Linebacker Keith Jones, whose fumble recovery set up Cass Tech’s game-winning touchdown last Friday in a 28-21 victory against Dearborn Fordson for the MHSAA Division 1 football district championship, has been named Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
“He plays with a lot of emotion and has performed great all season. Against Fordson, he controlled their offensive line and shut down the run on his side of the field.”
Jones was also named a PSLer of the Week as a junior and, as yet, hasn’t decided where he’ll play in college.
“He’ll get a scholarship somewhere,’’ Wilcher said. “He’s just got to keep working hard.”
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.
