Seon Jack
As the upcoming APBL season approaches, we will begin to highlight the Manhattan Pride roster, one player at a time.

Todays highlighted player is Seon Jack (6'1''-G), a 6'1" guard from Brooklyn. Jack began his collegiate career at Borough of Manhattan Community College during the 2006-07 season. He then joined NYU-Poly during the 2008-09 season and finished his collegiate career with the Fighting Blue Jays.

1. Where and for what teams have you played for throughout your professional career?

The Manhattan Pride is the only team I've played for in my professional career.

2. How long have you been with the Manhattan Pride and what is your role with the team?

I am a sophomore with the Manhattan Pride franchise; this is going to be my ninth month on the team. I have always been interested in the team from first time I heard about it. When they first got started last year around this time, I told Will [team owner] that if he needs any practice players to scrimmage against, don't hesitate to give me a ring. Then during the Christmas break, the team underwent some changes and I got the call.

As for my role on the team, I have more of a defensive and pass first mindset. I like to guard the main ball handler on the opposing squad. I would pick the ball handler up full court to get a feel of his speed, quickness, and ball handling capabilities. Depending on how good he is, I would know how to play him in the half court setting. I can play both guard positions comfortably but I like to play the point position because that way I am able to create more.

3. What do you hope to accomplish as a member of the Manhattan Pride this season? And, where do you ultimately hope to advance to next in your basketball career?

Personally I'd like to average around 10 points, six assists, five rebounds, and three steals for the season. The 10 points is not difficult, but the assists, rebounds and steals would bring the bigger challenge. And overall I hope that there are no injuries or circumstances that would cause anyone to miss any games so that at worst we would be a .500 team.

Like everyone who plays this sport competitively I would like to play at the highest level whether it is in the U.S, Europe, or Asia.

4. Have you thought about life after playing professional basketball? If so, what are your plans once your playing career is completed?

Ive never really given it any kind of serious thought. I work in the construction industry, so I guess as my involvement in professional basketball become less, my involvement in that industry will become more.

Beltway Bombers - 4 months ago
The 2X American Professional Basketball League (APBL) champion Beltway Bombers do not use the the "defending ". Bombers CEO and Head Coach Chaz Dudley has instructed his players and assistant coaches to not say defending champs. "It connotates a defensive posture" says Coach Chaz. "What we accomplished last year in winning our 2nd APBL chip was a great achivement, but this season is a new journey. We are not defending, we instead are aggressively pursuing our 3rd". While the Bombers are d...   [read more]
