Shalom to You Too Alex Tyus
An article came across my email from Jacques Gliksberg, long time supporter of TGR. Great story about former Florida Gator Alex Tyus.
Tyus ended his college basketball career last year but unfortunately went undrafted. He has since decided to play in Israel for Maccabi Ashdod. Tyus, and his wife, converted to Judaism at the end of college and even held their draft party at Florida’s Hillel. Hillel must be doing something right with Tyus and Chicago Bear Gabe Carimi being so involved.
Another great story and talent headed to Israel. To read more about this incredible Jewish story click HERE.
Hope Tyus can get to the Association soon.
