King High senior Tyrell Stephens was a double champion in the 2014 Detroit Public School League track and field championship meet May 22 at Renaissance High School. Stephens won the 110 meter high hurdles with a time of 15.85 and the 300 meter low hurdles with a time of 43.40, and has been named PSL Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
“Tyrell is a hard working athlete who has been a part of my program for three years,” King track coach Fernando Massey said. “I wish I had more dedicated runners like Tyrell. This young man exhibits leadership qualities beyond his years. He also does his job in the classroom. He has an overall (grade point average) of 3.1.”
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.
