Tyreke's Amazing Story

If you read the sports section of the paper or you go online to read popular sports sites like and, you will see that Tyreke has won Rookie of the Year! Isn't that so amazing and exciting? I almost jumped when I saw that article and yelled ''Yes!'' And it gets better. He was asked to be on the U.S.A. national team through 2010 to 2012!

If you just read this last paragraph, you know that so many nice things happened to Tyreke this year. And in my opinion, it couldn't have happened to a nicer person. I've read that he is building a house for his mom, which means he really supports his family and is a good guy. He's such a hard worker, too, which is a great role model for kids like me. I also interviewed him at the beginning of the season, and I thought he was a really good guy, very humble even with all of the hype around him.

Another part of being a good athlete is eating healthy. And Tyreke does that really well by eating at Subway. I've read that he likes to eat Subway for lunch. And I use Tyreke's example to get my parents to buy me more $5 footlongs! (Which I'm going to try today.) Tyreke never drinks soda, which is something I'm trying to do but failing at so far. You can tell he takes care of his body because of how fast and strong he is on the court.

Congratulations, Tyreke! It's been really fun watching you this season. I knew you were going to be great from the first game you played. I can't wait to see you play again next season. Gooooo Kings!
