Johnathan Holtmann of Warren Collegiate is “the player you know you cannot play without”, says coach Cathy Pleskach. Johnny was captain of his school’s basketball team and helped lead them to a 15-8 record and a Provincial Championship bid for the first time in four years. He was named player of the game at three tournaments and led the team to a 1st place finish, two 2nd place finishes and three 3rd place finishes in tournament play. He is a member of the cross-country team, a peer tutor, debate team, WCI leadership retreat, program co-leader for the YMCA Steve Nash program, yearbook editor, grad committee member, assistant coach of the junior varsity basketball team, and a score keeper and minor official for basketball at the school and in the surrounding community. He is a leader, hard worker and is invested emotionally in his team. He knows when to be a master of his craft and when to be the student. Johnny is a natural coach and mentor, and works tirelessly on improving his skills, pushes himself and his teammates with a tenacity that does not quit.
