ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - On Friday, Peabody High School named quarterback Tyriq Miles as their Student of the Year.

Along with this accolade, Mile recently scored a 30 on the ACT test.

He also has five college offers to play football, but according to him, it’s never been all about sports. In the Miles household, academics come before athletics.

“My parents, specifically my mother, always instilled in us (Tyriq and Thomas) the idea of being a student-athlete ‚” Miles said. “Grades come first. You always have to get tour work done before you go to the football field or basketball court. It’s very important to be a student before you’re an athlete. They always instilled that is us since we were younger.”
