Each year in this city we have promising young people head off to college and Parkside is no exception. In fact it’s a little special this year as the 4200 block of Viola Street’s own Jai Williams heads off to College.
Jai, is something of a local star with his talented skills in Basketball. Jai Williams was easily one of the best high school basketball players in the city. Williams, is a 6-foot-7, 240 pound recent graduate ofPhiladelphia Electrical & Technology Charter’s basketball team.
He’s a tremendous player who recently made the decision that he’s taking his “game” to the Saint Joseph’s Hawks team. “I feel really good about the decision,” Williams said. “I like Saint Joseph’s The School is not too far from my house. I live in West Philly. I can stay in touch with my family.”
Already spending the summer on Saint Joseph’s campus and experiencing a brief stint overseas in Italy Jai, is well prepared for an outstanding college career. We look forward to seeing the wonderful things the future holds in store for this promising Viola Street graduate. We wish you all the best Jai!!
