What will you miss most about being a Student-Athlete at OFHS? 

Playing with my friends I’ve made since I moved here, and playing in front of my family, friends, and the rest of the community.

What is the best experience you had as a Student-Athlete at OFHS?

Beating Amherst at their own field to win the SWC in my junior year.

What is your favorite game, meet, or match you were involved in and why at OFHS?

Playing Amherst in the District Semi-Final. Although we didn’t win, it was a great game and every play mattered.

Would you like to thank or recognize anyone who has assisted you along the way?

I would like to thank Coach Todd Urban and Coach Trevor Urban for their guidance since 8th grade, as well as the rest of the coaches I had throughout high school. I’d also like to thank all of the coaches of other sports at Olmsted Falls for pushing me to be the best player and teammate I could be in the weight room.

Head Coach Todd Urban’s Comments:

I had the pleasure to coach Tyler as a youth player, and then as a Varsity player. He has a great work ethic, positive personality and has been an amazing teammate. Coaching Tyler has been a pleasure, and John Carroll will be getting a tremendous teammate.

Congratulations Tyler and Best of Luck to you!
