Dallas Mavericks' small forward, Justin Jackson, was featured as the keynote speaker at HSAA's annual
all-sports banquet. Justin was the "face" of homeschool basketball for several years---both in Texas
and nationally---as he represented himself, his family, and the homeschool community---on and off the court---
with godly character and grace.

Justin was homeschooled for most of his life, where he played for the Houston HCYA Warriors
from 10U through his senior year in high school. As one of the top high school recruits in the nation,
Justin played in the McDonald's All-American Game (co-MVP) and played collegiately with the
North Carolina Tar Heels, where he was named Consensus All-American and ACC Player of the Year.
His college career ended after he led his team to the National Championship in 2017.

Justin was drafted in the first round by the Portland Trailblazers, but through draft day maneuvering,
he ended up with the Sacramento Kings. He played for almost 2 seasons with the Kings before
being traded to the Dallas Mavericks for Harrison Barnes during the 2018-2019 season. Justin finished
the season strong with the Dallas Mavericks, where he averaged 8.2 points in 29 games. On April 1,
Justin poured in 24 points for the Mavericks against the Philadelphia Sixers.


Dallas HSAA is a homeschool sports organization that serves the Dallas Metroplex areas.
