Last Chance U is back on Netflix, though this time the documentary series will focus on the world of basketball and the East Los Angeles College Huskies.

All eight episodes of the first season dropped on Netflix on March 10th, and each episode is about an hour long.

Who is Deshaun Higher?

“There’s one thing that if you put it in there it ties it all up, and that’s Deshaun.”

Deshaun Highler plays shooting guard, is from Riverside California, and is also the captain.

In the first episode, we find out that Deshaun lost both of his parents and is living on his own. His coach explained: “He had to grow up quick, but as a player and a person, he’s everything you would want your kids to be.”

Speaking about his role as captain, Deshaun said:

“I’m the captain, I hold players accountable. When you’re only held accountable by the coaches it’s easier to be like ‘oh that old guy,’ but when its your peer who wants to win just as badly, it’s a little different.”
