East English Village Prep’s Cedrick Lattimore scored 21 points with 12 rebounds in a victory against defending state Class B champion Country Day after scoring 15 points in a loss to top Detroit Public School League contender Cass Tech.
The Bulldogs’ 6-4 sophomore forward has been named PSL Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
Lattimore has a 3.0 grade point average and tutors at Clark Elementary-Middle School twice a week.
“He’s always working to get better.” Bulldogs’ coach Juan Rickman said. “He can create his own shot because he can handle the ball or he can play in the
post with his back to the basket. When he plays well, we usually win.”
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 sponsored for the fourth year in a row by Detroit-area McDonald’s owner-operators.
