A kiwi for the FRAPORT SKYLINERS - actress Tai Webster committed
The FRAPORT SKYLINERS have signed a contract with Tai Webster. The 22-year-old recently played at the University of Nebraska, where he spent three years with the former Frankfurter Shavon Shields. The New Zealander is awarded a contract for the 2017/18 season with an option for the 2018/19 season.
Tai Webster: "I really do not have any real expectations for my first season as a professional. It is my first season, the first opportunity to present myself as a professional. I just want to go out, work as hard as I can, and do everything Coach asks me to win. I have spoken with Shavon [Shields] before. He told me I would love it in Frankfurt. The team colleagues are all good guys, the coaching staff is extremely good and the entire workforce is very nice and works professionally. He said I could develop excellently. Of course I want to do this and help the team. My biggest strength is probably my pull to the basket. I like to attack the basket and score points against the bigger guys. "

Gordon Herbert: "Tai is a point guard, but he can also be used as a combo guard. He is very good at'Pick and Roll' and has the potential to be a very good defender. I know his college coach very well. He had already given me a lot of information and good things about Shavon Shields and now about Tai. Although Tai is still very young, he already has a lot of international experience. The situation reminds me a bit of Phil Scrubb, who also came very young to us and also had a lot of international experience with the Canadian national team. This is very rare and very valuable for an international rookie, a professional in the first year. "
