Joe Helfrich

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Senior Forward Joe Helfrich with the St. Francis Borgia Knight Basketball Team. Joe finished his career at Borgia with a 15 point performance in a loss to Republic Saturday afternoon at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar. For the season, Joe averaged 12 points and eight rebounds, two assists and two steals per game. He also led the team in blocks with 17. Coach Dave Neier says Joe was a solid defender and did a lot of the things that don't show up in the box score, like diving for a loose ball and setting a screen.
