Every coach is overjoyed when they get a player that has natural, God-given talent on their team. But when that player already has the ability, and still devotes the majority of his free time to getting better, that is a coach's fantasy.
Bruning-Davenport/Shickley head basketball coach Fred Kluck has been fortunate to have such a player on his team in senior Ryan Tegtmeier. The Eagles star was named Tribland's Player of the Year, after being selected to the first-team the previous two years.
Tegtmeier has been a dominant force on the court for the past three years, drawing the attention of coaches and frustrating opponents. The senior helped BDS amass 61 wins in the last three seasons. This year, he led the Eagles in points, rebounds and assists per game as well as field goal percentage. Few can deny that Tegtmeier has the total package.
