D6 Athlete of the Week Logo

"Tyler was nominated this week as the D6 Athlete of the Week because he has separated himself from many of our other fantastic student athletes with the way he attacks getting better. He was a beginning pole vaulter a few years ago, and he's now broken the school pole vault record on two occasions. I'm very excited to see what he can do, and how high he can get by the end of the season." - Jeff Collins, Athletic Director
