Synear Tryon is one of the best players from the Houston, Texas area in the Class of 2023.
The 5-foot-9, 130-pound Tryon, who attends Cedar Bayou Jr. School, is a dynamic player that works as a point guard who has played for Team Harden, Grindtime Elite and the Hawks organizations.
No matter the opponent, every game Tryon is determined to give it his all.
Tryon is going all out.
The motor is always at full throttle whenever Tryon steps between the lines.
“My mindset is to be the greatest point guard on the court. I want to dominate my one-on-one battle with the other point guard.” Tryon said. “I want the opponent to have to grind for everything they get while I’m out there.”
Tryon has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the hardwood. Tryon tells why he enjoys the game of basketball so much.
“I love the energy and the hype, most of all just being on the court having a good time and hooping,” Tryon said. “I just love being a part of a team that is like your family. I love being able to celebrate with my teammates after big wins.”
Tryon has learned many valuable lessons from playing basketball that he applies to his everyday life.
The main one is applying perspective to all situations.
“Playing basketball has taught me so much about life,” Tryon said. “It has taught me everything is not going to go your way but I just have to keep pushing. You have to grind through all the hard times to reach the goals you have for yourself.”
Tryon recalls his favorite basketball memory.
“My favorite memory of playing is when I hit the game-winning three. It’s my favorite memory because I helped my team out and we didn’t lose,” Tryon said. “It was an amazing feeling to come through for my team like that and I’ll never forget it.”
John Jones is Tryon’s coach.
Jones explains the best parts of Tryon’s game.
“Synsear’s ability to take and make shots makes him a duel offensive threat,” Jones said. “Synsear is learning to be a true point guard by knowing when to score and knowing when to facilitate.”
Tryon takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Tryon makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.
“It’s important for me to be a good teammate. I cheer my teammates on, no matter if they do good or bad,” Tryon said. “I tell my teammates to try hard and do your best. If you do that, you won’t have any regrets because you left it all on the court.”
Jones adds that Tryon is one of those consummate teammates that every squad needs to be successful.
“His leadership has gotten better,” Jones said. “He’s always uplifting his teammates when things aren’t looking good or if a teammate is in a funk. That attitude has a positive effect on his teammates.”
Tryon is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.
“My coaches have helped make me a better player and person,” Tryon said. “I’ve learned that even if things don’t go my way I still have to keep a good/healthy mindset and stay focused. I shouldn’t let things bother me.”
Jones is an advocate of Tryon’s capabilities.
“Championship game in Dallas for the Gauntlet Qualifier Synsear he had eight steals, hit a three with 20 seconds left in regulation, finished the game with 21 points and we won the championship,” Jones said.
In addition to making clutch plays, Tryon is developing a high level of basketball IQ as well.
Tryon is growing into excellent basketball awareness that puts him in position to thrive.
“Well at his age Synsear’s he has a lot of learning to do attain as far as basketball and the point guard position,” Jones said. “I will say once you show Synsear something, he processes it and execute it out on the floor.”
Tryon is on the grind to perfect and hone his craft in any way possible.
“His work ethic is good at his age. His father and brother ensures that,” Jones said. “He’s willing to put in the extra work to improve his game.”
Tryon patterns his mentality after this NBA champion point guard.
“I look up to Kyrie Irving because he’s a great player/ businessman and he’s overall just a phenomenal basketball player,” Tryon said. “I want to be like him on and off the court.”
Tryon is constantly striving for greatness in everything that he does.
“My goal is to succeed and be the best I can be. I want to be the best basketball player and person I can be,” Tryon said. “I want to make my family proud of me in everything that I do.”
Tryon explains his collegiate aspirations.
“My dream college is Alabama because they have a good education and a good sports program,” Tryon said. “It would be an honor to play for the Crimson Tide in the SEC.”
Tryon lists math as his favorite subject in school.
“My favorite subject is math because you know I have to be good with the money,” Tryon said. “Math is a subject that’s very important when you become an adult because you don’t want anyone to take advantage of you.”
Jones outlines the areas of improvement that will take Tryon to the next level.
“We’re looking to make even more improvements on the IQ side but mainly just making Synsear a better overall player, mentally first and foremost,” Jones said. “He’s still young so I know all of these improvements can and will be made.”
Jones believes the sky is the limit as long as Tryon continues to stay hungry.
“In my opinion, Synsear’s potential is high if he keeps a steady work ethic and remains focused,” Jones said. “I’m proud to play a role in his development and I’m excited for what the future holds for him. I can see great things down the road for this young man.”
