WATCH: Reed Sheppard dunks on competition at AAU event

By now, you’ve probably heard the name Reed Sheppard. The 16-year-old son of former Kentucky Basketball great Jeff Sheppard and former UK Hoops star Stacey Reed is making a name for himself at North Laurel High School and also plays for Indy Heat in the EYBL circuit. Over the weekend, Sheppard turned heads at an AAU event with back-to-back dunks that will have you flashing back to his dad’s playing days.

Just like dad, right?

Here’s more footage of Sheppard stealing the ball and driving the lane for a left-handed layup:

Back in February, Sheppard had a quadruple-double in North Laurel’s win over Jackson County, putting up 24 points, 10 rebounds, 14 assists, and 10 steals. He started for the Jaguars as an eighth grader and has already surpassed the 1,000-point mark in his career. Pretty impressive for a kid who will only be a sophomore this fall. Here’s hoping he ends up in Kentucky blue like his mom and dad one day.

    Refs called a T on Jeff’s two-handed dunk. Awful call.

    Considering his dad hates Cal, probably not going to happen.

      He’s a heckuva athlete and I’d love to see him come to Lex but I agree that it probably won’t happen.

    Jeff had a dunk against Indiana in December of 97 that was one of the all time greats.
