Tyler's parents are very happy about the decision. "They felt that Georgia Tech was the best place for me both from a academic standpoint and from the football viewpoint. A degree from Georgia Tech says it all."
The coaches on the Tech staff played a big role in Stargel's decision. "I mean Coach (Paul) Johnson is a winner and Coach (Al) Groh is a defensive genius. I know I will learn from one of the best defensive minds in football. When he told me I was the perfect fit for his 3-4 defense and that he had high hopes for me being a dominant force in the defense, I knew I was in good hands."
Tyler feels good now that he's made his decision. "I am going to a great school that has great academics and plays football in a great conference. I mean I will playing against teams like Miami, Virginia Tech, UNC, and other powers out of conference. It is the best of both worlds. I can't go wrong with this decision."
