Reading High great Stu Jackson was on hand to see his number retired at the Geigle Complex Friday evening.

READING, Pa. -

one of the best players in Reading High history was honored last night.
Reading High great Stu Jackson had his number retired before the Red Knights took the floor at their holiday tournament Thursday night at the Geigle Complex.

Jackson scored more than 1500 points in his time at R-H-S and went on to coach the New York Knicks.

Now the NBA's Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Jackson was honored but had a special message for the Red Knights. That message that said any goal is possible as long as the young men have the inner-motivation and fortitude to achieve them.
