Tyler was a talented multi-sport athlete at WHS. He played football, basketball, baseball, and ran track for 4 years at WHS. He continued on with his athletic career at NDSU with a full ride scholarship for football. He was a 4 year letter winner at NDSU. After his graduation from NDSU, he went on to a free-agent NFL tryout with the New Orleans Saints. Unfortunately, during the tryout he sustained a career-ending knee injury. He returned to Williston to work and volunteered at numerous camps helping young kids. Sadly, he died at the age of 28.
His family established this scholarship in his memory. They have asked that it be given to a current WHS student going on to NDSU to pursue their education.
Scholarship amount: $500
