Jaguars At A Glance

One of the nation’s top players and one of its best head coaches – 6-6 SR John Petty and legendary nine-time state champion Jack Doss – migrate to a brand new school, named after former space shuttle astronaut Mae Jemison. All eight of the Jaguars’ underclassmen, including 5-9 SR Brandon Crosby, 6-2 SOPH Brandon Nicholas and 6-7 SR Devonte Lanier, have followed from J.O. Johnson, which closed its doors after winning back-to-back Class 5A state titles, and 6-1 SR J.J. Jackson returns from a knee injury. Petty averaged 19.9 points, 7.3 boards and 4.1 assists as a junior, erupting for 32 points in the state final. … Doss has won state titles at Birmingham Hayes (1981, ’82), Butler (2004, ’05, ’07, ’08, ’11) and Johnson (’14, ’15), and coached the East squad in this year’s McDonald’s All-American Game.
