Aubri 1, Not sure what your point has to do with this article? TJ shoots
48% from the field, so I or any recruiter would hope he would shoot a hundred
shots a game! I saw him score 40 this year and he didn't even play the 4th
quarter. The kid is amazing and shoots an extremely high percentage! So, do
the math.... he almost makes 1 out of every 2 shots he takes! and, to say that
a kid like TJ is selfish because "that's what you are if you score a
lot of points"? is ridiculous. Have you ever seen him play? I know
Dave Rose is licking his chops to get this "selfish ball-hog" back from
his mission and into his lineup! Players, like Haws, don't come around too
often, so sit back and enjoy every minute you can watching him play! I know I
will! Nice article, by the way!
"Like a coral reef barracuda." Really? Trying to hard there, chief.
I would like to see a state wide statistic for all teams by player that shows
attempts/made baskets. For years the tradition has been to list by name the high
scorers in every summary and story. No one knows how many shots that player put
up to get those points. I think that seeing this stat would help change the mind
set of recruiters and players, as well as coaches. The way it is now it just
promotes selfishness and gives a false perception of who played well.
Wow, what a real-life example. When I was a scoutmaster, almost all the boys
really thought they would be pro athletes. Haws is showing how it must be done.
He is well on his way to Malcolm Gladwell's milestone, that it takes 10,000
hours of practice to become an expert in some field. Yet as the article said,
"It has to come from the boy." I used to home teach a family, where the
boy was shooting 300+ free throws a night. He made it to the NBA.
I heard somewhere...with no validation unfortunately, but that when TJ was a
freshman Quincy Lewis said that he would one day be the best player to come out
of Lone Peak. TJ is making a pretty darn good argument for that title. And think
of the guys that have come out of there: Jackson Emery, Tyler Haws, Nick Emery,
Eric Mika...to name their powerhouses. Not to mention other solid college guys
like Bracken Funk, Josh Sharp, Nate Austin, and many other D2 or JC guys.Shows that hard work pays off! Keep tearin' it up Teej!
And the legacy will continue at BYU. He may be the best out of the Haws bunch.
I am sure that the uteh coaches are drooling at the kid. Lone Peak will be a
good pipeline for BYU.Now if BYU can just get some real good big men they
would be real tough to stop. Until then they will continue to be the best team
in the state for many years.
Bungled,Why in the world would he do that? he has already seen the light.
That is why he signed with BYU. Plus he probably does want to be forced to
play on Sunday.
@news jAnd a 4th one is on the team with him right now!
TJ is an inspiration to every aspiring young would-be and now-be basketball
player! I'm a teacher of young men and I use his example to illustrate
what it takes to be the very best you can be. Many young men think that a few
shoot-a-rounds can make them stars--it just isn't so! Jimmer is another of
my young heroes. He's dedication to basketball is legendary as well.goooooooooooooooo Cougars!
bungalow, its to late for TJ to become a Ute. He along with two other teammates
from the Lone Peak High School national championship team have committed to the
Cougars. One of them is a starter now and the other one is on a mission.
