GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- WZZM and Meijer are pleased to recognize Mona Shores High School junior Tyree Jackson as our Meijer Scholar Athlete of the Week for the week of September 16th.

Tyree is a three-year starter at quarterback for the Sailor football team, which is off to a 3-0 start after beating Caledonia last week in the "13 On Your Sidelines" game of the week.

Tyree holds numerous passing records at Mona Shores and tells WZZM he would like to play college football and is drawing interest from a number of division one and two programs. Tyree also plays basketball and is on the track team at Mona Shores.

In the classroom, he holds a 3.5 grade point average and says he would like to go into education with the hopes of being a high school teacher and coach.

WZZM and Meijer congratulate Tyree for his achievements and wish him continued success!
