Prep sports roundup: Freshman Jason Crowe Jr. is earning respect

At age 14, Lynwood High freshman guard Jason Crowe Jr. brings back memories of another 14-year-old freshman trying to succeed against hold-back players of his same class – LaMelo Ball of Chino Hills.

It’s a challenge if you’re not that strong coming down the track, but the 6-foot-3 Crowe grew up fighting in the backyard against his father, Jason Crowe Sr., a former professional player and Lynwood head coach. played. Hall of Famer Paul Pierce, who played with Crowe Sr. at Inglewood High, was in the bleachers at Beverly Hills High Monday and ready to offer tips.

“He grew up playing older guys in pickup truck games,” Crowe Sr. said. “I prepared him for bigger and better things.”

Crowe will be heard for the next four seasons. He’s already made a difference, scoring 51 points in one game. Against Oakwood on Monday, he didn’t score in the first quarter and earned a place on the bench alongside his father. Reportedly more aggressive on offense and defense, he responded with 39 points in the last three quarters and helped level the score in the fourth quarter after Lynwood fell 13 points behind.

In the end, Oakwood won 75-67 in an opening game of the Beverly Hills Tournament, but it’s clear that Lynwood has a bright future with five freshmen playing at the varsity.

“He’s a damn good freshman,” said Oakwood coach Steve Smith.

Oakwood has a pretty good guard himself in Junior Ben Eisendrath, who finished with 30 points.
