Tyler Bueckert has played in back-to-back title games with the Steinbach Sabres. Tyler and the Sabres lost the previous bowl game, but won the last title game against the Kelvin Clippers.The most memorable football experience of my life is winning the CTV bowl last year and competing for it the year before that,” mentioned Tyler.

Steinbach’s strong safety loves his position because it gives the freedom of being all over the field, either coming down hill or dropping back into coverage. Tyler added, “My ability to read plays gives me an edge on my opposition.”

Tyler models his game after the New York Giants’ Landon Collins because he loves his play style. “I feel like I’m very similar in size and speed playing a hybrid position stopping the run and dropping to coverage effectively,” said Tyler.

After he’s done in high school, Tyler would like to stay in Manitoba, but he has a couple of different options to choose from before he makes his decision.

Currently Tyler has gone on one unofficial visit and has talked to Simon Frasier University, and Minnesota State Moorhead.

Tyler hasn’t committed to any post-secondary programs. He’s looking to play for a U Sports school, or junior team. “I’m looking forward to see how I compete with the big boys,” replied Tyler.

When we asked Tyler how he will handle the next level, Tyler said that adjusting to something will always be difficult at first, but with his body and his mind he’ll be able to compete right away. Tyler mentioned, “I just want to work hard to get on the field and show what I can bring to the table when I’m at my best.”

This off-season, Tyler will utilize speed and weight training for the majority of his training.

The most influential people to Tyler have been his mom and coaches. “The most influential is my mom and my coaches, everything thing I’ve learnt to date is because of my coaches and having the opportunity to play the game is because of my mom,” said Tyler.

Football to Tyler has been all about teammates and making sure there a family.

Over the years of playing football, Tyler has learned to fight through adversity in life because the game is always a battle and so is life.

Besides playing football, Tyler is a multi-sport athlete that also enjoys playing high school hockey, as well as basketball.
