BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - In Bossier basketball is like a right a passage. Bossier is a school rich in history and known for consistent success year in and year out.
The current and former students have a saying, "Ain't nothing bigger than the B."
The gym is filled with basketball players from all over on Sunday nights. That's where we find Tyron McCoy and his uncle Devonte Hall. Tyron grew up watching his Uncle Devonte shine on the biggest stage and yearned for an opportunity to be there.
"Devonte's sophomore year, I can't remember his name but there was a guard #3 and they were going back and forth. People were running on the court and it was the hypest game I ever seen. I was like this is like a finals game in the NBA or somethingg. I said this is going to be a great opportunity for me to play here," said Tyron McCoy.
Now that he's here he's been relishing in the moment and soaking up every minute and has become a huge part of the teams recent success.
"My ninth grade year we were playing parkway and I got a steal and coach always said I couldn't dunk. I wanted to prove him wrong so I put a man in the rim and that's when I knew that I could be somethin."
Ty has a work ethic unlike most 17 year old, it's all or nothing attitude every time he takes the floor. He has a different love for life now. He's dreams of winning a state championship with Bossier were cut short this season.
