The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize Moriah School’s William Forman as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The fourth grader has been all about basketball from day one. At a very early age, William was dribbling, shooting and taking layups, right alongside his two older brothers. It has been his passion that just keeps growing with every year. He loves going to go to basketball tournaments with his dad (Dovey Forman) and especially enjoys being a part of the team; whether he’s playing or helping out.Whether doing the books or keeping the scoreboard, there’s nothing that William won’t take on as long as he gets to be around the energy and the excitement of the game.
