Tell me about your time as a Trojan athlete. What are some of the highlights? 

Two recent highlights I am proud of is last year’s team winning 30 games in our first season in the Ohio Valley Conference and sharing the conference’s batting average crown with two teammates (Nico Baumbach and Luke Pectol). It was one of the few times the Trojans have won at least 30 games in a season, and I am proud to say that I was a part of that team.

Tell me about either a favorite experience or memory at UA Little Rock, or a favorite course you took. 

Tyler’s favorite memory during his Little Rock playing career so far has been when the team came back from five runs down in the bottom of the ninth inning to sweep Sun Belt Conference foe, South Alabama.
