A two-sport standout, St. Francis, Minn. native 2020 Wyatt Schroeder is coming off a standout offseason competing for 43 Hoops and is putting together a strong season on the football field and hopes that success will translate to the hardwood this winter.

At 6’5, 205-pounds, Schroeder brings a unique skill set to the court, scoring at all three levels by utilizing an unorthodox array of post moves and fakes, and also creates space on the floor with his outside shooting.  He combines athleticism, strength, and footwork to be a tough mismatch. He is able to use his length and athleticism to defend all five positions and has the ability to play above the rim and throw down highlight reel dunks.

This summer he played for 43 Hoops 15U squad, a team that was widely known for its willingness to share the ball and its ability to shoot from the outside.  “I became much better at passing, rebounding, defending. I continued improving my game on the perimeter throughout the summer,” Schroeder said.

This fall he is putting together a big season for St. Francis High School’s football team as a standout wide receiver, and this winter he hopes to repeat his success as an all-conference performer a year ago. He says he is looking forward to competing against 43 Hoops teammate Henry Abraham from Cambridge Isanti.  "Cambridge Isanti High School is my school's largest rival and the atmosphere is always fun,” Schroeder says.

A fan of Kobe Bryant, Schroeder says the biggest influence on his basketball career has been his older brother Dylan.  “He has dedicated hundreds of hours of his life to getting me in the gym and working me out,” Schroeder said. “I wouldn’t be the player I am today without him.”

Schroeder says he has not yet received much college interest, but says he hopes that will change with a big high school season.  “My goal is to play at the highest level of basketball my game can take me,” he says. “I am continuing to expand my game to the perimeter as well as becoming a more consistent shooter. I am always using the weight room to get stronger, faster, and more explosive.”
