The Lakeview Spartans boys basketball squad has started to play team ball over the last few weeks, but have had one solid leader on and off the floor.

This week's Athlete of the Week is a three-year starter for the Spartans as a junior. C.J. Foster has had a fantastic thus far, heading into Thursday's game at Battle Creek Central with a team-high average of 11.1 points per game, while dishing out just over three assists and hitting 74 percent of his free throws.

Last week he led the Spartans in scoring in all three games, with 16 points apiece against St. Joseph and Gull Lake, and 21 points against Three Rivers.

Foster also carries a 3.9 GPA and volunteers with Lakeview's youth program.
