I was fortunate enough to play with Tyler last season in Frankfurt, and I can say first hand that he is one of the hardest working guys on and off the field! He plays every snap with intensity, but Football doesn't define him! Read more to learn about Tyler's off the field business adventures!

I Attended Augsburg College, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management with minors in International Business and MIS.
After a highlighted career at Augsburg College, I came to the realization that I had the ability to play football for a living. It has been a blessing, and a great opportunity for me to be able to play football and experience Europe at the same time. I have worked very hard to be in the position that I am today. And I am thankful to be able to say that I love my job.
Football is a huge part of my life, but I have always had the mind of an entrepreneur. I excelled in all of my business courses in college because it is a true interest of mine. I credit my well- rounded education to my advanced knowledge of business concepts. My advice to any student would be to study something you’re interested in!
In December 2013, I along with my business partner started an organization/business called TOTALLY COMMITTED. We are an inspirational/motivational company that encourages everyone to follow their dreams. We want to spread the word that you can achieve anything you want with dedication, and preparation. We lead by example, and want to portray total commitment and positivity in everything that we do. We are, “Chasing dreams with innovative minds.”
