Athlete of the Week: Karim El'Amin - January 22nd

Posted: Updated: Jan 22, 2014 08:30 PM CST

Booker T. Washington senior Karim El'Amin is considered one of the best high school basketball players in the area. At 6'3 the guard averages double figures each time he steps foot onto the court despite being the target of every opponent.

"Karim is constantly getting double teamed, sometimes triple coverage and he's yet to really lose it," said Donnita Rogers, BTW head coach. "He takes a whole lot and he handles it really well."

El'Amin grew up with a basketball in his hand, spending most of his time shooting hoops at Lakeside Rec. That translated into buckets for BTW. El'Amin won't credit his strong work ethic but rather his teammates for his success.

"It's great to play with these guys. They put the ball in my hands and they believe in me to score."
