I played with Tyler in 2008 and 2009. He pitched some really important innings for us in 2009 and, subsequently, was a major part of our Omaha-reaching team. He is a great leader, setting an example to be followed by his teammates. ‘Hoo knows, by the time this season is over, he may have been a central contributor for the 2011 national champions… Statistically, he currently has a 2.85 ERA and is 5-0 while striking out more than a batter an inning.
Regarding how great Tyler is off the field, I could easily fill a 500 word post. I’ll save your eyes and just ask you to take me for my word. He is one of those people who passionately cares for anyone whom he meets. He carries his zest for life into the numerous leadership positions which he holds within student groups. Straight up, he’s awesome.
Oh yeah, and he gets good grades as a Biology major.
