To whom it may concern,

I have had the privilege of coaching Jonathan during his development stages playing basketball. His eagerness to learn and develop quickly is much to do with his work ethic. His rebounding and shot blocking abilities to go along with his skilled footwork makes him a can’t miss prospect. He comes from a great family and that is very much reflected on his coachability. His size and length and natural ability to change opponents shots makes him a very valuable defender. Please consider my recommendation on for Jonathan Stevens furthering his playing career.

Thank You,

Coach Keaton Warner

To Whom it may concern,

My name is Nick Weaver and I am Jon Steven’s high school basketball coach. Jon Steven’s has been a team captain for me for over a year and a team leader. This means he has been picked to lead his group of boys because he exemplifies leadership qualities along with being an outstanding basketball player. This also means the other boys on the team look up to Jon and take his lead on and off the court. He is a player I trust too lead this group of boys.

Jon is a 6’7 2-3 man who can shoot the 3 ball and shoots it at a 48% rating. Jon can score off the dribble or attacking the basket at will. He is our teams best rebounder and most consistent defender. He is our teams best one on one defender and help side defender. Jon averages over 14 ppg and 13 rpg. He is a mid level DIVISION 1 player and will be a huge asset to who ever lands him. Jon lead the team in double doubles last year with 13 of them. Jon Stevens is a great all around basketball player.

Jon is an outstanding person , so humble and hardworking. He is always on time and never makes excuses for his failures. He puts in a lot of work and is such a great kid. He is very trust worthy and such a blessing to our program. He will be greatly missed when he is gone. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at or (623)363-9060.
