Age:

18.

Parents’ names:

Gary and Sara Tyler.

Post-graduation plans:

I’m going to Colorado Mesa University on a football scholarship.

Dream job:

Sports psychologist.

Favorite class in high school:

Art 3D: 3.

Favorite club or extracurricular in high school:

Football!

Proudest accomplishment in high school:

Setting the foundation for a brand new school.

Best advice you’ve ever received:

To attend Young Life Summer Camp in Jasper, Georgia.

 

Biggest lesson learned in high school:

The way you perform on the field might make people like you or dislike you, but the way you impact lives outside of sports is what really matters and can make people love you.

Future goals:

To use my abilities to serve as many people as possible in the best way possible.

Favorite teacher:

Leigh Spence, my guidance counselor.

Person I admire and why:

I admire Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, because of his leadership. He’s not only an amazing athlete and leader for his team, but for that entire city. He’s constantly visiting children’s hospitals and is part of an investment group building an arena for an NBA team.

What you do for fun:

I enjoy playing sports during most of my free time, but I also take advantage of any chance I get to practice my barbecue skills.
