Tyler Thomas, affectionately known as “T.Y.”, has committed to Marian University to continue his football playing career. During his senior season, Thomas earned Honorable mention All-Area honors in both the Post-Tribune and the Times of Northwest Indiana. The senior led the 59ers in yards per catch (24.6) and was 2nd in receiving touchdowns (9). Coach Skinner had this to say about Thomas. “Tyler Thomas came to Andrean as an athlete with mostly untapped potential. Throughout his career here, he has worked tirelessly in football and track to refine his athletic abilities.” Skinner continued, “He leaves with an opportunity to play football at the collegiate level, and I couldn’t be happier for him. He has truly earned this opportunity.”
