Woodford County High School senior Tylan Tucker signed his letter of intent to attend and wrestle for the University of Indianapolis on Monday, May 14.

Tucker won the KHSAA State Wrestling Championship in the 126-pound weight class in February. He won a 6-4 decision over Union County's Sam Bacon in the final to finish his senior season with a 45-4 record.

“Tylan is a very driven young man,” said WCHS Coach Rusty Parks. “He's a quiet and humble kid but when that whistle blows, it's like someone released a beast. He wants to beat you and he has the skill to do so. He's an exceptional kid and he has a very bright future ahead of him and we all look forward to watching his next chapter unfold.”

Choosing a career path was the biggest deciding factor into his signing with the Greyhounds, according to Tucker. “I want to study computer science and engineering and they have those programs,” he said.

Life in the wrestling WCHS wrestling room has groomed Tucker for the grind ahead of wrestling at the collegiate level and the challenges that he will face, he said. “I want to prove that I belong in the top tier of guys on the mat. We learn to be leaders in our wrestling room and I feel like I will leave here ready to face any challenege that comes my way, said Tucker. ”
