It's one thing to be a two-sport star, and excel from one sport's season to the next. It's even more impressive to do it while also shining in the classroom.
One young man who manages to juggle athletics and academics is Brandon Sartin, this week's athlete of the week.
Mount de Sales boys basketball head coach Scott Wynn's said "there's a couple of them (team members) that you look them in the eye when you have those conversations, Brandon's definitely not one of those... I know he's gonna take care of his business."
Brandon Sartin has made a habit of getting the job done, whether it be as a 3.4 student, a play-making wideout, or a senior leader for the Cavalier basketball team. Even during one of the most challenging weeks of the school year, finals week.
"It's difficult but I'm gonna have to do it next year in college whether I'm playing sports or not, I'm gonna have to prepare for finals when something else is going on so it prepares us for the future," Sartin says.
He goes on to say "you have to know defenses and offenses and where people are gonna be on the court so it correlates..."
Coach Wynn added, "guys like Brandon who are intelligent young men can pick up the play understand his job and pick up the other four guys roles as well."
That'll be key for a team that is in need of leadership after graduating four starters a year ago. "I can see him in the locker room joking around picking up his teammates that's a big part of what we need right now," coach Wynn says.
It's an x-factor that the Cavs will need in their pursuit of the program's first region title since 2006.
Sartin points out "the goal every year is to win a championship, but banners up so this year just gonna have to work hard stay focused play as a team and well be alright."
Brandon hasn't decided on a plan after graduation. He hopes to also play football wherever he continues his education.
