Athlete of the Week: Marzaveon Cooper - February 12th

Posted: Updated:

Joaquin (TX) senior, Marzaveon Cooper, suited up to play in his final home game of his high school career but his legacy with the Rams would not end there. He will leave a lasting impression on his fellow teammates through his actions.

"If you say show up at seven o'clock he's going to be there at 6:30. He's willing to work and do anything he has to do. He wants to make himself better and the people around him," said Jared Duck, head coach of the boys basketball team at Joaquin. "He's an extension of the coaching staff on the floor."

Marzaveon, who is affectionately called "Zay" by the rest of the student body, averaged nearly 13 points per game this year.

A three sport athlete at Joaquin, Zay also excells in the classroom and carries a 3.8 GPA and has been selected as Student of the Year six times.
