Breland boxes his way back to Little Rock

By

JOHNSON CITY — At the age of 14, Ty Breland is a rapidly growing teenager.

The Hampton Elementary School student stands at 5-9 and is up to 225 pounds. He makes a habit of disposing of his competition in the boxing ring.

Breland, who starred as a lineman on both sides of the football this past season, is gearing up for the Regional Silver Gloves — set for Jan. 15-16 in Little Rock, Ark.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Breland said on Thursday while taking a break from training at the Johnson City Athletic Club. “I went there last year, and I loved it. It was really well-put together.

“It’s a three-day tournament, and I’m just looking forward to seeing who I’m fighting. Hopefully I’m going to the nationals.”
