Student Athlete of the Week: Darren Granger


By: A Laya Burroughs

The student athlete of the week is Darren Granger. Darren said that he didn’t have anyone influence him when it came to sports because wanting to play sports just came naturally to him. Darren has been playing some form of basketball since he was five years old.  Darren would like basketball to be his career because basketball is what he loves to do the most.  Darren believes that you have to be willing to practice if you want to become a great player, and you have to always be willing to put forth the extra effort when it is needed.
