Sedric Webber - Student Athlete (CofC)
Sedric Webber set a great example of what a student-athlete should be for his roommate, Jermel, at the College of Charleston.
Our next quest is Sedric ‘Webb’ Webber! Webb grew up in the Big Apple and later moved to Columbia SC.
He played the 2-4 with great hands and passing ability. Webb is 1 of only 3 NCAA D-1 players named POTY in 2 different conferences (TAAC/SoCon).
Hear all about the recruitment wars, the college years, the Philippines, Australia and the student-athlete experiences.
John Pearson - High School Coach (Porter-Gaud)
On Episode 11 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, we have Coach John 'JP' Pearson.
Jermel was fortunate enough to work on Coach Pearson's staff for a few years. A very sound and calculated coach, Jermel remembers him talking about how an athlete has to be a “JYD”, Junk Yard Dog, in order to play for him meaning exhausting, relentless effort on the court and competing at a high level all the time.
Coach Pearson has taken Porter-Gaud to national heights, players to major colleges and even the NBA.
Stacy Harris - Student Athlete (CofC)
On Episode 10 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, we have Jermel's college roommate, Stacy 'Big Game' Harris.
Harris shares stories about playing in parks in Alexandria, Virginia growing up, then playing at the College of Charleston, and playing professionally in Sweden.
Growing up Harris didn't stay at his local park. He hunted to find where the good players were. And he didn't take his own crew with him. He showed up at the new park ready to play ball. He gravitated to where the good basketball was.
Ben Betts - Collegiate Coach (Western Carolina)
Coming up on Episode 09 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, we have Jermel's good friend, Coach Ben Betts.
Coach Betts spent 2 of 4 years with Jermel at the College of Charleston. They developed a great bond during that time. After games or on the weekends Jermel would go 'chop it up' with Ben just to be a sponge and soak up knowledge.
Coach Betts drops some of that knowledge in this podcast. TUNE IN!
Melvin Watson - Student Athlete (USC)
In Episode 08 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, Jermel interviews Melvin Watson.
Jermel interviews his main guy… Arguably one of the fastest, most explosive guards that SC produced. Melvin “MW” Watson attended Burke High School in Charleston. Mel & Jermel started playing together in 7th/8th grade “on the Hess, on the Mitch, and at the Boys and Girls Club”.
Tune in Christmas Eve to hear the Burke stories, the student-athlete life, the overseas grind & the life of two Charleston Boys putting in
Chuckie Robinson - Student Athlete (East Carolina)
In Episode 07 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast, Jermel interviews Chuckie Robinson.
Big Chuckie played at James Island High School.
He could run the floor and finish.
He was agile and athletic with good hands.
He was responsible for that era of great James Island players.
Hear all about it on Episode 07 of the 3RIPLE 3HREAT podcast airing every Thursday!
