Hit with tragedy, sports was a savior
Steven Honrud’s goal for rehab after undergoing radiation for swelling in his brain was to see his son, Tyler, play his first varsity basketball game last November.
Tyler, 17, had the best game of his career that night, scoring 17 points in an 89-46 win for Pelican Rapids. He did it hours after his father’s funeral.
Steven passed away on Nov. 19 at 47 years old, three days before his goal, but Tyler knows his dad reached it.
