BB Student-Athlete: Isaiah Boyd

Isaiah Boyd is a senior combo guard for Central High School boys’ basketball team. Boyd can be
described as a real student-athlete as his performance and dedication in the classroom and court are
amazing. His GPA is a 3.6 and has made A, B Honor Roll the last three school years. He is involved in
many high school clubs; he is a member of the Student Council, Debate team, Future Business Leaders
of America (FBLA) and serves as Secretary of the Chess Club. Isaiah has had a great season on the
court this summer as he has emerged as Central’s team captain and leader. Also, he contributed to
the success of his AAU team (South Atlanta Knights) this summer by being a standout player. Isaiah
understands that regular season games are won during the summer when there are no spectators in the
gym.
It was a privilege coaching and training Isaiah this summer but our work is not done. With his senior
season approaching faster than ever, we have amped up BB workouts to be better prepared for the
coming season. Isaiah has accepted the leadership role he now takes on and to better prepare him for
the expectations of a leader, him and I spend a lot of time discussing the game of basketball. His BB
training sessions are very informative; we discuss play options that will be more efficient and effective
in-game situations. Isaiah is a true student of the game with an outstanding basketball IQ.
After graduating from Central High School, Isaiah has set a goal to play college basketball. Tennessee
Temple University, Wingate University, and Newberry College have shown interest in signing him to a basketball scholarship. He intends to major in Biology.
