Tyler Lee is a two-time Wetherington Chiropractic Clinic Athlete of the Week from Islands High School Soccer program. Lee was on the show on March 22, 2014 and had just scored his 62nd goal. I asked Tyler if he had a personal goal he said, “To score 100 goals in his high school career.”
Well a little more than a year later March 30, 2015 Tyler scored five goals against AE Beach High School to notch his 100th career goal. Since Lee’s unbelievable achievement, he has scored seven goals in the last four games to give him a career total of 107 goals. Lee still has three region playoff games to play as well as the GHSA state soccer playoffs to raise that total even higher.
Besides scoring goals to date, Tyler has 78 assists so we can say he also has the knack to see the open man in the game. “I get as much satisfaction when a teammate scores as well as when I do," said Tyler. “Tyler is a hard worker, and he is unselfish. It has always been team first. I have watched him grow over the last four seasons, and he is the best player I have ever coached,” said Head Soccer Coach Dante Casagrande of Islands High School. Tyler recently has committed to an athletic scholarship to continue his soccer career at the next level at Newberry College. Congratulations Tyler on being this week’s Wetherington Chiropractic Clinic Athlete of the Week.
