City League Stars: Dom Aekins

City League Stars showcases CCS' outstanding student-athletes and their collegiate goals.

Dom Aekins, class of 2024, is a fantastic basketball player at Walnut Ridge High School. The point guard can make 3-point shots no matter how close defenders are sticking him, and he constantly wows the crowd with how easily he's able to dribble past defenders, even when getting double teamed.

Coach Charles Jefferson sees Dom's growth this year as a junior, and he can only imagine how good he can be as a senior next year. He also believes Dom will be able to make an immediate impact on a college team as a freshman to whatever school he ends up at.

Dom wants to study engineering because his brother studied engineering, and he wants to follow in his footsteps. He also considers his teammates his brothers, and he loves how he can always look up to them whenever he needs help.
