Adams, a 6-2 guard, comes to Jessup to study Biology with career plans of becoming a doctor. In his spare time, Adams enjoys playing both video and board games, he is also passionate about cooking. Key reasoning in choosing Jessup was in large part to Adams’ goals aligning with that of the coaching staff.
Marcus Hansen | Sierra College
Sacramento native Marcus Hansen joins Jessup Basketball having previously attended local Sierra College. A graduate of Foothill High School, Hansen played three-years of varsity basketball for the Mustangs. With Foothill, Hansen won both a section and league title, along with three All-League Award honors.
With hopes of one day being a basketball coach himself, Hansen will study Liberal Studies while attending Jessup. Hansen is into gaming and collecting sneakers. His reasoning towards coming to Jessup was to further his knowledge and relationship with the Lord.
Nathan Flores | Yuba City High School
Freshman guard Nathan Flores comes to Jessup having spent the last two seasons on the varsity squad at Yuba City High School. A Yuba City, CA native, Flores was named First Team All-League twice.
Choosing to study Business, Flores has the career plan of one day becoming a CEO. In spare time, Flores is into cars and spending time with friends. The opportunity to play basketball while earning his degree and bettering his relationship with God are the reasons behind Flores’ choice of Jessup.
Jaden Henderson | Antelope High School
A graduate of Antelope High School in Sacramento, guard Jaden Henderson was named team MVP and First Team All-Conference during his high school career. Standing at 6-3, Henderson served as a team captain in his two-year varsity tenure with the Titans.
Henderson will study Business, hoping to either become a firefighter or a youth pastor one day. With hobbies of reading the Bible, spending time with friends, and helping his community, Henderson chose Jessup to further his faith and become a better basketball player.
Tim Strijaous | Sacramento City College
At forward, Tim Strijaous brings a year of play at the community college level along with three years of high school varsity basketball to Jessup. Strijaous averaged 11.8 PPG and 9.6 RPG with Sacramento City College last season. Playing his high school ball at Antelope High School as well, Strijaous set both a single-game and season rebounding record while earning First Team All-League honors.
Entering with a major in Biblical Studies, Strijaous hopes to use his time here at Jessup to one day become a pastor. Tim is passionate about Bible study and chose to study at Jessup to be closer to God.”
It’s more than a jab step, more a misdirection, and actually lifesaving.
