This week’s athlete of the week is junior guard Jack Platner, who scored a team-high 32 points in the Sharks’ victory over Santa Paula on Jan. 24.
Platner started playing basketball competitively in 5th grade because his friend Kyle Sandler (the Sharks’ starting point guard) did.
Platner said he loves everything about basketball, including the environment and competition associated with it. He said he would love to play in college if given the chance.
His favorite movie is “Glory Road.”
