Spotlight Athlete of the Week

February 25, 2016

 

Rakim Lesane is the JCC Spotlight Athlete of the Week for February 25, 2016.  Lesane is a freshman member of the Jayhawks men's basketball team.  In the final home game of the season, he racked up 22 points, 7 assists, and 5 steals against Mercyhurst North East on Saturday.

Lesane said that the opportunity to play collegiate level basketball was what made JCC an attractive option for him.  He has been in love with the game since he was young, so this was a natural choice.  The competitiveness of the sport is enjoyable for him, and winning games is of course a positive as well.

Going forward, Lesane hopes to win a national title with his fellow teammates.  They are entering the playoffs at 22-6 and will be playing their first postseason game on Saturday.  Personally, he hopes to be a professional basketball player and a business owner after college.

To upcoming athletes, Lesane said the key to success is to just keep grinding with perseverance and never stop pushing.  These are great words of advice for all, especially with the team moving into the playoffs this weekend.
