Olathe East's Caelan Neal wins HyVee Athlete of the Week

This week's HyVee Athlete of the Week is a dominating force for his team on a weekly basis.

Caelan Neal of Olathe East scored 22 points and was just two rebounds short of a double-double Friday night. The Hawks beat Grandview 67-53.

Neal nailed a buzzer beater at the end of the third quarter from just inside half-court.

"It was amazing. It was a great momentum-builder and it gave me a lot of energy," Neal said.

Olathe East has only lost this once this season.

"He's just got tremendous athletic ability. He's also a state champion triple jumper. Boy, his athleticism is something to witness," Olathe East Head Coach Jim Super said.

Olathe East took home the championship at the Saints Classic after defeating Shawnee Mission Northwest on Saturday.
