Football, Defensive Tackle
L.C. Bird High School
Senior at Shepherd University
The 6-3 290 pound defensive lineman has made waves since attending Shepherd and has been a two-year starter on a defensive line that anchors the best run defense in D-2 college football for the past three seasons. NFL scouts have taken notice as ten teams, including the Dolphins, Packers and Patriots have scouted and interviewed the senior. Tyler hopes to get on the draft radar, but will more likely earn an invite to training camp next year as an undrafted free agent. In 2013, he’s clogged the middle, garnering five tackles and two sacks.

While participating in just two events as a freshman, Conway has made strides and will look to further improve her 2013 performance as Lincoln Memorial will travel to play in the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate tournament October 7-8 at the Sea Trail Golf Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
