Tech. Sgt. Martez "Tez" Banks stands well above six-foot with a built figure, neither slim nor stocky and most who meet him wouldn't assume the 45 year-old's athletic prowess.
The Air Force Reservist and Palace Acquire intern paired up with friend Michelle Staley to win the combined mixed 8.0 doubles tennis title at the Techna-Glass Adult Ice Breaker tournament earlier this month in Salt Lake City.
And in a sport where most players learn to play tennis around the same time they learn to talk, Banks, who is self-taught, stands as an oddity.
