GET READY BLEACHER BOYS FANS! This weeks athlete of the week goes to…

Jake Yanofsky!! Jake is a 4th grader from Tenafly NJ with some pretty impressive hoops talent! Jake plays basketball with one of his three teams almost every day of the week and his dedication most definitely pays off!
Jake plays basketball for the GOATS silverback 4th grade team in Ridgewood as well as the Tenafly 4th grade Rec and Travel teams. Jake’s Tenafly travel team is killing it with a very impressive 6-0 record this season. In the off season Jake continues to play ball, leading his team at The Knicks basketball camp to a championship. He won the title of team MVP and received a playmaker trophy!

In Jake’s last game against the Oakland Braves he made a beautiful 3 pointer. He also had an amazing steal, followed by a layup to contribute to the 4th grade team’s victory against an older and bigger 5th/6th grade team!

Jake not only excels in basketball, he also loves to play soccer and lacrosse. Not surprisingly, Jake is a loyal NY Knicks fan. His favorite player is Kyrie Irving.

Way to go Jake! We can’t wait to see you what you do next. The Bleacher Boys agree you definitely deserve to be Athlete of The Week! Congratulations and welcome to the huddle.
