The Jackson Timberwolves from Everett are riding a terrific trio of junior big guns to an undefeated season so far. The T-Wolves are rolling along at 22-0 on the season, heading into this weekends Wesco 4A district championship tussle with Arlington. Jackson is sitting at #3 in the state 4A polls.
The Wolves trio of junior stars includes Jason Todd, a 6’5” jack of all trades swing-man who can play anywhere on the gymnasium floor. Todd is currently ripping the nets for 23 points a ball game. With his nifty versatility he adds 9 rebounds and 4 assists a contest.
Todd is a three year starter at Jackson. Last season he was a 1st team All-Wesco selection. He led the Timberwolves to the state tournament, where he was a 2nd team All-State tournament choice. The silky smooth sensation was also a 2nd team All-State 4A pick last winter as a super sophomore.
Fellow junior guard Dan Kingma, is a sharp shooting 5’10” marksman, who can score from anywhere on the court. The long range bomber is currently averaging 13 points and 4 assists a contest for the T-Wolves. Downtown Danny was a 2nd team All-Wesco South choice last season for the Jackson round-ball five.
The final piece to this hardwood puzzle has been the emergence of high flying junior forward Brian Zehr. Mostly a reserve baller last winter, Zehr has upped his game big time this year.
The 6’4” jumping jack is pumping in 12 points and grabbing 6 boards a game for the Wolfpack.
Both Todd and Kingma follow a long lineage of ball players at Jackson high school. Todd’s sister Ashley played softball at Penn State, while his brother Ryan is currently hooping at Seattle Pacific University. Kingma’s sister Kristi is currently a starting guard at the University of Washington, while his brother Brett is currently red-shirting for the WSU hoop squad.
For the Jackson boys to make a run at state they will have deal with state’s top two guns in Kingco powerhouses Garfield and Bothell, both senior laden squads with lots of firepower.
