This week's 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete of the Week is Jakari Desphy from Walsh Jesuit High School.

Jakari is a junior goalie on the Warriors hockey team, and is having a terrific season so far as they get ready for state tournament play.

Since age two, Jakari has loved the sport of hockey. Around that time, he first donned a pair of skates, and has been a long-time fan of the New Jersey Devils. Being a goalie, his favorite player was Martin Brodeur.

Jakari really enjoys attending Walsh Jesuit due to the tight knit student body and faculty. He hopes to attend college at either Vanderbilt or Boston University, a hockey powerhouse.

Best of luck, Jakari!
