Men

Tyler Damazo - Men's Basketball
Junior - Forward/Guard
Beaver Falls, PA / Blackhawk

Tyler Damazo has been selected as the men’s student-athlete of the week. Damazo prompted Geneva's packed gym to an electrifying uproar with a play few people get to enjoy in a lifetime. With four seconds remaining on the clock, Geneva trailed 69-68 to all-time rival, Westminster. The Golden Tornadoes desperately needed a good basket from the free throw awarded to tie the game. The free throw shot nicked the left side of the rim taking an off bounce from the backboard crushing overtime hopes instantaneously. Shocking everyone in the stands, the descending basketball was met by Damazo for a swift rebound tip combo for a good basket and the ticket to overtime.
