The Tracy boys are straight ballers. Just ask the Decatur Central football faithful and they’ll tell you how the Tracys are true BOSSES on the gridiron.

Senior Larry Tracy (pictured) is the best cornerback in the state’s senior class. He’s committed to Indiana University. Junior Kenny Tracy is the top all-purpose running back in the junior class and maybe all of Hoosierland. They’re first cousins. Kenny’s big bro Tyrone was a beast last season, winning Gatorade Player of The Year for the state of Indiana and is currently playing Iowa. His little bro Javon is a fab frosh at DC this season.

Anchored by Kenny’s pair of touchdowns (one rushing and one receiving), DC won a sectional title (Class 5A) last week with a 21-14 besting of Indianapolis Cathedral. It is only the second sectional crown in program history.

Kenny is the point guard on DC’s hoops squad too. He’ll have to decide which sport he’s going to play at the college level.

One thing’s for sure, when you hear the name Tracy in Decatur, you know it means EXCELLENCE!!!
