The Jewish Link and The Humble Toast would like to recognize Nathan Wild as this week’s Sportstar of the week. The Moriah School eighth grader was the high scorer for the Moriah Mountaineers basketball team and earned all tournament honors at the first ever Moriah Invitational tournament and the Hustle & Heart tier two championship. When asked about his high scoring guard, Moriah coach Jon Katz told The Jewish Link, “It was a pleasure to coach Nathan. He is well respected by all of his teammates both on and off the court. Nathan’s freakish athleticism is unparalleled I expect big things from him when he starts playing high school basketball next season.”
