Harpeth High School basketball standout Devin Copeland is one of the three finalists for the “I Am Sport” Award by The Tennessean.

The “I Am Sport” Award is a contest created to honor high school student athletes who are committed to giving back to the youth in their communities.

Copeland, who was named the District 9-AA Player of the Year, has given back to the community through Special Olympics.

A senior, Copeland has played Unified basketball, volleyball and track with Special Olympics during his four years at HHS.

He said Special Olympics means the world to him, and he hopes to work for the program after college.

“Being named a finalist for this award is a huge honor. Special Olympics have always been a part of my life, and I appreciate all the opportunities I’ve had through the program,” Copeland said.

Copeland hopes to play basketball in college.

The winner of the award will be announced on June 3 during The Tennessean’s annual Sports Awards, which will be held at the Music City Center in Nashville.
