Athlete of the Week – Will Tschetter, Stewartville Basketball

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

STEWARTVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) -- Stewartville's Will Tschetter is unguardable -- or, at least, that's what the stats say.

Through 10 games this season, the Stewartville junior leads the state in scoring at 35.6 points per game. He's shooting an absurd 68% on 2-point field goals, and 44% from behind the arc.

No one has figured out how to stop him.

"I don't know if it will stay like that or not, but I think as long as we keep winning games it'll be super fun," he said.

The 6-9 athlete is a joy to watch -- an ideal combination of a throwback power forward and the modern stretch-4. Tschetter is an aboslute magician in the paint, out-crafting his opponents week-in and week-out, boasting a polished arsenal of post moves. But he is also an adept 3-point shooter who can sink shots off both the dribble and catch-and-shoot situations.

"I think he's a gifted scorer," said Tigers Head Coach Adam Girtman. "He's one of the rare big kids, 6-8 or taller, that's not araid to play inside. A lot of times, they like to float on the perimeter and shoot 3's. Well, he can do that too, but his ability, his gift, is inside the paint."

Last week, Tschetter scored 45 points against Houston, and 39 points on just 23 shots against preseason Top Ten Team Jordan. His efficiency is ruthless. His mentality: on the attack.

"I think for me, every night, just wokring my absolute hardest. Just not letting anybody else out work me when I'm out there," he said.

The D1 prospect's motor is relentless. His head coach has noticed.

"I think there's three types of athletes: Athletes that don't have a lot of God-given ability that work real hard, there's ones with God-given ability that don't work very hard, and then there's the ones like Will that kind of have it both," said Girtman. "The height, the scoring touch, the drive to excel."

Will Tschetter of the Stewartville Tigers Boys Basketball team is this week's KTTC Athlete of the Week.
