Michael Tyner, Hamilton Heights' senior, has signed a letter of intent to play football and run track at Trine University in Angola, Indiana this fall. Trine University is a member of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA). He is the son of Tony and Liz Tyner.

"I chose Trine University because it has a good engineering program with steadily improving football and track teams," shared Tyner, who plans to study mechanical engineering. "It is a smaller school which makes it easier to communicate with professors, fellow students and teammates. My goal is to pursue a career as an engineer after graduating from Trine."

Tyner, a multi-sport athlete, has been running track since he was in the sixth grade. He has also been kicking for football since his sophomore year. It has been his dream to earn an engineering degree and play a sport in college. "I run, lift, and kick every day in preparation for this year's track season and my collegiate debut at Trine," he noted. Tyner earned several recognitions and achievements during his participation as a member of the men's football, track, soccer and cross country teams including four varsity letters for track, received the Hoosier Conference Honorable Mention for Track, was a 4 x 8 team qualifier for regionals and indoor state his junior year, and received 5 scholarship offers for track.

Tyner, who enjoys attending youth groups at Life Church in Noblesville, running and hanging out with friends, is looking forward to success academically and athletically at Trine. "I plan on making many new friends and developing many new skills as I start the next chapter of my life," added Tyner.

Tyner said his parents have been a huge influence for him as a person. He also credits coaches Hippensteel, Jones and Trachtman for their support and encouragement in helping him to become a better runner. His kicking skills improved over the years thanks to his work with coaches Street, Kirschner and Jones. They all contributed toward helping me to achieve on and off the field and develop my skills to be competitive at the collegiate level."

"Michael's work ethic has allowed him to excel at track for Hamilton Heights," said Mike Hippensteel, Hamilton Heights head boys track coach. "He has made the most of his abilities the last three years. Michael is an inspiration to the rest of his team through his hard work."

Kurt Ogden, Hamilton Heights Athletic Director, said, "Michael is another Hamilton Heights athlete who has been a positive example of how an athlete should represent himself, our school and our community in and out of the classroom. He was a three-sport athlete who maintained a solid GPA and was a great role model for our younger athletes. We are proud of Michael and wish him well as he continues his athletic career at Trine University."
