Athlete Jaylen Sanders upholds sports spirit

Lead, dribble, block. Run, pass, and kick. Jaylen Sanders, eighth grade communications major, does it all in three sports.

“I think my biggest achievement, as far as school sports go, is being the captain of the basketball and track teams,” Sanders said.

Although having to accommodate for academics, he spent countless amounts of time training.

“On average I usually practice around 15 hours a week (two and a half hours a day). Outside of school I’m involved in basketball and football,” Sanders said.

Currently goalie for the boys’ soccer team, he hoped to continue playing sports both at school and for his travel team.

Brandon Wisnicki, eighth grade communications major said, “When it comes to sports, everyone knows Jaylen.”
