Tres Hamlett – Davenport

Davenport junior Tres Hamlett has been hooked on the game of basketball ever since some family members convinced him to join a team. From then on he has always played power forward or center. Currently, the VYPE Top 100 selectee is enjoying winning some games with the Bulldogs as they garner the unwavering support of their community.

“Davenport is a small town of around 800 people,” he said. “You wouldn’t believe that on game night, this small community fills the seats of the gym. The support they give to each one of us on and off the court is an amazing feeling.”

Hamlett also appreciates the relationships he has built over the years of playing his sport. From his own teammates to some friendly rivalries, he enjoys being around his fellow athletes.

“Basketball has taught me about friendship,” he said. “I have been playing with some of my teammates since the fourth grade. I have also had the chance to know a lot of players from other teams just as long. I have had opportunities to travel to other states playing the game I love and meeting new people along the way.”

When on the court Hamlett aims to be an encouraging teammate and a positive influence for those around him.

“I try to be a positive player and lift my teammates up when the game or shots are not going our way,” he said. “I give it my all on the court and know my teammates do the same.”

Hamlett says there have been many people in his life that have helped get him to where he is today. His coach, Kenny McGough, is one who stands out.

“Coach Kenny McGough has been my coach since the seventh grade,” Hamlett said. “He continues to push me on and off the court to be the best I can be. I can never thank him enough for all he has done for me.”

Outside of basketball Hamlett is a member of the Davenport FFA, holding the office of Sentinel for the chapter. After high school he plans on attending college to learn about either sports medicine or agriculture.
