DJ Steward, the Sun-Times Player of the Year, had the luxury of just being a normal kid. That may explain why he seems to be having so much fun on the court.
Steward is known as much for his smile as his skill. He plays with a lightness and joy that reminds fans of what high school basketball should be, but so rarely is. Especially in Chicago.
“I’m just always happy,” Steward said. “I’m playing a game I love to play and always out there having a good time.“
