Alumni Spotlight: Nelson joins Kodiak coaching staff
At a recent Kodiak High School girls basketball practice, Jerica Nelson stood in the key and chanted, “defense, defense, defense.” She grabbed the rebound and zoomed up the court, maneuvering by players with uncanny dribbling ablities. It was a flashback to 2013, when Nelson was named the Northern Lights Conference most valuable player and guided the Bears to a 4A state title with a perfect 27-0 record. After spen...

No one knows how long they live, ...
