St. John High School has contributed to the McPherson College basketball legacy in the past and is going to contribute to the future.

Jorge Calleros, a 6-1 guard who played on two Tiger teams that won state championships, has signed a letter of intent with the Bulldogs.

Calleros, who played for former Bulldog Clint Kinnamon, averaged 8.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 steals as the Tigers took second in the state this past season after winning state titles in 2015 and 2014.

He is a three-time Central Plains League selection and also earned All-State mention.

“Jorge comes from an outstanding high school program at St. John," Mac coach Tim Swartzendruber said. "Jorge is a great athlete and can really shoot the ball. He understands how to play and is a great teammate. He is a high-character person and excellent in the classroom. We couldn't be more pleased to add him to our program and college."

Current Bulldog Zuriel Reyes is from St. John as were former standouts Clint Kinnamon, Kurt Kinnamon and Matt Richardson, all now highly successful coaches.
