It was held to honor Tyler Cop, a boy who passed away after graduating from Berlin High School back in 2015.
“I can’t ask for a better town and people in surrounding towns are seeing the outpouring we have had in this tragedy. We have come together as a group and make this happen no matter what. Me as his mom, keeps him alive in my sense,” explained Tyler’s mom, Robyn.
The three on three tournament took place at the basketball courts at Berlin High School.
The tournament benefits the Tyler Cop Foundation.
