“Here, have fun.”

That is what Vasily Oliynyk told his grandson, 3-year-old Damir, when he handed the youngster a soccer ball. 

Damir has taken that advice and the Lockport junior soccer star has been named the 22nd Century Media’s Southwest Chicago Athlete of the Month contest for October.

The Athlete of the Month competition pits featured Athlete of the Week selections from our south suburban newspapers against one another in an online voting contest.
