This week, the South Tama County Middle School Student-Athlete Spotlight is on Courage Tyon. Courage is an 8th grader at STC. He is a point guard for the Trojan basketball team.
Courage is an avid basketball player. He is a member of the Meskwaki Blazers traveling squad as well and watches or plays as much basketball as he can get.
The 8th grade Trojan team has posted a stellar 7-1 record so far this season in great part due to Courage's ball handling skills. "He is the first guy that everyone looks to outlet to for fast breaks or to set up the offense", says Coach Peska.
Courage enjoys spending time with his teammates off the court whether that be with pick-up basketball games or playing Halo.
Courage is the son of Jolene Davenport and Cheyenne Tyon of Rural Tama.
