Tiy Reed, son of Tausha Stevenson and Ty Reed, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week.
He is a junior at Battle Ground Academy and a member of the Varsity boys Track & Field team. He competes in sprints and the long jump.
Reed said that his biggest accomplishment this season was qualifying for the state meet and helping the team achieve a personal record in the 4×1.
He started running when he enrolled at BGA in the sixth grade and has been competing ever since.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing, he said that “wanting to be the best” and “being the ultimate competitor” are things he always keeps in mind.
“There’s no excuse for someone to work harder than you,” he added.
After graduating from BGA next year, Reed said he plans to go to college and continue pursuing a football, and possibly track, career.
