“Tyler is a self made player who has spent countless hours in the gym to develop his game.Tyler Nelson has accomplished many great things on the basketball court. His passion to win and his ability to make big plays in the biggest of games is a characteristic that is unmatched by many at this level. Tyler is a self made player who has spent countless hours in the gym to develop his game. Despite being labeled as too small or not athletic enough, Tyler outshines his competition because of his work ethic and his skill set. However, what makes a special young man is how he carries himself off the court. He is respectful and appreciative of all the experiences and opportunities that he has been a part of. His willingness to do for others and mentor the younger players is at the core of who he is as a human being. Tyler Nelson is a great high school basketball player but more importantly he is an even better person.”
