GET READY BLEACHER BOY FANS! This week’s Athlete of the Week goes to…

Ethan Zuckerman!! Ethan is a sixth grader at Welsh Valley Middle School in Narberth, PA who lives for basketball. Ethan was always an all sport athlete. He grew to realize he loved basketball the most and was a very good player so Ethan made basketball his focus. He now plays the sport year-round and is currently on the AAU team the Jonjay Spartans. Other teams he has played for are PVJSA defenders and East Coast Power.

Before becoming a Spartan, Ethan did not make a team he tried out for. He did not let this stop him though. Instead, he worked very hard with his trainer, Bilal Benn, and ended up making a different elite team. Ethan is very proud of this accomplishment. On the Jonjay Spartans Ethan plays shooting guard and small forward. His great ball handling and shooting skills helped contribute to Jonjay’s 1st place victory in the 12U Young Elite Sports Tournament. In his best game ever for his PVJSA team he had 37 points. Very impressive game play!

Ethan’s favorite professional basketball team is his home team, the Philadelphia 76ers. He admires James Harden as a player because he is a body armor athlete and he loves his court vision, ball handling, and shooting. Ethan also loves hanging out with his two younger brothers, football, swimming, and spending his summers at Camp Equinunk.  Congratulations Ethan and welcome to the huddle!!
