Three Athletes Named For Player of the Week
The Players of the week ending Dec. 30, for Tyler County are a trio of Basketball players from Paden City and Tyler Consolidated. Aaron Heasley, a junior, forward hit for 12 points and collared seven rebounds in the Wildcats big win on Monday, Dec. 21, over a 6-1 River team. Heasley at 6’0” has grown 4″ since last year and may be one of the best shooters in the area.
Teammate Hayden Hizer a junior point guard also had a nice game against River as he accounted for 10 points all on free throws, hitting eight in a row during clutch time in the fourth quarter. Hizer is the teams best ball handler and usually draws the toughest defense assignment. Hayden can hit from outside when left alone.
Tyler Consolidated’s Trent Smith knocked in 13 points and had 11 rebounds to propel the Silver Knights to a 58-53 win over the Rebels on the Knights home floor. Smith is a 6’2″ forward who plays good defense and works the boards well. He can also knock down the jumper. Congratulations to all three of this weeks players, keep up the good work.
