Von Steuben players unwind from tough senior season with some fun


By Karl Bullock

After a disappointing end to their senior season at Von Steuben, members of the boys basketball team participated in the Illinois High School Association’s 3-point shooting contest at Whitney Young Magnet High School on Chicago’s near West Side.

For Tyrus Jenkins, Rafael Cruz and Justan McNair-Sneed, the contest was a chance to have some fun and spend one last time on the court together.

Here’s their take on the experience:
