At eight years old, Tyson Spence began his career with St.James Rods of the Manitoba Minor Football League (MMFL). After playing for the Rods for two years, he moved on to the MMFL’s Crescentwood Grizzlies.

Last season, he was a member of the junior varsity Grant Park Pirates of the Winnipeg High School Football League (WHSFL). For the upcoming year, Tyson is unsure whether he will play at the ‘AAA’ or junior varsity level.

However, one thing did stand out as a highlight and it wasn’t an accomplishment.

“The highlight of last season was probably being with my team, just because they are a great group of guys, never putting anyone down just there to play some football,” says Tyson.

Tyson looks up to his family in life and in football.  In life, Tyson says his mom makes him want to do better and make her proud. In football, Tyson looks up to his dad.

“He pushes me so hard,” adds the Pirates standout.

For the upcoming season, Tyson would like to improve his speed.

“If I’m going to play ‘AAA’, I need to be able to snap flat and cause the running back to cut back in side,” says the lineman.

Tyson trains six times a week. He trains at 6:00 AM on weekdays and on Sunday’s he swims around 11:00AM.

A personal goal is to go as far as he can in the sport.

Currently, he is open to all considerations.
