J-HAM is not only entertaining on court with her gutsy style of play, she's also a "class act" from all the interviews I've seen.

She's dealing with a chronically gimpy back, but maybe that will motivate her to continue to leave it all on the court (as in the old cliche "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger").

I hope we get to see her play for many years.

Auburn High School is in Auburn, Alabama not Georgia. Excited for Jaime!

Thanks for the clarification Diana. J-Ham has an amazing background. I was bugged by the Georgia reference as most of us think of Auburn in Alabama, but I didn't think fast enough to correct the dots.
