JxmyHighroller Background and Origins
Grayson Anderson, also called by his YouTube handle JxmyHighroller by many of his fans, is a sports fan for most of his life. In High School, he and his team went on an interstate basketball tournament and won the National Championship.
His passion for the sport continued to grow as he enters college. Taking a scholarship offer because of his athletics, Anderson went to an NCAA Division 1 school. He would then continue improving his athletics throughout his college years.
The JxmyHighroller YouTube Channel
JxmyHighroller is the content creator behind this basketball-focused YouTube channel of the same name. He launched his channel in November 2007 and started with the andergra000 handle before switching to JxmyHighroller.
Anderson is a fan of athletics. But he didn’t start with posting mini basketball documentaries like he does today. Instead, he began with posting videos about track and field.
Even though Anderson created his channel in 2007, he wouldn’t post anything until August 2010. The 3-year period implies that his account was purely for watching videos instead of posting anything on his channel.
His first video, called Thomas Tyner vs. Tatum Taylor, garnered over 75,000 views. But his next video, called Success: How Bad Do You Want It? Track & Field, did slightly worse at about 54,000 views. Also, these two videos were one year apart.
The time gap between each video implies that Anderson didn’t originally plan on making YouTube videos for a living. His third video solidifies that thought as it took Anderson two years from his second video to publish his next piece.
Anderson’s channel began gaining traction upon publishing his fourth video entitled Usain Bolt vs. The NFL. Unlike his first three videos, his fourth clip got over 2 million views. However, it wasn’t enough to make JxmyHighroller focus on becoming a full-time YouTuber.
It wasn’t until January 2017, about 10 years since the creation of his channel, that Anderson decided to publish more content. Since then, he averages 80,000 views per video. Some videos did better than others, racking up about 500 to 800 thousand views. Today, many of JxmyHighroller’s videos can reach over one million views.
