Donovan Janicek, son of David and Laura Janicek, is this week’s Athlete of the Week. He is a senior at Brentwood High School and a member of the Varsity Tennis Team.
This season, he said one of the biggest highlights was leading the team to a 7-1 record and eventually the playoffs.
Janicek said he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps by playing tennis. When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “Pushing myself and my teammates to be the best possible versions of ourselves.”
His top role model in life is his grandfather. He said he looks up to him as an example of hard work, selflessness and empathy.
Janicek describes himself as driven, passionate and dedicated. When he’s not competing for BHS, he enjoys biking, traveling and exercising.
After graduating from BHS, he plans to go to college to study economics and finance. Eventually, he would like to work in asset management.
