basketball players could hear their names called on NBA Draft night.
