Cass Tech 5-5 junior guard Taylor Parker has led the Lady Technicians in scoring through their first three games of the season, averaging 17 points against Detroit Edison, Western and Renaissance, and is the Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
“She continues to be a threat on the court with her fearless and relentless attitude on defense,” Cass Tech coach Marissa Thrower said.
“She brings her tenacity and hustle each and every game. Taylor spends an hour before each practice with her teachers making sure she is ahead in the classroom. She then comes to practice ready to work hard. As a coach you always want players that are coachable and willing to give you 110%. That is Taylor each day.”
The Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week award is representative of the league’s top boys’ and girls’ athletes. The award is presented by the DPS Office of Athletics and is sponsored by Detroit-area McDonald’s owner-operators.
