That could very well sum up the play of Southwestern senior Jonathan Edwards.
You see, Edwards has made a name for himself over the past three years as one of the most prolific and deadliest shooters inside the 12th Region, from behind the three-point line.
When it comes to shooting way out deep and torching the nets from long range, nobody does it better than Jonathan Edwards.
Edwards finished second behind teammate Dustin Fothergill last season, with 87 made three-point baskets, in helping lead Southwestern to a district title, and a runner-up finish in the regional tournament.
The 6-foot-three inch senior averaged 17.8 points per contest last season as a junior, hitting on 35 percent of his three-point attempts.
“Since Jonathan Edwards was in third grade, he’s just been able to shoot it,” continued the Warrior head coach. “He was a kid that when you put a ball into his hands, he just knew what to do with it. Through the maturation process, he’s become, not just a shooter, but he’s become an offensive basketball player. He’s learned to score in other ways, besides just shooting the three ball.”
Edwards also displayed the knack for being able to take his man off the dribble, and drive and score in and around the basket.
With Edwards ability to score, and score in bunches from both the outside and inside, future Southwestern opponents this season are going to have their hands full trying to guard the “Mad Bomber.”
