One of the regular Friday highlights now ingrained in the noon ET SportsCenter is a segment called “Feel Good Friday.” It’s self-explanatory.
Today, co-anchors Nicole Briscoe and Randy Scott feature a segment focused on Dallas Cowboys safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
Today on Front Row, NBA Countdown analyst and Jalen & Jacoby co-host Jalen Rose and NBA Countdown host and College GameDay/ABC Saturday Night Football reporter Maria Taylor are featured.
In 2011, Rose established the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA), “an open enrollment, tuition free public charter high school in Northwest Detroit with a mission to empower all scholars to develop the strength of character, skills, and knowledge needed to matriculate, be great in, and graduate from college so that they have opportunities to be successful in the competitive world and take care of themselves and the people that they love.”
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 graduating seniors of the JRLA were not able to celebrate with a traditional commencement ceremony. Rose, who also serves as the President of the Board of Directors, and the JRLA board and staff, were able to pivot with a virtual celebration that included inspiring messages from Rose, Academy Award-Winning actor Jamie Foxx, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kyle Kuzma, and comedian Mike Epps.

The NBA Countdown team recently reflected on the ceremony. Here is Rose’s commencement address.
