Each month the Athletic Department and the Spartan Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) selects a Spartan Athlete of the Month. The recipient for the month of February is the tandem of Adem and Sami Osmani of the boys’ basketball team.
The Osmani brothers played a huge role in the Spartans’ regular-season finale against Richards. They helped pull out the dramatic victory on the road. Adem had eight points and 15 rebounds in the game, while Sami scored 11.
This outstanding performance was coupled with stellar play in the Illinois High School Association Class 4A Regional Play-in Game against Reavis later in the season. The brothers once again played well and help Oak Lawn beat the conference rival and advance to the play in the regional semifinal.
All of that was on the court, but these brothers are also excelling in the classroom. In fact, Adem is ranked number-one in the junior class at OLCHS, and Sami is ranked number-one in the freshmen class. This has truly been a month worth noting for the Osmani boys.
