Lelan O'Brien will tell you he didn't know if he could make it as a tennis player, given that he just started playing as a high school freshman.
Judging from the last couple of years, he has nothing to worry about.
Lelan is undefeated for Carthage in two years of league play, with an 18-0 record. He was a league all-star both years and placed second in sectionals this year.
The best news for Carthage? He's a junior, so Lelan will be back for one more year.
Lelan is our 7 News - Watertown Savings Bank North Country Athlete Of The Week for June 1, 2018. To see a little of Lelan in action, and hear from him, click on the picture above this post to watch Mel Busler's report.
