BYU fans are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2016-17 season when TJ, Nick,
Mika and all of the other great players that have already signed with BYU are
together on the court at the Marriott Center.
Not just a phenomenal Basketballer, but a great young man. May God walk with
you in France, and we anticipate your return after the most important work of
your life to this point is completed with honor.
Way to go TJ! I've followed Lone Peak basketball for several years now
that the team has been in the national limelight and the times I've seen
you play have greatly impressed me. I believe that there is another terrific
Haws on BYU's horizon, which bodes well for their team. Equally important
(actually more so--), you've the character and commitment to your Church
and community that earns you role-model stature. I've been around long
enough to remember what a great BB player you're father was. What a
magnificent tribute to him to have his sons excel as he did, following in his
footsteps both on the basketball court and in the Church. Thank you for being
true to the faiths.
I hope he stays all 4 years at the Y before he goes to the NBA.
To ManInTheMiddle -No disrespect to Shawn Bradley, but you couldn't
be more wrong. When considering the best basketball player, one needs to
consider the competition level of the opponents from which the stats came.
Clearly, no player in Utah history has amassed the stats of Haws, against the
level of competition he had to play against, for all 4 years. His senior year
was further evidence of his greatness - T.J. Haws played the entire year with a
huge red bullseye on his chest, and the fate of his team on his back. Anyone
watching his final high school game can attest to the amazing nature of what he
has accomplished. Kudos to you, T.J!
There is no debate here - Shawn Bradley is BY FAR the best prep basketball
player in Utah history. You can debate his year in college and 12 years in the
NBA, but what isn't debatable is that he dominated high school basketball
unlike any other.His senior season he averaged 25 points, 17
rebounds and 9 blocks per game (often in limited minutes).
Nice shoes in your photo TJ. Very cool!
I've seen TJ play a couple of times in person and the thing that stood out
along with his uncanny basketball IQ and passing skills in his physique. He is
really skinny almost frail looking. It will be interesting to see how he does at
the next level, I hope for the best.
Wow.. what an impressive basketball resume, one that is seldom if ever equaled.
They sky is the limit as for as TJ's potential goes. It will be extra fun
and interesting to continue following his basketball career.It's interesting and also telling that both the boy and girl recognized
as the best high school basketball players in the state this year have committed
to go to BYU. The future for basketball in both genders continues to look very
bright at BYU.Congratulations, TJ. We all wish you the best in your
future, both on and off the court..
Way to go TJ!! Can't wait to see you in a couple years!
