Matthew Koshy, son of Tina Tsui and Sunny Koshy, is a senior at Brentwood High School and this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Varsity Tennis Team. This season, Koshy and his doubles partner Derrick Chen beat their Dickson County rival in a match, an accomplishment he is very proud of.
Koshy said he remembers first becoming interested in tennis when he was much younger, playing it in the basement with his father, using a jump rope as a net.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said simply, “winning a State Championship.”
BHS Tennis Coach Bud Robison said of Koshy, “Matthew is simply a pleasure to be around. As one of five seniors, he stepped forward, bringing a level of energy and enthusiasm that has created quite a positive team dynamic. With his natural leadership ability, we look forward to achieving a high level of success this regular season and beyond.”
Outside of tennis, he enjoys playing recreational soccer.
After graduating from BHS this year, he plans to attend Clemson University.
