Concord High School – Coach Jason Stowe

Concord endured a challenging season in 2016-17. They finished with a 10-16 record in the NCHSAA 3A.  Coach Jason Stowe had a lineup of youth and mostly inexperienced varsity players. Now, Coach Stowe has reason to be more optimistic. His players are a year older and will bring a much-needed experience to 2017-18. We believe he is still a year away of being really special, but Coach Stowe does have an intriguing roster that could make some serious noise in the South Piedmont 3A conference.



6’4 ’19 Jalen O’Neal

We’re really high on the upside and potential of Jalen O’Neal and we feel like this could be his year to solidify his recruitment on a solid platform. Last season, Jalen averaged 12 PPG and 7 RPG and was one of the team’s most consistent players. Jalen has excellent court vision and a nice feel for the game. Coach Stowe stated, “Jalen can score from anywhere on the court. He is active on both ends of the court. He plays excellent team basketball and should have a breakout year.” In addition, Jalen has the ability to guard and play multiple positions.

6’6 ’20 Jackson Threadgill

There has been a steady flow of college coaches at Concord HS and Jackson Threadgill has been the reason why. We’re talking about a fundamentally sound shooting guard who has good size, length and a willing work ethic. He has an advanced skill set and matching basketball IQ. During our open gym tour, we were impressed with his team first approach and great attitude. Jackson should be Concord’s go to player and will provide a constant and efficient scorer. Coach Stowe stated, “Jackson has a good midrange game and 3-point shot, but more importantly understands how to play the game the right way.

6’4 ’19 Jordan Stowe

We personally believe Jordan Stowe will be the glue for this year’s team. At the NC Phenom 150 camp, Jordan showcased an improved skill set and more confidence in his play. He’s such an unselfish player and we were impressed with his court vision and ability to run the team in the half court. Without question, Jordan is a pass-first point guard with a high basketball IQ. He has a smooth and fluid game matched by his poise and maturity. Coach Stowe stated, “Jordan gets his teammates involved. He uses his length on defense and is a really good outside shooter.”


6’4’19 DeVonte Sampson

DeVonte is an unbelievable bouncy, explosive and athletic wing, not to mention his full-throttle approach to the game. He has tremendous length (6’10 wingspan) plays with a boundless amount of energy. Coach Stowe stated, “DeVonte is so active especially on defense. He is a great shot blocker for his size. He can guard all five positions on the floor.”

6’0 ’19 Jackson Lippard

Every team needs the blue-collar worker and that guy is Jackson Lippard. Jackson is tough as nails and brings a workmanlike approach to every game. Coach Stowe stated, “Jackson is our hard nose player. He does all the dirty work and guards the opposing team’s best player. Last year, he led the team in taking charges as a sophomore.”
