#YearInReview! (Long Post Alert)... Tyje' Kelton, #22, Age 14, TRUE Freshman, 5'11.5", 150lbs, PG/SF, 2016-2017 Dunellen High School Varsity Basketball, New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association - #NJSIAA, Group 1, Greater Middlesex Conference #GMChoops, Gold Division.
#tyjekeltoncompleted his last game of the 2016-2017 season on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 with his 9th (ninth) #doubledoublescoring 13 points & 11 rebounds with 3 assists; 2 steals; 1 block, and 1 three-pointer in their #dunellendestroyersloss to Group 2 Spotswood. It was "Senior Night" and our 3 #destroyerstrongGraduating Seniors had a wonderful send-off!
Now, after 25 hard-fought games and winning twice as many games in 2016-2017 (8-17 record) compared to last year's team 2015-2016 (4-21 record), we close the stat book on my son Tyje' Keltons' remarkable break-out Freshman year as a #varsitybasketballstarter. And yes, this #proudmommade a souvenir scrapbook too! *Giggles*
Here are Tyje's final stats for 2016-2017:
25 Varsity games played (100% Varsity games started as a TRUE Freshman); 359=Total Points (14.4=PPG); 121=2FG Made; 22=3FG Made (0.9=3FG Made PG); 143=Total FG Made; 206=Rebounds Total (8.2=RPG); 9=Double-Doubles; 51=Free-Throws Made (2.0=Free-Throws PG); 65=Assists (2.6=APG); 48=Steals (1.9=SPG); and 12=Blocks (0.5=BPG). What a high achieving season with noteworthy recognition on the state, county, and local levels. Chapter ends! Page turn! Greater is coming! And my son Tyje' Kelton is still #Humble, #MildMannered, and #HardWorking! That's my boy!
