About Me

Joseph Harless is very hopeful to get a second chance to play college basketball. Harless received a basketball scholarship out of high school, but did not take college seriously and lost his scholarship. Joseph Harless made good grades in high school and now has the drive to do it again. Harless now sees how important an education is, and wants to pursue a degree involving his love of basketball and fitness, perhaps as a personal trainer or coach. He would like a chance to play ball anywhere that will let him play. There were many mentions of Harless in the Johnson City Press newspaper when he played for his high school from 2016-2018.
