J'von Evans

(WKTV) - Our Athlete of the Week is J'Von Evans from Proctor boys basketball.

The senior scored 23 points in the Raiders' section semifinal win over Henninger, getting Proctor to their fifth straight AA section final, third at the Carrier Dome.

But his leadership goes beyond just scoring, as Evans runs the floor for the Raiders and has also been a force on the football field as well.

"I just try and put my team in the best chance to win a game," says Evans.  "If it's for me to make the big play I make the big play.  If it's someone else, I get them in position so they can make the big play.  It's all about the team and getting the win."

"This particular season J'Von is our go to guy," says Proctor head coach Mark Joseph.  "We had a few games this year where it looked like we weren't going to get it done, one ND, one WB here, one McQuaid Jesuit out of Rochester where J'Von put the team on his back and got us the victory in those games."
