Destin’s Dad, Dereko Piggee was an electric return man and lockdown defensive back in the mid 90s for the Big Reds. Dereko died at the age of 43, the same day the Big Reds faced Detroit Cass Tech earlier this season.

“We get coached hard,” Piggee said. “We really work for what we earn. We really have a brotherhood at Muskegon. When my dad died everybody showed me so much love. We still have Meechie (Dametrius Walker) still on the sidelines cheering us on and he can’t play so you know that’s hard. We all got so much love for each other.”
