Super 30: No. 14 Tyler Lockett, Tulsa Washington
I could’ve talked to Tyler Lockett for another hour when I had him on the phone for an interview earlier this week. There were a dozen more things I would’ve liked to bounce off him, just to understand what shaped him, what his young life was like as the son of an NFL player, stuff like that.
Heck, I barely touched on basketball long enough to find out if he’ll play for Shea Seals’ defending 5A champs again next season — and the answer is, ‘yes.’
But as great as all that would’ve been for me, I’m sure an 18-year-old has better things to do in the middle of the summer. So we’ll come back to that other stuff another day.
Still, I came away with a lot of interesting stuff that wasn’t able to make it into Friday’s story about Lockett, No. 14 on our Super 30 list. Here are a few of the leftover nuggets from the Tulsa Washington star:
On Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, who coached Tyler’s father, Kevin, and uncle, Aaron: “I wanted to play for a legendary coach. I think coach Snyder is a great coach, and I think he’ll get the Wildcats back to the top again.”
