The typical son of a varsity coach is predominantly the story the star of the program.
That's not the case this year for Monticello, who is making their first state finals appearance in school history. Coach Kevin Roy (pictured left) has seen his son, Jarron, (pictured right) a senior, work his way through his basketball program over the years but indicates Jarron doesn't play the typical role of a coach's son.
Roy has seen limited minutes in his time at the varsity level until he stepped into the starting role this year. While Jarron doesn't do all the scoring, Coach Roy says he does all the little things and is reliable.
Jarron says his perspective being the coach's son is different from most but says away from the floor, there's not a lot of discussion about the game or the team.
Jarron is the Student Council president and is involved with the Rotary Club, WISE, and is the French Club President.
Jarron will attend the University of Illinois next year. Kevin says Jarron is very studious and has much bigger dreams than basketball. He adds it's been nice to share the bond with basketball during the incredible run they've been on, but indicates basketball is only a small part of what his son is all about.
