Our latest Subway Scholar Athlete of the Week is the son of a dentist, so you know he has a good looking smile! And right now he has more that one reason to show it off. Pleasant Valley's Kevin Kremer, a standout sophomore on the Pleasant Valley boys basketball team, is the latest Subway Scholar Athlete of the Week.
Kevin Kremer may be young - he's 16-years-old and still doesn't have his driver's license - but he sure does play above his age at the varsity level on the basketball court.
Last Friday against rival Chico, with the Vikings trailing by two in the final seconds of the fourth quarter, Kremer had the presence of mind to make a crosscourt pass to Trevor Owens streaking toward the basket for a game-tying layup as the buzzer sounded.
When most players would have pulled up and hoisted a shot, Kremer thought otherwise and made an unselfish play which helped PV go onto win 66-61 in overtime.
"I noticed the clock and I wouldn't have been able to make it to where I consider would be a good shot and I got him a good pass and an opportunity to tie the game," Kremer said. "That lifted our spirits and made us feel like we were going get that win in overtime."
It was just one play in what's been a great season so far for Kremer. He's averaging 10 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists per game.
Off the court and in the classroom, he also puts up big numbers. Kremer carries a 3.72 GPA and says his parents help him stay on top of his work.
"If I miss an assignment, I can't play in a game, so I take a lot of pride in my schoolwork," said Kremer.
