By Milan Eagle media

Geirrod Criss, a senior at Milan High School, was born in Ann Arbor July 25, 2002.
He moved to Milan when he was 5years old and started kindergarten in Milan.
Geirrod has been playing sports his whole life. He thanks his mom because she was the one that got him interested in sports.
Since 10th grade he’s run Cross Country, he was 3rd man on the team and was 6th in the Huron League. He also run distance for the Track team, run the mile, 2 mile, and he’s part of the 4×800 relay team.
Geirrod has played basketball since he was 7 years old. This year he’s a shooting guard on the varsity team. He said, “I would like to shoutout my coaches for pushing me to be my best.”
Between his sports and classes, he stays busy. His favorite subject besides gym is math. He said, “I’m undecided for what to do after high school, I’m either going to Jacksonville University in Florida to run Cross Country, or I’m going to enlist into the Army.”
“Geirrod Criss has been one of my favorite student athletes that has passed though Milan in my 11 year coaching stint.  A very team oriented young man that has always done what was asked of him.  A very supportive teammate that is always giving out words of encouragement.” Coach Chris Pope
