Chandler Tuten: 1000 Point Club
Chandler Tuten recently became the third player in Tuscarora High School history to score 1,000 career points! Fun fact: Evolution has trained 2 of those 3 players. Chandler started training with Evolution in the 6th grade and was one of our very first clients from Loudoun County. Since there was no Ashburn facility at the time, he trained with us at a gym we rented in Leesburg. At first, Chandler had a reputation as more of a jokester, but that changed pretty quickly. Alex Harris, President of Evolution, told me that “Chandler didn’t take his training too serious in the beginning, he was a typical goofy kid, but once it clicked for him and he started taking things more serious it changed everything and transformed his game. He’s been one of the hardest workers Evolution has seen over the past 6 years”.
All of his hard work has paid dividends in his high school career. As a Freshman, Chandler was a starter and a leading scorer on the JV team at Tuscarora, and he has been a leading scorer of the varsity team since sophomore year. “I’m really happy for all of the success Chandler has had over the past few years especially his 1000-point achievement. Over the years I’ve seen his work ethic, and no one deserves it more than him. I know he’s going to have a bright future on the court and beyond” said Alex Harris. Chandler plans and hopes to play college basketball after he graduates from Tuscarora this year, and we are extremely excited to see where his path leads him.
