Player Of The Week: Damonte James

It's a tall task for a high school student to excel in both the classroom and on the court but Damonte James has been able to find that balance.

The Riverside senior basketball player does his job on the court but it's the intangibles that sets him apart.

James has a 3.8 grade point average. He's a member of the National Honor Society, Key Club and BETA Club.

Chris Obarski has the rest of his story.
