Onate High guard Tim Jacobs

Kudos to Onate High School junior guard Tim Jacobs on the Knights boys basketball team. He's a three-year varsity member and he's gotten better with each passing season.

He's had to handle different roles in his time at OHS, sometimes scorer, sometimes running the offense and setting up others. He was a big reason the Knights won a 5A playoff game last year and went to the Pit in Albuquerque and he's a big reason the Knights are a very competitive 10-9 this year.

Jacobs is a young player, he was 13 as a freshman and if I'm not mistaking is just 15 right now. Got to give him credit for developing various skills and being a leader for the Knights. He's really developed into a player who can score in different ways and he sets up his teammates very well. He was very good in Friday's (Jan. 22) win against Las Cruces High. He was patient after a slow start and still wound up with 23 points.
