Ravenscroft basketball standout Jackson Rein ’24 scored the 1,000th point of his varsity career during the team’s Feb. 17 game against Covenant Day.

In his third year under veteran varsity head coach Kevin Billerman, Jackson served as a team captain and helped lead the Ravens to a 17-12 overall record and the 2024 TISAC Conference Championship. He was named All-Tournament at the John Wall Holiday Invitational in December. Wrapping up the season, he was named All-Conference for the second time and All-State.

He has also played AAU club basketball with DB Elite.

His accomplishments this season were recognized at the Winter 2023-24 Varsity Sports Awards, held Feb. 27. Billerman also gave him the team’s Coaches Award, which recognizes the varsity student-athlete who best exhibits the teamwork, commitment and leadership that the Athletics Department and coaches work to cultivate in their Ravens.

“Jackson Rein is the player that, in my 24 years, has developed and grown into one of the best players and leaders we’ve ever had,” Billerman said.

Jackson said he is grateful for the guidance and encouragement of his coaches.

“To be able to score 1,000 points in my high school career was incredible, but what was even more incredible was to be able to do it in such an outstanding program. Without the constant support and belief of Coach Billerman, Coach Williams and Coach Davis throughout my career, I couldn’t have accomplished what I’ve been able to,” he said. “While it’s humbling to be able to receive such recognition, the support from those in this program and the brotherhood formed with my teammates is what I’ll really remember from being a part of Ravenscroft basketball.”

Another accolade came on March 1, when Jackson was a starter for the East team at the North Carolina Private School All-Star Game.

Even as he has hit this major scoring milestone, Jackson’s not done yet: he has committed to play basketball at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, next year. 

Congratulations, Jackson!
