Totally #Awesome! 🏆 Congratulations to my son #TyjeKelton 2020, Age 15, Soph, Dunellen, ranked as Top 10 Statewide Stat Leaders Every Week Consecutively For The Entire 2017-18 #NJSIAA #Varsity #Basketball Season. #NJhoops @gmchoops
NJ Star-Ledger/@NJdotcom published their final look at the state's stat leaders today, Monday, March 26, 2018. See full listing here http://www.nj.com/hssn-mms/2018/03/njcoms_2018_boys_basketball_al.html
My son Tyje' spent TEN (10) CONSECUTIVE WEEKS in the TOP 10 in multiple statistical categories throughout the entire regular season. Unfortunately, with only 1 post-season game played before his #Dunellen Destroyers team got knocked out of the State Tournament, Tyje's overall games played total only reached 26 compared to players who made it to the Tournament Of Champions with upwards of 34 games played.
As a result, Tyje' dropped off of the Top 10 list in the REBOUNDS category to Final Rank: 11th in REBOUNDS with 302 Total & 11.6 Average in 26 games. To my surprise, Tyje's performance in the STEALS category not only maintained his posiition in the post-season Top 10 with no additional games played, but also climbed to Final Rank: Tied-5th in STEALS with 108 Total & 4.2 Average in 26 games.
Now, when all is said and done, Tyje' Kelton's final statistical ranking is actually not just Top 10, but improved to Top 5 at number 5 for STEALS for the entire State of NJ. And the beauty of it all is that Tyje' is the YOUNGEST player on the list having started his Sophomore season at 14 years old before his 15th birthday in December 2017 with this season closing out 3 months later in March 2018 and he's still just 15 years old!
