Mapleton- Tyler Boyack is one of the leaders on a talented Golden Eagles team that will compete for a Region 8 title and make some noise in this years state tournament. Tyler is a 6’3 and 170 pound pure point guard for Maple Mountain.

Tyler has an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time on defense, his great length for the point guard position allows him to get into passing lanes and create extra possessions for his team. Tyler says, “The best part of my game is my vision and ability to space the floor with my ability to shoot from deep.”

Tyler is an exceptional floor general and always has his eyes up when the ball is in his hands. He truly makes everyone around him better and brings a quiet confidence and demeanor to the whole Maple Mountain team.

Before he gets to the college level, strength and quickness will need to improve, but Tyler has room to grow and could be 6’5 or 6’6 when he fully matures and gets back from a mission . Tyler says, “Our goal is to win our region and get to state, when we get there we are looking to cut down the nets and win the whole thing.”

Maple Mountain is currently in first place in Region 8 and Tyler played for ASL Hoops in the AAU circuit and could be a great fit at a Jr College or NCAA D2. Tyler will serve a 2 year LDS mission and will be eligible to start his college career in the 2019-2020 season.
