.....was family, as his Coach /Mentor. We had a special relationship. He would call me Dad.
I want to take this time and share my mission which is to enable student/athletes. My involvement is to empower the life of a child to become a confident leader which leads them to a confident future. Tyler and my conversations would be more about sharing and me facilitating the conversation. He saw an older, wiser man who wanted to add value - rather than a critical, meddling, overreaching coach/mentor trying to change his beloved son. Those conversations I cherish and dearly miss.
In honor of Tyler's impact on Arizona High School/Men Rugby Club, East Valley Eagles has created the Tyler Scholarship Fund.
Any Eagles player's that go on to play and complete their freshman year academics and collegiate level rugby will receive sum funding.
