Garfield High School mad bomber Tucker Haymond has been a fixture in the Bulldogs lineup for the past 3 seasons. He was a part time starter as a freshman,averaging 5 points and 2 rebounds a contest. Last year as a super sophomore, the sharp shooter hit for 8 points and 6 rebounds a game, that while playing in the
shadow of all-everything guard Tony Wroten of the UW.
This season the 6'5" 205 pound junior guard/forward has absolutely busted loose. He is currently ripping the twines at 24.8 points per game. He is one of the State's top guns, and ranks 2nd in the Kingco Conference in scoring behind fellow junior sensation Zach LaVine of Bothell (26.4).
The nifty swingman is also adding 7 rebounds and 3 assists a game for the Bulldogs.
What has been hard on Haymond and the Dogs is a whirl wind of transfers in the off season. Junior guard Will Dorsey transferred to Rainier Beach, while junior forward Deashon Hall moved to Texas.
Standout junior forward TreVaunte Williams from Foster has transferred into Garfield to give the Bulldogs a solid one-two punch for the next two seasons.
Tucker and his Garfield boys are sitting at 8-2 on the season and currently ranked 4th in the state 4A polls. The sweet shooting Haymond has started to get some serious looks from Colleges.
He has one offer on the table so far from Western Michigan. With his continued high rolling play this season and his skills with
the elite Seattle Rotary summer squad, his recruiting should really catch fire.
