Erie Times-News Breakout Boys Basketball Player of the Week: Jeff Thompkins, Kennedy Catholic

Jeff Thompkins

The Kennedy Catholic boys basketball team is a traditional powerhouse in Class A and Jeff Thompkins is a big reason why the Golden Eagles could reclaim the District 10 championship.

Thompkins, a 6-foot 2-inch, senior guard/forward, is averaging 18 points per game this season.

Recently, Thompkins erupted for 27 points in a 99-60 win over VisionQuest and is one of the top players in Mercer County this winter. Kennedy is 7-3 overall and 2-0 in Region 1 this year and is looking for its first D-10 championship in four years after winning 12 in a row.
