This week's featured athlete is Alonzo Stafford. Alonzo is a junior forward for the CCC men's basketball team. Alonzo transfered to Central Christian in 2013, but was redshirted for the 2013-2014 season. In his first year in a Tiger uniform, the 6'7" forward has made an immediate impact. He is currently second on the team in scoring, averaging 14.4 ppg, and he is first on the team in rebounding averaging 8.1 boards per contest. He recently had a birthday last Friday night. On his birthday he scored a career high 27 points against the OKWU Eagles.
He is probably best known for his ability to electrify his teammates and the crowd with his athletic dunking ability. In last weekend's games against OKWU and HINU, Alonzo had 11 dunks, including several alley oops from his teammates.

When he is not on the basketball court, Alonzo likes to spend his free time watching basketball on TV and playing video games. His favorite bible passage is Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 "a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
