We know that numbers never lie.

And it's no lie that those numbers are easy to attain. Just ask Jarod Salton.

" It's simple. You just practice. I'm here every chance I get working on shots and different spares."
And it's no different in the classroom.
" People think it's hard to get good grades. But if you study and do your homework, good grades will follow."
When he's not working on his grades, or his other average, J-Rod is there to root on his teammates.

" He's a big cheerleader. When the girls went to the state tournament, he was there cheering them on."
Jarod has thoughts of a journalism career someday, and his first work in the field tells the rest of his story.
" How about another one of my good friends Anthony Nanni..."
" You taught me everything I know about bowling..."
" And what about..."
" All I can say is you're the loudest guy in the bowling alley."
" Is that a good thing or a bad thing?"
" It's a great thing."
