New Coach Announcement


The staff and I are excited to welcome Jerist (“JT”) Roberts to the John F. Kennedy coaching staff roster. Mr. Roberts has accepted the position of head boys varsity basketball coach. A Cougar already, JT graduated from Kennedy in 2000 and went on to play at Sacramento City College and then Alcorn State University. His coaching career includes Sacramento City College, a stint here at JFK as well as Cosumnes Oaks High where he served as the head coach. In addition, Mr. Roberts is a trainer at the 916 Skills Academy; a program open to basketball players of all levels, it provides year-round access to coaching and skill development. As you will agree, Mr. Roberts brings a wealth of experience to our players and staff.

Excited to carry on the proud tradition of Cougar basketball, Mr. Roberts starts immediately. Please join me in welcoming him (back) to Kennedy!
