FSHS player of the week: Tyler Morgan

October 22, 2002


Positions: Offensive/defensive tackle

The game: Morgan is the epitome of the Firebirds' offensive line  a tad undersized, but overcomes that with his work ethic. He was second on the team in tackles during their 42-7 victory against Topeka High last Friday, mostly because of his off-season work. During the summer, he lifted weights every day the FSHS weight room was open, making him one of the strongest Firebirds on the team.

Comment: "He may not be the biggest guy on the field, but I guarantee he's one of the strongest," FSHS coach Bob Lisher said.

"He had a helluva game on the defensive line. He just did a great job fundamentally."
