"Tyler is an over achiever," says Brian Fabiano, his club coach. "He is an inspiration to all of his teammates." Tyler plays with total selflessness and self sacrifice. He constantly amazes his coaches when he out plays a player 50 lbs larger. Tyler has that Joe Montana quality. He always finds a way to have an advantage over his man either defensively or offensively, regardless of the match-ups. His attitude and court intensity make him the first player called upon to shut down an opponent on fire. Every team needs a Tyler Guy if they want to win.
