MILWAUKEE — Ben Jelacic is a three-sport athlete at Dominican High School and the senior captain of the Knights basketball team.

On the court, he's known as the "double-double" man. Off the court, he's a serious student with a 3.9 GPA who applies himself.

"I like pushing myself in AP classes," Ben says. "Knowing where my weaknesses are and trying to get better at those."

His heart is also in the right place when it comes to dealing with classmates.

"You don't know what someone is going through, and I will always walk down the hall, and even if I don't know somebody well, I'll just ask how they are," Jelacic says. "Just to let someone know that someone is thinking about them."
