The Tire Recycle Urban High School Athlete of the Week is Alain Baraka of the Elmwood Giants cross country & football teams.

This 5’10” runner and receiver is a key component on both the Elmwood football and cross-country teams.  In the first cross-country meet of the season at Kildonan Park, he finished 1st.  He was also a critical element in the Giant's first football win of the season.  Coach Nathan Falk states, "Alain is an extremely dedicated and committed athlete, who is exceptionally talented.  He is modest, and puts other teammates before himself."

This grade 12 student maintains a 71% academic average, while also competing in basketball, soccer, and track & field.
