OHS Little signs full basketball scholarship for San Jacinto Junior College
Orangefield High School’s powerhouse player, Lady Bobcat Guard Kaylin Little, also known as Kay-K, signed a full basketball scholarship to attend San Jacinto Junior College last week.
Little led the team in points and has recorded an impressive 2,230 points for her four year high school career. She has broken six school records during her career. Little holds the record for most points in a game at 41; most free throws in a season, 179 and most poinst in a season. Chosen as Orange Leader’s MVP Basketball, SetxSports.com MPV Basketball and Beaumont Enterprise Super Gold Team Basketball, Little has proven her abilities time and again.
“Kay-K is not that tall,” said her grandmother, Jean Moreau. “I remember my father always saying, ‘It’s not the size that matters, but what does… is the desire and commitment.’ and Kay-K is committed.”
Moreau’s father was a well known Southeast Texas official, Frenchy Dominque.
Athleticism did not start with Little.
Her father, Keith Little was the Orange County Athlete of the Year in 1980 for football and track. “He played basketball too, but football was his thing,” said his mother. “He wasn’t big either, he was only 5’8” and 130 pounds dripping wet.”
“After trying out for San Jacinto, she played in the All Star Basketball game in Houston and the coaches from St. Jac were there. They called her. She is elated She just wanted to play for St. Jac,” her grandmother said.
If she had not received the scholarship for San Jacinto, then she would have walked on at Lamar.
She just wants to play ball.
