John Paul II Falcons Have Two Athletic Signees- Bonifay And Jefferies Sign Scholarships

HUNTSVILLE- Two members from the 2020 class of John Paul II High recently signed athletic scholarships to continue their athletic skills in college.

Nick Bonifay signed an athletic scholarship to play basketball at Oklahoma City University and Jordan Jefferies signed a similar scholarship to play both basketball and run track at Millsaps College.

“I would like to thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to play the game of basketball and also with my gifts and talents,” said Bonifay, who plans on majoring in Business Administration.

The Falcons had Bonifay at guard where he helped the squads to Region and Area champs and making it to the sub-regionals of the AHSAA State Playoffs. He was a four-year player for JP II. In Oklahoma, the Stars are a six-time national championship team playing in NAIA Div. I. He’s noted as a well-focused, committed and forceful athlete.

Jefferies will use her ball skills and natural speed ability to carve out what is expected to be a high-success college athlete in two sports after having a high school career that was worthy of a college scholarship. In track, she was a sprinter and member of the third place 4×100 relay squad at the AHSAA State Track Meet. On the basketball court, Jefferies was a speed dribbler and ball handler.

“She came into our program with the mental strength and ability to build the confidence of our relay team and it showed in the results,” said track coach Steve Zibas of Jefferies who will study pre-law and business at the school located in Jackson, Miss. and partakes in NCAA Div. III.
