2013: TOP 22 - Shawnee's Jalen Nelson working both side to make another run at state
SPRINGFIELD -- Jalen Nelson is one of the few remaining Braves from their state run in 2011.
Shawnee made it to round two last season and went 8-4 overall.
The Braves have been on the upswing and one of the best teams in the area..
Nelson is one of the few Top 22 stars who plays both offense and defense and will be key to getting a young Shawnee team back to the playoffs.
Shawnee opens the season next Friday at Springfield Catholic Central.
