Coaches Comments: Skyler is the quintessential “Gym Rat” in terms of her commitment to the game and hard work. An uncanny ability to get to the basket is what allowed Skyler to lead us in scoring a year ago. After a summer of countless jumpers expect Skyler to show more range on her shot this season. She possesses a great command of fundamentals mixed with the best Euro Step in the area. A hard nose kid, Skyler realizes that basketball games are won at both ends of the floor. Truly an elite defender Skyler led our team in steals a year ago. Most importantly Skyler plays the game with passion, respect, and a true love for the sport.
