Saginaw Arthur Hill’s Tyler Dwyer will join Flint Powers’ all-state guard Demarco Sanders at Ferris State this fall. Dwyer, who transferred to Arthur Hill from Saginaw Heritage, is an undersized power forward who did the bulk of the Lumberjacks’ heavy lifting last season. He was shorter, but half-again as strong as his forward counterparts at Arthur Hill, Kwincey Tucker and Jordan Hare.
At only about 6-3, Dwyer is among the most impressive rebounders and interior defenders I saw last season. He makes plays with his will, often alone, which is something rarely seen at this level. He was the consumate team player at Arthur Hill, and I hope he can do the same at Ferris State.
Amazing to think that of the heralded class of 2010 at Heritage (Thomas, Jones, Johnson, Smith, Wright, Brackens, etc.), Dwyer is playing at the highest level.
Hard work pays off.
