Lincoln, IL – Lincoln College head basketball coach Pat Lepper recently added Rockford Auburn’s point guard Trayvon Tyler to his 2016-17 men’s basketball roster.  The 6’0” 3rd team All-Stater averaged 18.4 points per game while handing out 5.0 assists per game and adding 3.9 steals per game.  Tyler graduates as the 11th all-time leading scorer at Rockford Auburn High School.

“Without Tray embracing the mantle of leadership, we would never have been in contention to go to State,” said Tyler’s high school head coach Bryan Ott.  “Tray led an unlikely collection of young, small, totally inexperienced players to the cusp of playing for a state championship.  He went from sixth man as a junior to a superstar as a senior.  I have never been more proud of any player!”

Tyler led the Knights to a 25-8 overall record and 13-3 in the NIC-10.  He was named 1st Team All-Conference and also to the IBCA All-Star Game.  Tyler was named to the All-Tournament team at the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic and the RPS Tipoff Tournament.

“We are extremely excited about the addition of Tray to our program,” said LC head coach Pat Lepper.  “He brings a winning mentality and toughness to the team.”
