Interview with Cass Tech’s Kyle Steward

9 Jan


Kyle Steward Kyle Steward is a long armed 6’7″ small forward/shooting guard transfer from Crockett.  After Crockett closed, and merged with Finney to form East English Village Prep Academy, Kyle decided to take his talents to Cass Tech, and join up with already well-known players in the state, D’Andre Johnson, and DeAngelo Stewart.  Kyle’s game is a unique one.  He is a freak of nature.  He can bounce out of the gym and bring the crowd down with.  He excels in the open floor.  Either pulling up or driving to the basket.  He will absolutely add  much-needed height, and athleticism to Cass Tech if they wish to compete for a state title.
