Posted On: 06/12/18 8:00 AM

Winning and hard work. That’s what Jalen Fayson is all about. The athletic 6-foot-5, 185-pound forward from Foster High School in Tukwila has been doing that for Washington Supreme on the AAU circuit this spring and he recently showed off some of his skills as the Rose City Showcase.

On opening night of the tournament, Fayson was able to hit some mid-range jumpers, grab rebounds both in and outside of his area, and impressive block some shots. It’s all been a part of what has been a solid spring AAU season for him.

“It’s been good but I’ve just got to keep on working,” Fayson said. “Shots, getting rebounds, more defensive things – stuff like that. The mid-range has always been part of my game, but I’m working on driving to the basket more.”

On the recruiting front, Foster is currently hearing from a variety of schools, notably Montana, Fresno State, and Pacific Lutheran. He’s currently wide open with things as the summer plays out. “I’m hoping to get more,” Fayson said. “I’m looking for effort, intensity, and the will to win (in a program). Not many people want to win like I want to win. I try to give my effort and my all to help my team win.”

The bottom line is that Fayson just wants to play. And he’ll do what it takes to get in the victory column. “I just want to keep working, that’s it,” he said.
