Joliet photographer John Parli is recognizing Joliet Patch's Athlete of the Month each month with a portrait such as the one above of Joliet West basketball standout Morris Dunnigan.
Parli will present a digital image to Dunnigan as a keepsake to mark the occasion.
Dunnigan, a 6-foot-2 senior guard/forward, erupted for 25 of his game-high 32 points in the second half of Joliet West's 60-49 victory over Joliet Central on Jan. 4. He is averaging about 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists.
Dunnnigan was selected as Joliet Patch's Athlete of the Month for January from a list of Patch MVP weekly winners by Patch Sports Editor Ron Kremer.
The other weekly winners were Ryan Peters (JCA basketball), Julianne Kowalski (Joliet West bowling), Brandon McCullum (Joliet West basketball) and Destiny Nash (JCA basketball).
