Coach Conley's Comments:

I am excited to add a tremendous local student-athlete in Jackson Burdyshaw to our Lake Erie College men's basketball program. Jackson had a great career at Perry, leading his team to a District Championship and earning All-Ohio honors his senior season.  He is a strong athlete that can finish tough physical plays around the basket, but also step outside and shoot the basketball as he made 39 3's this year.  Jackson played three sports during his high school career and I am optimistic about his potential now that his athletic focus shifts to only basketball.
