Athlete of the Week: Tully's Jason Phelps

TULLY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Winning is all our latest Athlete of the Week, Jason Phelps, has done this year, helping Tully to a spot in the Section III Class C championship game this weekend.

“Often times when I am stressed, I can come out here and everything just kind of goes away.  I’ve had a 45 point game where coach knew I had that look in my eye. I was a little frustrated that day, something was a little off. I kind of just had to let it go out there. It’s defiantly a sanctuary for me,” Phelps said.

He’s been deadly this season, averaging nearly 23 points and eight rebounds a game for the 20 and two Black Knights.

“He is the heart and soul of the team. He just loves being in the gym. If he is not here, he has a court at his house, he is there. He is at our town court. He is all over. He has been everything we have expected and more this year,” said coach Ryan Dando.

Earlier this year Jason Phelps joined the 1,000 point club.  His goal now is to help Tully win their first Section III Boys Basketball Championship since 2010.

“It would mean a lot. We have had a lot of success with winter sports over the years. It has been a while since we won one in basketball. I think it is time we win one again,” Phelps said.
