STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: MORGAN CAGE

Hi! I am Morgan Cage, a 20 year old from Atlanta, GA. I have been playing tennis since I was 5 years old under my coach, Sam Kennedy. Through the South Atlanta Community Tennis Association, a chapter of the National Tennis Foundation, Coach Sam has brought kids of all demographics, social and economic backgrounds, and walks of life together using the sport of tennis. I am proud to say that I am one of those kids! With his development and the sponsorship that I- and other many other players, received from the NTF,I was able to accomplish the goals I set as a youngster, athletically and academically. Now, I am a junior at Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN majoring in Business Administration, with a degree concentration in Management. Here I am blessed to live out every young tennis player’s dream of competing at the D1 college level! I have a cumulative 4.0 GPA that I am extremely proud of and post-grad plans to attend Law school at Vanderbilt University. I can easily and honestly say that none of this would have been possible without my amazing Coach and the unending support we’ve received from the National Tennis Foundation.
