Central Region Super Youth


Bowling in this year’s USBC Masters Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada,  Jalen Mosley was the talk of the tournament.

Out of a field of almost 400 Bowlers from all over the world, Jalen had an unbelievable week.

Jalen became the youngest bowler in the history of the Masters to reach match play.  He has been bowling since he was two years old.   His highest game is 300 with a high series of 800.
