“Jonah has been a big time playmaker for us all year and has really come on strong down the stretch,” said Concordia-Irvine coach Ryan Brent told MCLA.us.“His ability to create offense out of nothing really helps kickstart our offense when we get bogged down. Jonah is not only a great individual player, but his unselfish team play allows us to be multidimensional in our attack.”
