Defensive Line Coach Pete Kwiatkowski was Horn's primary recruiter. "I went to the football camp this past summer and learned a ton in one week from Coach K," he stated. "He and Coach Pete see a lot of potential in me because I play with a motor. That's what they look for in their players."
Horn will grayshirt and join the team just in time for spring practice in 2011. Grayshirting has benefited many throughout the Bronco football program and Tyler is excited about the opportunity. "I'm going to grayshirt," he said. "I really want to work on getting bigger, stronger, and faster. I just want to do everything I can do to compete better."
Last season, Tyler and his teammates at Mountain View came up just short in their quest for a state championship. Mountain View lost to Capital in the semifinals, but they still put together a really solid season. "I think we got fourth in the state," he said. "I had 14 sacks and 50 tackles. I also had like 4 fumble recoveries," Horn added. The future Bronco received First Team All-State honors and Defensive Player of the Year for his outstanding work on the gridiron. "I got First Team All-State and Defensive Player of the Year. It's kind of an honor since there are so many good players. I felt I deserved it and worked hard for it."
Bronco fans can expect Horn to give 100% on each and every play. "I just like to play with a motor," he stated. "I'm pretty versatile and can stop the run. I compare myself to (current Bronco) Ryan Winterswyk."
