Competitor is the first word out of coach Mark White’s mouth when he starts to describe East Mississippi Community College sophomore Jacolby Mobley.
“He is such a competitor,” White said. “He is one of the most competitive guys I have seen. He loves playing basketball. He is the same way in practice and individual workouts. He goes hard. He just competes. Nowadays there are so many guys that aren’t competitors. Competing and being a competitor is a skill and Jacolby has that skill. He competes all the time.”
