Holy Cross senior Jacob Meyer is a prolific scorer in basketball (he has scored 40+ points more than thirty times in his career), and he has now re-written the record books in Northern Kentucky. When he recently scored his 3,129th point at Holy Cross, he became the all-time points scorer in Ninth Region history. A likely Kentucky Mr. Basketball candidate, he broke the Ninth Region career scoring record of 3,128 points set by Beechwood’s Scotty Draud in 2021.

Jacob scored 1,109 points overall last season, setting a Ninth Region single-season record. He helped the Indians to a 21-10 record, losing to Dixie Heights in the Ninth Region semifinals. In a first-round win over Conner in the 9th Region tournament, he scored 41 points to tie a tournament record.

His junior year, Jacob averaged 38.2 points a game to go along with seven rebounds and five assists per game. He hit 78 3-pointers on the season. His 38.2 points-per-game average led both the Commonwealth of Kentucky and also the nation. Top games included scoring 58 points vs. Robertson County, 57 points vs. DeSales, 50 points vs. Bracken County and 45 points vs. Eastern.

He is scoring well again this season, with 58 points vs.Walton-Verona, 37 points vs. Scott County and 41 points vs. Newport Catholic. He is leading the state in scoring, averaging 36 points per game. Some big moments this season came when he hit a game-ending shot vs. Newport to give the Indians its second straight 9th Region championship in the All-A Regional Classic. He was named MVP of the regional All-A tournament. Then, in the state All-A Classic, he set a tournament record with 49 points vs. Evangel Christian in the championship game, leading Holy Cross to a runner-up finish. He was tournament MVP here, too.

Jacob holds numerous records and earned several honors last season, including being named NKAC Div. II Player of the Year and second-team all-state. He was also selected to play in the prestigious Kentucky-Indiana junior all-star series.

Active in community service, Jacob also plays basketball for the Indy Heat club team. He will play basketball at the next level, but has not yet selected a college. He made a commitment with Western Kentucky University before his junior year, but he reopened the recruiting process last summer.

His favorite athlete is Ja Morant, favorite entertainer is Michael B. Jordan, favorite book is Winning through Intimidation, favorite movie is Black Adam and most-like-to-meet is Cam Newton.

COACH'S QUOTE – "Jacob is an elite scorer and explosive athlete. He has set many records that will never be broken and will be remembered by NKY high school basketball fans for a lifetime."
— Casey Sorrell, Varsity Basketball Coach
