Basketball’s Devon Zajac named Athlete of the Week

Written by Lexie Hunter – Newspaper Staff Reporter

This week’s athlete of the week is senior Devon Zajac. Devon has been playing basketball since the third grade. He thinks he was picked for athlete of the week because he is a leader on the floor and always has high energy. Coach Phillips says, “Day in and day out, Devon has been pushing himself to be the best he can be. The Coaching Staff believes Devon will be the unsung hero for the Bucs this season. He will do everything and anything for the team to win that might not show up in the box score. Although undersized at his position, Devon is not afraid to battle for the ball on any possession. His will to succeed is contagious and should help propel the Bucs to some surprise upsets this season. He is a true treasure to coach.” Devon’s advice to younger players is, “keep working, it may be hard now, but it will all pay off in the end. Don’t skip the weight room!”
