Zane Janiszewski—the name may be familiar if you’ve attended a football game on a Friday night.

Zane is a valuable freshman player on the Western Wayne varsity football team. He started playing football around the age of 10 and has been playing since. “A lot has changed since I’ve started playing [varsity]”, he said. “The speed of the game is a lot faster and I need to pay attention to what is going on around me to help us in the situation.”  During games, Zane showed his skill by scoring touchdowns. He got help from his teammates and was very happy to spend the season with them. “They always picked me up when I was down or made a mistake. They always helped me out if I didn’t know something” Zane said. They have made him feel at home for his first year, and he’s looking forward to next year’s play.

Zane proves to be a promising player and is very passionate about football, which is why he was chosen as the first rising star this year. Tune in this winter to see Zane play on the Western Wayne boys’ basketball team!
