Toyota Team Player: Donovan Louis

Donovan Louis

Potomac's Donovan Louis helped the Panthers win their first state outdoor track and field title since 1999.

Louis passed up on Division I football offers to focus on track.

"I had a lot of people tell me I should stay playing football, but I just followed my heart," said Louis.

Louis soared 24 feet 8 inches in his final long jump attempt at the Virginia State Championships to win the 5A State Title while adding half a foot to the state-leading mark he set at Regionals.

While he is taking it one jump at a time, Louis hopes to compete in the Olympics one day.

"My whole life goal," Louis said.

Congratulations Donovan Louis you are this week's Toyota Team Player.
