Sports Picture of the Week

Our sports picture of the week is not of a professional nor even a college athlete. It is of Fenville High School (in Michigan) basketball player, Wes Leonard being hoisted up by teammates, after winning an overtime game, and finishing a perfect season of 20 wins and 0 losses. But minutes after this amazing performance, Leonard collapsed on the court and died of a rare heart condition. The condition, dilated cardiomyopathy, brought on cardiac arrest. The story has made national headlines, as the high school community grieves. A very shocking and sad story, but at the very least Leonard finished out on top.
