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.
