Ethan Ly, son of Ethan Ly Sr. and Loc Ly, is a senior at Brentwood High School and this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Boys Tennis Team and competes in No. 3 singles. This season, he said that winning Districts was the top highlight for him.
Ly said his father encouraged him to start playing tennis when he was seven years old.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “What inspires me… is winning. That feeling you get after working so hard and when it pays off; that’s what drives me.”
One of his biggest role models is his father. “He inspires me because to me, he is the prime example of a loving, caring, and hardworking dad,” he said. “He has given me so much and I am extremely appreciative.”
Ly describes himself as calm, passionate and caring. When he’s not on the court, he enjoys playing guitar and drawing.
After graduating from BHS this spring, he plans to pursue computer engineering at The University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
