This week we head to the hardwood at West Jessamine to find our student athlete of the week. It’s Colts senior Deajuan Stepp. Deajuan was nominated for his play on the basketball court but also because of his giving nature off of it.
Not only does he work with younger kids grow to love the game of basketball.. He also helps his mom make goodie bags for the homeless. A kind and selfless young man.. Stepp hasn’t committed to a college yet but hopes to land with a division 1 program.
In the meantime.. Stepp has one more year to ball out at West Jess:
“I just love playing the game. It’s just fun to play, it keeps my mind off stuff. If I’m feeling bad, basketball takes my mind off everything. It just puts me in a good mood.”
