Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #10 Jerome Toby Jr.

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 boys. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Jerome Toby Jr., sophomore, Lummi Nation

WHY HE’S #10: A starter for the Blackhawks since he was an eighth-grader, Toby was the leader for a Lummi Nation squad that won league, district, and tri-district championships and would have placed higher than sixth at state had Toby not been hurt. The 5-foot-8 point guard averaged 21 points, nearly 6 assists, and 2.5 steals a game. He already has scored more than 1,000 points in his career, was the Northwest 1B League’s co-MVP, and should be getting all-state recognition even as a sophomore.

COACH JEROME TOBY SR.: “Jerome is a player who you can put the ball in his hands and let him run the team. He has great court vision, is a great team defender and a great teammate, who enjoys seeing his teammates have success.”
