Got plans tonight? Cancel them. West Jessamine high school is retiring Jarrod Polson’s jersey before their game against Mercer County. The ceremony begins at 7 p.m., and the game will tip at 7:30 p.m.
Polson graduated from West Jessamine in 2010, and led the Colts to back-to-back 12th Region Championships in 2009 and 2010. He’s West Jessamine’s all-time leading scorer with 1,884 points and was named First Team All-State. Jarrod graduated from UK in May 2013 after only three years with a BA in Business Finance, and is currently pursuing a second degree in Marketing. He was nominated to the AllState Good Works Team, and regularly returns to West Jessamine High and Middle schools to encourage students to do their best academically and be good citizens. Plus, he’s one hell of a point guard.
Here’s a great compilation of highlights from Jarrod’s career, including his monster game against Maryland last season:
Tickets are $5, a small price to pay to honor Wilmore’s finest. Word has it Cal will be in the house, too.
