Combo guard Nicholas Boyd from Garnerville, New York, has a rich family history when it comes to the game of basketball. Boyd’s uncles are Fred Hill and Brian Hill; Fred Hill is an assistant coach at Seton Hall University and former head coach at Rutgers University. Brian Hill is currently an assistant coach for the Detroit Pistons whose coaching career spans over 40 years. Boyd is well aware of his family pedigree and is constantly working to become a better basketball player.
The 5’5” 14 year old is currently attending Don Bosco Prep and playing AAU ball for The Riverside Hawks (NY). Boyd is not as tall as some opposing guards, but he makes up for it with quickness and a diverse skill set.
“My biggest strengths are shooting and handling the ball. I also like to share the ball and get my teammates involved in the game,” said Boyd.
Boyd has been playing against some tough competition and shined during some recent notable tournaments. His best game came against the PSA Cardinals at the Hoop in the Sun Tournament where he dropped 18 points, including four 3-pointers.
The best players turn their weaknesses into strengths. Boyd would like to improve upon his defensive focus and driving ability. If he continues to work hard and improve his game, the future certainly looks bright for this 2019 prospect.
