Toyota High School Athlete- Syracuse Academy of Science star Lyrik Jackson

Lyrik Jackson

How does one capture our attention to be named Toyota High School Athlete of the Week?

Well, leading all of Central New York in scoring and leading your team to a stellar record is one sure-fire way to do it.

Lyrik Jackson is a star for Syracuse Academy of Science, and she's leading the way in Section III averaging 26 points per game.

All the way, the Atoms are 10-2 on the season, poised to push into the Section III playoffs.

Lyrik's coach, Reginald Pickard says she's one of the hardest workers he's seen.

Pickard points out that Jackson even gets into the gym on her "days off" just to get a few more shots up.

Proof of that hard work is hard to miss, the staggering results continued on Thursday when Lyrik came tantalizingly close to the mythical triple-double.

In a lopsided win over LaFayette, Jackson scored 31 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and recorded 5 steals.

Yeah, she's pretty good.
