Tayton has flourished as a two star athlete, playing as the schools QB for the football team in the Fall as well as leading the basketball team on the court during the Winter months. While Schuster has excelled at both sports, his coach, Dan Dyer, said his knowledge of the game is just as great as his physical presence. "What makes Tayton really special is just his overall knowledge of the game, not just his physical tools which are really nice too, but just understanding where everyone should be on the court and what they're doing", said Dyer.
Described as someone who is friends with everyone at school and nice to anyone he crosses paths with, his personality off the court leads to strong leadership on the court and someone that the players look to for guidance.
