Tyler Granger isn’t like most high school seniors. For one he’s an accomplished long-distance runner for Lafayette Christian Academy having won district in both the mile and two mile events in track and field as a junior and winning both events again as a senior.
But Granger is much more than just a runner for LCA…he’s a founder. Granger petitioned the school to begin a track and field program as a 7th grader.
Now after accepting a track scholarship to Nicholls State University, Granger reflects on the past six years of building a program where there wasn’t one before.
