Paul Jorgensen Is Rising Star at Don Bosco, Helps Ironmen to Victory

This was Don Bosco Prep’s game from the outset.

A very skilled, athletic, and disciplined team, the Ironmen set the tone from the outset, jumping out to a 19-3 lead and staying in control the rest of the way, winning 92-44.

“I knew that, if we controlled the tempo, we could win the game,” said sophomore point guard Paul Jorgensen. “We know we’re in much better shape then other teams, so we keep pushing and pressuring.”

Jorgensen is an integral part of the Don Bosco offense, as very creative passer, smooth ballhandler, and offensively aware player on the court. He had nine points in the blowout win.

On the competitive New Jersey Playaz AAU team, his role is different than in the spotlight at Don Bosco.

“The Playaz have a lot of great guards like Isaiah Briscoe and Jordan Forehand, so my role there is to spread it out and let them do their thing,” he says. “On this team, I feel like I’m more of a true point guard and control the tempo and offense.”

As only a sophomore, Jorgensen has a mature understanding of the game and is already 6’1” tall. In the new mold of a point guard, his mix of size and athleticism could have him playing high-major basketball in the future.

“A lot of colleges want to know if you can run an offense, and I get to show that at Don Bosco.”
