Jerome Hornbuckle, the father of Alexis Hornbuckle, has coached for over 38 years in basketball. His desire has always been to be in a position where his basketball and other sports experience related to athletic development, would hopefully be an added value to a program. Alexis immediately brought him over to Jay M Robinson High School and NC Reign because she knows his value. Alexis says, “My dad taught me the game of basketball, and I turned out more than ok. God has blessed him with an eye for unforeseen talent, as well as a knowledge of the game that competes with the top coaches in the world in my opinion. If he was given an opportunity on a bigger stage to showcase his coaching style and the winning results he produces, then you would easily see he is a great coach and mentor to have.
