After four days of fall practice, the plan to use Tyler exclusively as a defensive midfielder was discarded.  Why?  He kept making great feeds during drills demonstrating a vision we had not anticipated.  Anticipate is what he does well, seeing plays and openings develop.  A lower leg injury this fall has limited his training with the team, but Tyler is determined to be back to 100% by the opening game at Quinnipiac.  Tyler will see most of his playing time this spring as an offensive midfielder, taking advantage of his significant speed and vision to create good opportunities and shots…Secondary School Background:  A graduate of Coppell High School where he lettered in lacrosse (4), football (4) and track (2)…Started every game during his four-year high lacrosse school career…Three- year captain (2009, 2010, 2011);  2008-All District… 2009- All State,  District Tournament Offensive MVP, State Champions Division II…2010 -  All State, State Tournament Offensive MVP, State Champions Division II…2011 - All-American, State Championship Tournament MVP, State Champions Division I.  Football: 3 year letterman; 11th- All District and Leading Receiver in 6-5A; 12th-First Team All State, First Team All DFW, All District leading receiver 7-5A, Set single season/career receive records at CHS – 145 receptions 1857 yards 23 touchdowns…Personal:  The son of Brad and Kelli Landis of Coppell…Enjoys music… Concentrating in Business/Economics.
