Firestone High School senior boys basketball player Jaylin Moore is this week's male Student Athlete of the Week for WAKR.
Moore is off to quick start for the Falcons team, as he has scored in double digits in three of the first four games. Firestone is off to a 3-1 start.
"I really worked on my shot this offseason, plus my speed," said Moore. "So Far, it is working well."
Jaylin is a four-year member of the Falcon team, but this is his first year as a starter. Last year, he averaged close to 15 points per game off the Firestone bench.
"I think we are really good, we share the ball well, we look for our teammates," said Moore.
Moore has been a track athlete with the green and yellow in the past, but right now he just wants to concentrate on basketball, a sport he hoops to play in college.
"I hope to play basketball in college but more importantly I want to get a Business degree," said Moore.
As a youth, Jaylin always wanted to play basketball. His father noticed that love and got him some special training, and now the hard work is paying off for this Firestone High School senior.
