Kentlake High School’s Jonathan McKenzie, soccer, was selected as the Covington Maple Valley Reporter’s Male Athlete of the Week for March 1.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: Math and accounting

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: I enjoy playing basketball, football and playing video games in my spare time.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: I would say it would have to be my family, friends and my coaches. They all did a part.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

A: Every time I score a goal I treat myself to a DQ Blizzard or something similar.

Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?

A: Not a specific song but an artist — Post Malone and every song he makes, on repeat every day.

From the Sideline:

“I selected Jonathan McKenzie for this honor. Jonathan was selected not because of his stats over the last three years but rather for his leadership on the boys soccer team. This year he has been selected as one of the captains of the soccer team. Jonathan leads with his vision on the field. He is not only vocal, but sees things on the field that other team members and onlookers do not.”

— Barry Smith, soccer coach
