One of Colorado’s premier players in the 2019 class, Vista Ridge wing player Tristan Pratt is coming off a strong summer playing for The Force 16U squad.

Armed with a well-rounded skill set, Pratt brings good size and athleticism to the court. He is a versatile defender, a solid rebounder and has the ability to handle the ball and create shots.

“I would say I am an all around player with a lot of skill and potential but I also have a lot to work on this year,” he said. “My summer experience was one to remember because I got to play a lot of good teams and grow with experience and more knowledge of the game. I think it helped me get ready for this season.”

Pratt says expectations are high this season for his Vista Ridge squad which returns several talented players from a squad that went 19-7 last season.

“This season should be a great one we have a lot of potential and growth from last year and I expect the best that can come to a team — a championship. We're excited,” Pratt said. “Honestly I look forward to playing every team but the one I'm most excited for is Lewis Palmer. That should be a good game.”

A fan of the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry, Pratt says his grandfather has had the biggest influence on his basketball career to date.  “He has put a lot of time and effort in to me and I would hate to let him down,” Pratt said. “I always try to play my best.”

Pratt has drawn some interest from various colleges and hopes to take some unofficial visits soon, but does not currently hold any offers.

Pratt played with the Colorado based The Force program during the grassroots travel season.
