Meet Korion Pryor, a Dora High School senior whose talents extend beyond the sports arena. A tri-sport athlete, Korion has been making an impact as a receiver, tight end, outside linebacker, and defensive end for coach Chavis Williams, runs 100, 200, 400-meter races, 4×100 and 4×400 as well as shotput for track coach Roy Upchurch, and is a heavyweight in wrestling for coach Ronnie Henderson.
Korion has also proven himself to be a remarkable student. When he’s not busy with his sports commitments, you might find him studying chemistry, his favorite subject. He is also a proud Senior Beta Club member and a Peer Helper. Korion has a beyond-perfect GPA of 4.32
“I have a younger brother who is a freshman and a twin brother. We couldn’t play together when we were younger because of the age difference, but I love being on the same team now,” he says.
As he looks ahead to his graduation in May 2024, Korion plans to pursue higher education by attending an Ivy League school where he wants to major in pre-law or political science.
Korion is the son of Keith and Chesa Prior.
Congratulations, Korion, on your athletic and academic accomplishments. We wish you the best in your future endeavors! WL
