Jerard Graham Signs With Clarendon

Burkburnett basketball had a fantastic season, coming up inches short of a state championship.

Friday the first Bulldog senior signed his letter of intent, as Jerard Graham announced he'll play for Clarendon Junior College for the next two years.

Graham played just two years in Burkburnett after transferring in with his father, who is in the Air Force, and says his time in Burkburnett really helped him.

Graham averaged 14.5 points, 3.7 assists and 3.2 steals per game his senior season, helping to lead the Dunkin' Dogs to a 33-4 record and the 3A state title game.

He was also unanimously named 1st-team All District 6-3A, named TABC All Region I-3A, MVP of the Region I-3A tournament, named to the Class 3A All-State Tournament team, and named TABC All-State in Class 3A.

"Jerard has been a terrific player for us the last two years," Head Coach Danny Nix said in a written statement.

"Nobody has worked any harder than he has and we couldn't be more proud of him. We are very excited about him going to Clarendon College and playing for Coach Starnes It will be a great opportunity for him and we really believe he will play at a NCAA school after that."
