Tyler Ferguson • Springboro High School Varsity Lacrosse, #48
Position: Attack, X • 5′ 10″, 145 pounds • ACT: 23 • GPA: 3.0
My name is Tyler Ferguson and I am currently a junior at Springboro High School. I have been playing the sport of lacrosse for over eight years and truly love everything about the game. In that time, I have learned a great deal from the many coaches I have had, as well as the exceptional team I am blessed to have grown up playing with.
My sophomore season (Junior Varsity), I was voted captain. We went 12-1, with our our only loss against Mason (3-2). At season’s end I was voted Offensive Player of the Year, with 32 goals and 41 assists.
This season, as a junior, I am on the Varsity Team and have a challenging schedule playing some talented teams including Mariemont, Mason, Dublin Jerome, Dublin Scioto, Carmel and others. I am excited to be learning from our new, experienced coach Stefan Schroder – who was an All-American at Ohio State and played with the Ohio Machine.
I am currently 5’10” and weigh about 145 pounds. Every day I continue to work hard at improving my stick skills and lacrosse IQ. My goal is to someday play beyond high school, and help a college program in whatever way I can. Of course, I realize that in order to reach that goal, I will have to not only keep improving my skills as a player, but also take care of business in the classroom. You cannot become a student athlete without being a “student” first. My parents drive me to do the best I can in school, making sure I know that my grades are the most important thing for me to get ahead in life.
Over the years I have participated in summer travel leagues, winter & fall indoor leagues, box and even have played box lacrosse here in Springboro. Playing against elite competition will definitely help me to keep growing as a player. Through my summer lacrosse experience with the Cincinnati Royals Elite and Buckeye Elite teams, I got to experience first-hand what it takes to play at the next level. It was exciting to discover that I could definitely compete and contribute with these national players – proving to myself that playing in college is more than just a dream.
In my off time, I work out with professional sports performance trainers to better my abilities. But away from the field, I also like to fish, golf and draw. Art is something I enjoy a great deal and would like to incorporate that into my college curriculum. A possible career in graphic design or studio design would interest me. Other hobbies include playing video games, cooking and playing basketball. Lacrosse is my first love though, and I will continue getting as much experience as I can in order to reach my goals.
