“Isaac deserves Athlete of Week for so many reasons. His records could be dedicated to an entire book. He is a multi-sports star. He excels at football, basketball and baseball. Learning how to play multiple sports has allowed him to apply his competitiveness, skill and desire. Isaac is the most competitive player on my team. He yearns to win more than other player.
