American former basketball player Jay Williams attended this year’s American Black Film Festival to premiere the first and second episode of Best Shot. This all-new eight episode docu-series follows Williams returning to his home state of New Jersey to join the coaching staff for Newark’s Central High School Basketball team. As you watch this series you will see Jay alongside longtime head coach, Shawn “OG” McCray, mentor these young boys as well as see what it’s like growing up in Newark, New Jersey.
