Tyler Greer’s gridiron career has consisted of several highlights.

He played for the Cumberland Panthers in the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), and at the junior varsity level was awarded Rookie of the Year.

Tyler also plays in the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) for the Orleans Bengals.

The defensive tackle also lends his talents to his high school team, the St. Peter Knights in the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSAA) in the fall, and was selected to play in the High School All-Star game this year.

“(The) highlight of last season was when I blocked a field goal and ran with the ball for about 10-15 yards with it,” said Tyler.















Moreover, to prepare for next season he is going to work on conditioning the most, as well as work towards getting stronger and faster every week.

He has also been training with Mike Donnelly for the past five months, who helps him out and makes him work hard.

This summer, he is lifting a lot in order to get his body prepared for the next level and has been participating in camps.

The Knight has been participating in American camps, and got invited to Morrisville University for a camp in New York, as well as some other interest from universities in the States.

If Tyler ends up in Canada for university, he favours his hometown school, Carleton, because he loves their football program.

“The recruitment process has been very positive and encouraging,” explained Tyler.

“When schools show interest it’s the best feeling, when you know you work hard and it pays off.”

His future plans are to get a good education and go into business, criminology, or journalism to have a backup in case football does not work out.

Carrying through with his process, he plans to get all the information and start picking his top three schools within the next couple of months.

“My mother and father are the most influential people because they push me to strive for high goals and to pursue my dreams,” commented Tyler.
