Tigers News · January Student-Athletes of the Month

Alex Jaczko, 12-Basketball, 4.22 GPA

Achievements:  1st Team All-League as a Junior.  Top 5 in the state last season in field goal percentage shooting.

Leadership: Alex is our team leader because he not only says, but he does the right things every single day.  He is the vocal leader who other players listen to and respect.  He is always encouraging, but holds his teammates to high standards.  He is able to do this because he holds himself to those high standards and is a great example of the type of player we want in our program, because of his work ethic and commitment to excellence.

Service to Others:  As an ASB Senior leader, Alex is constantly volunteering and working on projects that benefit other students and help make NHS a better place.  He goes above and beyond in the amount of time, energy, and effort he puts toward doing whatever he can to make sure that others have a great experience.  Whenever help is needed with a youth tournament or camp, Alex is quick to volunteer and is able to take on any responsibility he is given.  He interacts extremely well with youth basketball players and helps them have a great experience.  It is so encouraging to see him give back to the youth and the community!

Character: Alex is hard-working, dedicated, fun-loving, genuine, and kind-hearted.  He has an amazing ability to remain positive and focused on doing whatever it takes to reach the team goal, regardless of the adversity or success the team may experience.
