Central hoopster is Athlete of the Week

Gyasi Howard of Pueblo Central High School is this week's Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.

Gyasi is actually homeschooled but he's the starting point guard on the Central Wildcats basketball team. The 18-year old senior averages 9.5 points per game and hopes to play hoops in college.

Speaking of college, Gyasi is currently taking college level courses at Pueblo Community College and hopes to study kinesiology when he graduates high school.

He also helps around the community by providing lawn care service to seniors. And he gives back to the kids, as well. Gyasi teaches a couple youngsters how to play the game of basketball.
