@MrSportsLeak: Could you introduce yourself and take us down your football journey? How did you end up in your current situation?
"My name is Tyler Basch. I just finished up the last season of college football with Missouri Western State University. I graduated with a degree in Economics. I started my football career with Wayne State College where I played my redshirt freshman year before transferring to Missouri Western and becoming the starting kicker. "
Who’s a current or former kicker you model your game after?
"I would say I model my game after Adam Vinatieri. The man is clutch when he is needed and is someone I strive to compete with."
What’s your longest field goal made in a game?
"My longest field goal I’ve made in a game was 58 yards. I made this in our bowl game my senior year, which tied Greg Zuerlein’s record at Missouri Western."
Do you think you could handle kickoffs for a team?
"I absolutely think I could handle kickoffs for a team."
Who are some of your mentors in life?
"I have many mentors in my life, stemming from football, business, and work. My head coach, Matt Williamson, is someone I know I can trust to keep me focused. I have my father who continues to keep me motivated and organized, and I have mentors I’ve met through business that have introduced me to all kinds of ways to grow as a person as well as an athlete."
What do you bring to a team on and off the field?
"What I bring to a team is someone that is focused, hardworking, and reliable. I will put in the work to ensure that when I hear the “field goal” call in a game, I give my team the ability to trust me on the field to do my job. Off the field, I am someone that people can trust to be a great representation of the organization I represent at all times."
