Brothers Garner Attention for Leadership on Football Team

The opening of this year’s Fall Athletics season has brought some attention to Covenant football players Nic Sanker ‘20 and his brother Jonas Sanker ‘21.
Nic was named CBS 19’s Student Athlete of the Week last week and Jonas was Falcon Club Player of the week on NBC29 this week. Both are vital members and leaders of Covenant’s state champion football team, but both bring their unique gifts to the team. Nic’s leadership on the football team has been noted by his coaches, teammates, and the Charlottesville community. Last year, he was named the VISFL Defensive Player of the Year. Jonas scored 7 touchdowns and threw 3 touchdowns during last week’s game against Kenston Forest and helped bring the team to victory. Both Jonas and Nic model to their team what it means to truly work as a team. During last week’s game, those 3 passes from Jonas were all thrown to Nic. We can expect even greater things from the Sanker boys and Covenant’s football team as the year progresses.
