On Thursday, Crestwood was honoured to be a part of Jahcobi Neath’s University signing. Jahcobi joined us at Crestwood in 2016 and has spent the last 3 years captaining our Senior Boys’ Prep team, as well as working hard on his studies. Jahcobi is an All-Canadian and was a silver medalist last summer on Team Canada. Jahcobi has carried our Crestwood team to many Championships and has scored over 2000 points since starting at Crestwood. Jahcobi’s hard work has certainly paid off and he has received 13 offers for Division I NCAA scholarships. Selecting between Tulane University, Wakeforest University and Central Florida University was a difficult choice because all three schools offered both excellent academic programs and basketball programs. With his family in attendance Jahcobi revealed his choice by placing a Wakeforest hat on his head.
Reza Bagher Nejad
Reza joined us at Crestwood last year in his Grade 11 year and we are pleased to announce that earlier in October he signed with McGill University to play football for the Redmen. Reza is ranked in the top 100 Canadian football players and has been selected to play on Team Ontario for the last 2 years. He received offers from every Canadian University but 2 and also received several DI NCAA scholarship offers. Reza has proudly selected McGill as he has a family history of McGill graduates as well as the fact that McGill plays in the Quebec league which is considered the toughest competition in Canadian University football. Congratulations Reza!
