Three questions with Sapulpa High School Girls Basketball Unsung Hero Jaselyn Rossman.
VYPE: What does your team and teammates mean to you?
Rossman: My teammates are seriously like my sisters. Last year’s team felt so much like a family, and I think that was why we were so successful. And this year we are even closer, I would do anything for them, and I know they would do the same. And I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my coaches. I’ve had the privilege to learn from the two best coaches, Coach Calip and Coach Cooper, since my eighth grade year, and without them our team wouldn’t function.
VYPE: When you hear coach call you an unsung hero of the team, what does that mean to you and how do you define that term?
Rossman: To be the unsung hero of the team I think you have to know your role, and with that role you have to be willing to do the things that nobody sees, but those things can make the difference in the game. To be the unsung hero you can’t be in the spotlight, but you have to do whatever it takes to help your team be successful.
VYPE: What grade are you in and what are your plans after you graduate?
Rossman: I am a senior, and after I graduate, I would like to attend either OU or OSU and begin my career most likely in medicine.
