Reed Sheppard was literally born to play basketball in the state of Kentucky.

His parents, Jeff Sheppard and Stacey Reed, were both superstar players during their respective time playing for the Kentucky Wildcats. Their son appears to be following in their footsteps.

Back on Jan. 20, Reed posted a quadruple-double for North Laurel County High School in an 82-34 win over Jackson County. The freshman (yes, he’s only a freshman), recorded 24 points, 10 rebounds, 14 assists, and 10 steals in the win.

But apparently, this isn’t some new thing for Sheppard, his head coach even said he could put up those kinds of numbers in every single game.

“It’s crazy to say, but he’s capable of doing that almost every night,” said Sheppard’s coach Nate Valentine, according to Jerry Tipton of Kentucky.com. “When they said he had a quadruple-double, you’re not shocked.”

The younger Sheppard has been a varsity high school player since before he was even at that level. He started for North Laurel as an eighth-grader and has already surpassed 1,000 career points. He’s currently the team’s leading scorer at over 19 points per game. If you haven’t heard about the 6-foot-3 budding star yet, you might want to start keeping your ears open.
