When the game is in the balance for the Blue Aces of East High, Ja'lin Williams is your go-to-guy. Ja'lin's leadership has been a key part of East High's success this season, with the junior average more than 17 points and nearly 7 assists per game. But it's his numbers in the classroom that you don't see in the stat sheet. He has a 3.5 GPA. "Without the grades you can't get anywhere else", Williams said. "Sometimes basketball can't be your first option, you've got to have a plan B."

Williams says his key to success is simple-work hard in the classroom first, and basketball comes second.
