Jerome Kersey Overcoming the Odds

by Kerry Eggers

6" x 9" Softcover 352 pages


Jerome Kersey was born in Clarksville, Virginia, which is a small rural community in southside Virginia, and he attended public schools in Mecklenburg County. The thought of playing in the NBA was indeed a dream, requiring a belief beyond the reality of his youth. He became a scholarship athlete at Longwood College (now Longwood University), which was just becoming accustomed to “men on campus” for a school that was always known as a state teacher’s college. The combination of athletic maturity, great mentors and coaches and a few good breaks provided Jerome Kersey the means of “Overcoming the Odds” to have a legendary career in the NBA. This book shares his story.

Proceeds from the biography go to the JK Foundation in Portland and the JK ‘84 Men’s Basketball Scholarship at Longwood University.
