Sports: Basketball and FootballClass: JuniorClaim to fame: A wide receiver during the fall, the 6-foot-2 Byrd caught 15 passes and a touchdown for the Hornets and will try to help lead the basketball team after earning all-district honors last year. Which is your favorite sport: football or basketball?“Basketball – I like the competition on the court and playing against people that are my size and bigger.”

How did you get into basketball?“When I was little, I would go outside and just shoot the basketball in the yard. My dad thought I was pretty good so he signed me up to play in city league. I liked it – I scored 142 points for the whole season on the three-man team and then they moved me up to the five-man team after the third game and I started playing with the older guys.”
