The Tyler Star News athlete of the week for July 19, is soon to be senior Nate Lancaster. Lancaster has been a letterman in football and basketball throughout his high school career and is looking to get his fourth in both sports this coming school year.
Nate has spent a good deal of his summer vaction working in the weight room at TCHS to improve his strength and put on body muscle. From the looks of him he has done just that! He has also spent time in the gym working on his shooting , and ball handling skills, in preperation for the fall basketball season, he is a player that can be used as a shooting guard, or the small forward position. He has also been a regular in the tough Sistersville adult basketball league, as a member of the Knights varsity team.
Right now though football is what’s on his mind as he is spending time working on his speed and endurance as the season is fast approaching. “Lifting and running and working to make myself an impact player is my goal, I feel I can make a difference in the backfield and fill the void left by Jace (Reed) and Tyler (Anderson),”said Lancaster.
Sports however are not the only thing on Nate’s mind as he is already thinking about life after high school. He is undecided where at this time but wants to enter college after graduation, and is considering WVU where he wants to major in Biology, or Physical Therapy.
Nate is just as impressive in the class room as he is on the field or the court, he has maintained a 3.7-3.8 grade point average and has been a regular on the TCHS honor roll. He said he has enjoyed his time at Tyler and wants to leave an impression for the younger to follow when he’s gone.
“I hoping to help our football team improve on our 6-4 record from last year, with my main goal of beating Magnolia at home, and of course winning the LKC, ” added Lancaster. Lancasters, coaches had nothing but good things and praise to say about him as a person and his work ethic as an athlete.
