2003 Spotlight: Tyler Relph

McQuad Jesuit fell just short of its state title over the weekend. However, the team returns its star players for another run next year. One of the key guys is point guard Tyler Relph.

Interest Coming From A Number of Levels

Tyler Relph's season probably didn't end the way he envisioned it, but 24-3 isn't bad. The team lost in the state finals but returns all the key ingredients, including big man Ryan Pettinella, for another run next season.

Relph led the team in scoring at just over 21 a game. He eclipsed the 1,200 point mark for his career. Villanova was on hand to see the state title game over the weekend.

Seton Hall has shown interest as well as Big East partner Pittsburgh. NC State has seen him a few times, according to his coach. St. Joe's, William and Mary, Rhode Island and most of the smaller schools in the region really like him. The Rams have offered a scholarship.

"I don't think he's set on any one place," McQuad Jesuit coach Joe Marchese said. "I think he's going to wait and see how it all plays out. A lot will depend on what happens this summer."

Relph will play for a local AAU team and also travel with Mickey Walker's bunch to some major AAU events. He'll attend the Nike All-American Camp.
