If you know anything about Jonas, you know this – nothing comes between him and the Denver Nuggets. Ever since the moment Mike Miller took a bracelet off his own 2-time NBA-Championship-winning arm and put it on Jonas’s wrist, he’s been a mega-fan. And Jonas knows that with enough practice, he might one day be playing for his favorite team.

Jonas’s middle name is not practice, but it could be. He practices non-stop, lacing up his shoes right after breakfast and sometimes shooting hoops or kicking a ball outside for hours after the sun has gone down.

Jonas loves sports just as much as his twin brother Adin. Aside from the Nuggets, his number 2 team is the Knicks, and he’s a loyal NY Yankees and NY Jets fan. He also loves NYC FC and watching international soccer. He’d love to go to the World Cup one day. And his favorite college team in the world is The University of Michigan, where his dad went to school. Every year Jonas and his family go to the Big House for a football game! This year he’s going to see Michigan vs. Michigan State – he plans on losing his voice from screaming.

Jonas is going into 4th grade at Tenafly’s Maugham school and he plays travel basketball and travel soccer for Tenafly’s travel teams. He also plays club basketball every season except summer. He loves football but he’s not allowed to play team tackle football (sorry, Jo).

This month, Jonas is training with Adin at the Red Bulls Academy residential soccer camp in The Bronx, and later this summer he’ll be in Pennsylvania at an intensive 2-week residential basketball camp. By the time school starts again, he’ll be bringing his A-game.

Jonas loves being a Bleacher Boy. He started out nervous during interviews but has progressed into a seasoned professional! He can’t wait to go after some big names as a 4th grader and wants to keep filling the blog with exciting content.

Jonas hopes everyone keeps following The Bleacher Boys and he wants you to know that if you need him for anything – he’ll be outside practicing.
