Career Game Highs
COACH CORBIN QUOTE - Tyler is mature beyond his years. He came to Vanderbilt and exemplified very good work habits from the start of school to right now. He is big, strong, powerful and will remind fans of former pitcher, Taylor Hill. Tyler has put himself in the fore-front of our pitching staff because of his fall and his continual improvement.
