Ezra Elisoff is the Juneau Empire’s player of the week.
Elisoff, a sophomore at Thunder Mountain High School, won the Alaskan high kick at the Yukon Inter-Schools Arctic Sports Championship last week in Whitehorse. Elisoff was one of seven members of the Juneau Native Youth Olympics team that won eight medals in the event. Besides Alaskan high kick, the competition also included kneel jump, triple jump, one-foot high kick, arm pull and leg wrestling.
The Juneau NYO team heads to the Peninsula Winter Games in Soldotna, Jan. 17-19.
