If there is one glaring characteristic of Hyland it would be his unmatched drive to be the best. In the offseason he pops out of bed at the wee hour of 5 a.m., perhaps tripping over the morning paper on his way to meet Cheverus assistant coach Dan Costigan for the first of what could end up being four sessions in the gym. His goal, 700 makes each day, takes a significant amount of time to accomplish. He works on his handle, his jay, and adds 40 minutes of conditioning without a basketball to the mix. Hyland slips away during study hall to shoot some more, heads to the South Portland Rec Center after school for a few hours to hone his skills, then returns after dinner for another few hours of work. He’s getting bigger, stronger, and working on just his 17th year, there is no reason to think he won’t grow another few inches, add a few more pounds to his sturdy 190.
