Jalen Rose Named Michiganian of the Year
June 6, 2013
Perry Watson remembers a 12-year-old Jalen Rose walking up to him and declaring, "I'm going to play for you."
Watson was then the coach of powerhouse Detroit Southwestern High School and he knew nothing of the skinny pre-teen who attended St. Cecilia School, but the early statement gave great insight into Rose's psyche.
"He was always a perceptive young man and really knew what he wanted," Watson says. "Jalen knew about me and SW and I didn't know Jalen Rose. He would watch all the teams play and say he'd be better than all of them."
