Tyrell Sturdivant, senior on the basketball team at Stony Brook University, is our student-athlete of the week. The native of Chester, PA started all 32 games in the 2016-2017 season and was named to the All-America East Third Team. While leading his team in rebounding last season, he was also ranked among the top 10 in rebounding in the league. This elite rebounder has dreams of breaking Stony Brook's rebounding record. 

Tyrell is thankful that Coach Boals, who is a former assistant at The Ohio State University, brought The 2nd & 7 Foundation to his team because of the platform it provides for the players to make a difference. Tyrell shares, “My favorite part of being involved in The 2nd & 7 Foundation is seeing the kids excited to see us and put a smile on their face. Also being able to interact and let them ask questions about being a student-athlete."
