Calvin Ford was missed in the 2016-2017 season as he was out of action with a torn ACL.
But in this, his senior season, Ford has come back strong and has been a steady hand for the Eagles on the court. He's currently averaging 11.7 points per game and 9.4 rebounds. In the classroom, his numbers are even more impressive as he has a 3.9 grade point average.
Head coach Jimmy Kinard said he recently told Airport principal Brad Coleman "If the school had 1,300 Calvin Fords, I could do this a long time."
Ford's achievements in the classroom and the court are only overshadowed by his commitment to volunteering in the community. He is part of a program to feed those in need and he plays the drums at his church.
