Woodbridge’s Tyler Thomas ’19 agreed to play basketball for the DI Sacred Heart Pioneers. A student at Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, Mass., he signed a national letter of intent during a February 4 ceremony recognizing 14 Williston students signing to play college sports.
Tyler spent his post-graduate year at Williston after graduating from Amity Regional High School in Woodbridge. He gave credit to his close-knit Wildcat teammates and said he’s excited for this next phase in his young career.
More outspoken about Tyler’s achievements was teammate James Lustig of Wenham, Mass., who said playing with Tyler is “transcendent.” Asked to elaborate on such praise, he said, “really, it’s different than playing with everyone else. He’s such a talented and committed hard worker. And he can jump.” James and fellow teammate Aidan Burke of Easthampton, Mass., laughed at the understatement. “I mean really jump. And shoot. Really shoot.”
