Prep Extra spotlight athlete of the week: Donovan Williams, Lincoln North Star

Lincoln North Star vs. Creighton Prep, 3.7

Lincoln North Star’s Donovan Williams (3) revels in the chants of the Gators' student section as time runs down in their 56-43 win over Creighton Prep in a Class A quarterfinal on March 7 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Williams scored 20 in the victory.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a better two-game performance in Class A in recent memory than Donovan Williams' from last weekend.

The Lincoln North Star senior scored a school-record 44 points against Lincoln Northeast on Friday and followed with a 50-point showing against No. 1 Bellevue West on Saturday.

Here is more on Williams, who continues to receive a lot of Power Five recruiting interest:

Best high school sports moment so far: "Definitely my first game back from injury against Southeast. Because that’s when I realized that it was time for me to show everybody and show myself that I can do it."

Three go-to apps: "Snapchat, Clash of Clans, and Facebook because that’s what everybody from my hometown uses."

Favorite pro athlete: "Lebron James easily."

Pregame rituals or superstitions: "My only pregame ritual is that I usually go to the spot where I tore my ACL and just say thank you to God before I go play."

Favorite postgame snack: "Definitely a bag of chocolate donuts, with some Sunny D. lol."

Favorite practice drill: "3 on 2 chaser. Me and my teammates really use that time to talk trash to each other and have fun at the end of practice."
