JBA League

Harrison Rieger has Something to Prove at Philly JBA Tryouts


The JBA League is set to make its 7th stop when it pulls into the city of brotherly love tomorrow. With teams from Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Chicago already assembled, LaVar Ball and the Big Baller Brand will roll into Fidonce Sports Center looking for the best Philadelphia has to offer.

One of those hopefuls is former Moorestown High School standout, Harrison Rieger, who believes he has just what LaVar and the committee is looking for. Harrison took some time out to speak with Fresh Sports Talk before his tryout tomorrow.

What went into your decision to try out for the JBA League?

Harrison Reiger: I heard about it when it first came out and I thought it would be cool. Then I heard more and more about it and some people were saying I wouldn’t have a career in basketball, so I want to prove them wrong.

What are you hoping to bring to the JBA if you make it?

I hope to bring versatility, excitement, jump out the gym mentality, and a team player attitude.

What part of your game are you looking to showcase?

I want to be able to show white people can jump too [laughs]. Also, lockdown defense and high IQ basketball.

How do you feel about possibly wearing Big Baller Brand gear in the JBA League?

It would be awesome to wear their stuff all the time. Get [your] merch!

What do you want LaVar Ball to know about you before you try out?

I want LaVar to know that I am a very smart basketball player who can help any team out because losing isn’t an option [for] me.

What are you most looking forward to in the tryouts tomorrow?

I’m most looking forward to being able to show what I can bring to the table whether it’s offense or defense and hopefully get my name called and have my dreams of becoming a pro basketball player come true.

Harrison, like the players before him will have his opportunity to be a part of history with the JBA League.
