Perham’s been one of the top teams in the state each of the last two seasons and figures to be towards the top of the charts again this upcoming winter. A big reason why is forward Josh Jeziorski.
Jeziorski, a 6-foot-4 combo forward, spent the grassroots season with Comets-De Los Reyes, where he had the chance to hone his game against top-end competition practically every weekend.
“It started a little slow with a bunch of new guys,” said Jeziorski said of the AAU season. “Took us a while to get used to playing together. But as the year went on we progressed really well, got some good wins in good tournaments. We went 5-1 in Vegas to end the year on a good note.”
Jeziorski made his mark using his size and athletic ability effectively as a slasher and shot-creator. His ability to contribute in a multitude of ways makes him easy to play with and hard to take off the floor no matter the lineup combinations.
“The goal was to get the ball up the floor, get it to our big guys and play inside out,” Jeziorski said. “I’m a pass-first guy but if I have an open shot I will take it. I think I can drive and can finish inside. I can handle the ball. I need to work on not being hesitant and maybe moving the ball a little quicker at times.”
Jeziorski has drawn a lot of interest from local colleges in Minnesota and North Dakota. He recently attended an elite camp at Bemidji and is in the process of taking visits with other schools.
“I’m hoping the Bemidji camp can help put me in their minds a little bit,” said Jeziorski. “I’ve taken two visits to Jamestown and Crookston. They both offered so I’ve got two offers. Still planning on taking more visits.”
