ECA sharpshooter is Athlete of the Week

J.D. Kohl is this week's Loaf 'N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.

J.D. is a senior sharpshooter for the Evangelical Christian Academy basketball team. This kid can really light it up. He's averaging 14 points and six rebounds per game. So far this season, J.D. has hit 48 three-pointers and his three-point percentage is a Ray Allen-like 42-percent.

Just recently, J.D. tied a school record with nine threes in one game. He then had a chance to break the record, but chose to pass the ball to his younger brother so he could make his first ever three-pointer.

J.D. told us the secret to his success.

"Usually there's a play or I find a hole," said J.D. "Find a spot and get the feet set and let it fly."

He says he spends six hours each week practicing just three-pointers.

J.D. excels at math and hopes to attend Colorado School of Mines next year where he wants to study engineering.
