Multiple Teams · Committed to Excellence — Connecting with Max Hudson


As the world works to stop the spread corona virus, our nation’s sports scene has come to a halt — and rightfully so.  Although we are unable to practice or plays games as we do our part to mitigate the damage from this virus, Kent City student-athletes have taken their training home with them, demonstrating the self-discipline and work ethic that exists in the Eagle nation.

For those looking for a way to stay active and return from this departure from our normal routines in better shape and stronger than when you left, we do have PLT4M workouts accessible online that can be done at home without the use of any equipment.   We are extremely lucky to have this resource, as it offers professional guidance for our student-athletes who are already using this program paid for by the Kent City Sports Boosters.  If you do not have access contact Coach Gropp at zach.gropp@kentcityschools.org and he will help you get connected.

Today we are going to check-in with All-State football player Max Hudson.   The senior led the Eagles to a 7-4 record this past season, losing in the District finals to the eventual state champions, Pewamo Westphalia.  In basketball, Hudson and the Eagles ended the season by beating our neighbors to the west in the District semi-finals, hours before the MHSAA post-season was suspended.   Hudson has not made his plans official for next fall but one of his options is to attend Davenport University where he would play football for the Panthers.   There is no doubt that Hudson has achieved so much success because of his strong work ethic.
