Jerome Coney | Student Assistant Coach/Video Coordinator
Jerome Fredrick Coney III, a student assistant coach and video coordinator for the Trojans, has been a fixture with the program since arriving as a freshman after graduating from T.L. Hanna High School in Anderson in 2009. He lettered in football for the storied Yellow Jacket program after playing basketball in his native New Jersey for the North Plainfield Canucks. Coney was an honor student in both English and History in high school and majored in Business at AU, graduating Cum Laude in 2014. His dedication and love for the game of basketball was and is still evident by the amount of time he spends on the hardwood developing his skills. Born in North Plainfield, New Jersey, Coney considers Anderson, S.C., home and is the son of Sherry and Jerome Coney, Jr. He also has a sister, Lavenia.
“I feel very blessed to be able to have JC in our program for another two years as he works on his Masters’ degree,” head coach Jason Taylor said. “He has done impactful things for our program over the last four years that there is no way I can list them all. He’s the best video guy in the business and has one of the most selfless work ethics I’ve ever seen. Our program has been, and fortunately will continue to be the beneficiary of Jerome’s many daily selfless contributions.”
