NASCAR drivers push their cars to go as fast as they can, requiring incredible vision and anticipation.  But inevitably crashes happen.  The #7 car for Brown Lacrosse is piloted by Tyler Landis, whom unfortunately hit a major bump in the road last year.  The injury Tyler sustained severely limited his speed and we were not able to see him go full throttle.  2013 is promising to be different, as he is bouncing back and proving that he can make plays.  Tyler has the dangerous combination of possessing both the burst to run past a defender and the ability to see openings in the defense and teammates stepping into good shooting spots.  It is this vision that separates him from most others, and Tyler will be asked to be the ignition switch for a significant amount of the 6v6 offense.  He also has grasped the team defensive and clearing schemes quickly, allowing him to be relied upon to wear multiple hats and possibly be incorporated into a two-way midfielder role…2012:  Played in games against Hartford, Princeton, Penn and Providence for the Bears…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.
