Tyler has lived in the Cabarrus County/Mecklenburg County area throughout his life and his passion for sports began at a very young age. After finishing up his high school career at Cramerton Christian where he earned All-Conference and All-State Honors,(Averaging nearly 30 ppg and 13 rpg) Centers was able to continue his basketball career at Belmont Abbey College (NCAA Division II) in Belmont, NC. Following his career at Belmont Abbey, Centers then went on to pursue his goal of working within the Sports Management field. 
Having worked within the sports world for several years, Centers has gained great insight & knowledge regarding youth athletics and has been able to work alongside directors of some of the largest basketball events in the country. These relationships have a given him a greater understanding and appreciation for what it takes to help players succeed both on and off the court.

Coach Tyler has worked with athletes of all ages and skill levels and truly enjoys seeing the process of development - "It's great to see the hard-work pay off for athletes when they come in and give 110% and have a great attitude - it makes it worth it". At 6'8, Centers is often asked to train post players, however- he has worked with players who play all 5 positions. If interested in training with Coach Tyler, see his contact information below:
