Coach Corbin Quote: “Tyler is strong, fearless and competitive. He has worked through several hurdles in his young life that will only enhance his ability to succeed at this level. He is a survivor in every way. He saw a lot of time in a relief role as a freshman and we were happy with the way that he approached big moments. I like the way he attacks the strike zone. He has continued to grow personally and athletically, and he could find himself in a starter role at some point.”
