She may not score the most points, but our Loaf N' Jug/Aquafina Athlete Of The Week could be the most important player on the floor.
Kendra Jesik plays point guard for Pueblo South high school, and she's helped the Colts to a number three ranking in the state not by scoring, but by distributing: The part of the game she loves.
"I've been playing since I was probably four years old," says Jesik. "I think I just really like the whole atmosphere of the game, and the fast pace, and just everything about it. I've been playing it forever and I just really love basketball."
She's a four year starter for the Colts, and helped them to the State Championship last year. She is already committed to Metro State to play basketball next year. If you have an athlete of the week nomination email firstname.lastname@example.org
