He was the only one not to try a 3A in his SP. The not trying of the jump is the most negative for his career in singles if he wants to have one and skate in seniors. I don't know what his career plans are and if he wants to continue after Jr.

    He's freakin' 16! He just hit his first growth spurt in May which made a lot of his elements precarious over the summer (he had a total disaster at Skate Milwaukee) and has recently changed boot brands and styles because he was in the Jackson Hinged boots but they no longer make them. He's talked in some interviews about having to relearn to jump based on the boot change and getting 5 inches taller in a short period of time didn't help that at all! He works HARD. Grant Hochstein recently FINALLY got control of his 3A and he's 20.

    Actually he will be 17 in a few days and he still looks a very short guy. Maybe he will actually grow a bit taller later?

    Thanks so much for the videos!!! Great job, Josh! and oh, oh, oh, how I do love to watch Jason skate. Here's hoping he conquers the triple axel so we get to watch him in thrive in seniors when he is ready; but, I'm glad he still has time in juniors and hope he reaches all his goals along the way.

    Good to see that the US has a bright future in men's skating with Jason Brown and Joshua Farris. Some of the older skaters who haven't skated to their potential like Adam Rippon better be worried about these two kids when go Senior.

    Still love that Jason Brown but he's going to have to take a risk and do that 3 axel. Love, love his short.

    That Han guy is even shorter than Jason.

    They all have so much potential. I like watching juniors and then seeing how they will do in seniors.
