Tyler Boyd, a center midfielder, recently signed a letter of intent to play soccer at Tennessee Wesleyan College. Tyler is a senior at East Ridge High School. Boyd led his high school with nine assists last season.
East Ridge coach Jeremy McIntyre said, "He has a very good field sense and can find the open man. He also is a very good defender and plugs up the middle. Tyler is not only a great player but also an outstanding person. He's a hard worker on and off the field." (From the Chattanooga Times Free Press, January 24, 2009.)
