    My son went to a camp at SC and Tyler made a special effort to help my son and they actually built a friendship during the camp. I always appreciated his kindness for taking time out on a more personal basis to talk and help my son. Not only was he a very good player, but even better as a human being.

    Prayers and condolences on the way to the Hicks family and SC community.
