Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Basketball has always been Marquis Lykes's only sport. The Eau Claire High School senior began playing when he was around eight and has been honing his skills ever since.
"You always gotta go hard, go strong," Lykes said.
Although his statistics are not eye popping (10.5 points, 5 assists) it's the other things Lykes does that makes his coach Lamont Britt proud of his point guard.
"He's willing to learn," Britt said. "He's accountable for everything he does, he's a great leader, and a role model for the other players. I don't know what I'd do without him."
Lykes is also a very good student and active in the community, which makes him a great candidate for News 19's Player of the Week.
