Brookings Nagy grew up around the game

Posted: Updated:

    You would think after winning back to back Summit League titles, and coaching in the NCAA tournament, Scott Nagy wouldn't get nervous at a high school game.  Like any other parent, its nerve racking, its hard to watch.

  "I know he has put in a good deal of time.  I'm proud of what hes doing, its fun for me to watch, but I go home a wreck like I would in one of our games." says Scott Nagy.

  Scott's son Tyler is the leading scorer at Brookings High School, tallying nearly 25 points a game, but what else would you expect from the son of a coach.

 "I get to work out with my dad's team in the summer which has been awesome, grown leeps and bounds practicing with them."  says Tyler.

  One of those players Tyler got to work out with over the summer was former Jackrabbit star and current Milwauke Buck, Nate Wolters.

  "Through the friendship aspect and being able to work out he's a greatt player.  I would go up to the gym and he would be their working out and be like hey wanna work out and obviously im not gonna say no." says Tyler.

  While Tyler has been crafting his game for the last four years in gyms all over Brookings, Scott has been doing his best to make the transition from coach to fan.

  "I try to be as quiet as I can during a game and let it be his deal because it is and like I said I have been really proud of how its been." says Scott.

  As the high school season comes to an end, Tyler will certainly contunite to play basketball…the question now is where?

   "Gonna play somewhere as of now, no idea, just gonna waiting for it out." says Tyler.

    "Doesn't matter to me, mostly his choice. certainly I'll agree with whatever he wants, it's his life and I can give him guidence but it is his decesion." says Nagy.

   And wherever Tyler ends up playing, he will always have his biggest fan in the stands.
