Senior Standout: Power's Isaiah Dunk

Posted: Updated:

Isaiah Dunk… quite the last name for a basketball player who is the leading his team who is still undefeated on the season.

"We are playing good basketball and it's a lot of fun to be playing so good. We've got a lot of kids that know how to play and move the ball and we really know each other. We've been playing together for so long now," said Dunk.

Speaking of playing for a long time, Dunk is a 3-year starter for the Pirates and head coach, Zach Vick says that his experience has really helped him improve his game and do whatever it takes to better his team.

"He averages double digits usually. He gets around that 10 point mark and when he doesn't if he's in the single digits his assists and steals are pretty high. He contributes every game might not always be in points but it will be in getting other people points."

Dunk also contributes off the basketball court.

"He's a great kid. He's always involved in community activities. he's really active in music in the music program at the school here. I've never had one issue or one problem with him and he's also on the honor roll. You see him out and about working with kids and he's just a well rounded kid."

Dunk is all of those things and then some. According to his teammate and friend Hunter Smoot, Dunk is a reliable friend who can also at times be a little crazy.

"Off the walls. Every now and then he gets hyper but he's very likable - you can relate to him a lot and you can come to him if you have a problem and he'll do his best to help you," said Smoot.

Dunk will be looking to help his teammates win a class c championship this season and then after he graduates from Power he plans on heading to Missoula.

"I'm pretty set on going to UM in Missoula and studying journalism or communications."

And looking at Dunk's resume, it will be hard for him not to get a job, hopefully... he won't take one of ours!
