COACH CORBIN QUOTE: Tyler’s defensive skill-set sets him a part from many. He has the unique ability to play the game with control and rhythm. He inserted himself as a starter (2014 CWS Finals) where the conditions were ‘hot’ and he responded in a championship way. His experience, leadership manner and daily preparation certainly have an affect on the young players that enter our program.
