Jared Armstrong to stay at Christopher Dock

Jared Armstrong has decided to stay at Christopher Dock after announcing in April that he intended to transfer.

The 5-foot-10 junior averaged 16.1 points per game last season as Dock finished second in District 1 Class AA. He holds an offer from San Jose State and said he has interest from Boston University, St. John's, Providence and Mount St. Mary's. He is 358 points shy of reaching the 1,000 career-point mark.

He said he is staying at Dock because it is the best decision "both educationally and athletically."

"Now it is about loyalty," Armstrong said. "My teammates and the program is more important than the individual accolades I would have received someplace else."

Chris Dolan, who was a first-year coach last season, said in February that Armstrong is a great point guard and a leader for the team.

"We have a great new young coach, who is willing to work which I love about him,” said Armstrong. "He stays extra hours everyday after practice to work me out even more to make sure I’m on top of my game.”
