Tyus Battle becomes leader for Gill St. Bernard’s — Cuse Clicks

Tyus Battle knew that things would be a lot different for him going into his sophomore season at Gill St. Bernard’s. Three starters from last year’s team graduated and are now playing at Division 1 programs. Not only must he be the primary scorer for the Somerset County squad, he’s also stepped into a leadership role. “I take a big leadership role that Jaren (Sina) had last year,” Battle said. “It’s been going well. Just motivating my guys. A lot of them haven’t played a lot of varsity minutes yet, so I’ve just got to keep motivating them to keep shooting the ball even if it’s not falling. Eventually it’s going to fall.”
