Jessy Ellis is Southwood's speedy point guard. She has proven to her opponents that size does not matter, standing only five feet tall. She averages more than 12 points, seven assists, and four steals per game.
"She's hard to guard because of her quickness. She's almost full speed on her first two steps," said Steve McDowell, Southwood girls head coach.
Just last weekend, Ellis led the Lady Cowboys to a 5A state championship. She scored 20 points and was named MVP.
