Trevon Redding has work to do before he heads to Ferris State to play football.
The Michigan Collegiate senior is looking to break his brother Teo’s school record in the 110-meter hurdles in the Division 3 track race on June 4.
Redding didn’t race that race at Thursday’s Macomb County Invitational Boys Meeting, but he had an active and productive day.
He won the long jump, placed fourth in the high jump and placed second in the photo finish in the 300m hurdles.
“I’m getting ready for states right now,” he said.
Redding qualified for the state finals in both hurdles events, the long jump and high jump. He was regional champion in three of the events and met the qualifying standard in the high jump.
Would he try to attend all four at the Kent City meetup?
“I don’t know,” he said. “It would be a really busy day.”
Redding had a mark of 22 feet, 3 inches to win the county long jump championship. The 22-7.75 he posted at Bishop Foley Regional was a school record. Teo is second on the Cougars career list at 21-10.75.
Teo, who played soccer at Bowling Green State, holds the high hurdle record with a 14.65 and the intermediates with a 39.70, and he holds the mark in the high jump with a 6-8.
Trevon Redding completed the 300 hurdles in 39.88 and was second by 0.01 seconds to Anchor Bay’s Matheu Morrison.
“It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had,” Redding said. “I knew it was going to be a tough race.”
Redding helped the Michigan Collegiate advance to the State Division 6 football championship game in November.
He was recruited to play slot receiver at Ferris State, the 2021 NCAA Division II champion.
“I have to work – lift weights to get stronger in the summer,” he said.
Morrison, who also won the high hurdles, led Anchor Bay to the team championship. Morrison, a senior who hasn’t run a hurdle race until this season, finished the highs with a 15.37.
Thomas Westphal gave the Tars a first place finish in the 1600 in 4:18.18.
He finished second in the 800 ahead of Trent McFarland of Utica, whose time was 1:55.54. McFarland was second to Westphal in the 1600.

Romeo’s Connor Clor won the 3200 heat. The second year ended in 9:42.09.
Lakeview’s Julian Holt won the high jump 6-3 and Dakota’s Riley Smalarz led the shot put field 47-9.
The discus throw was postponed to Friday due to the weather.
