Tyler looking to make it a package deal?

Casey Tyler is a 6-5, 265-pound tight end/defensive end for Edmonds (Wash.) Edmonds-Woodway, and Casey is having a great senior season so far. The Wesco 4A is looking to be a tough league this year, but E-W got a big boost with a win over Kamiak last Friday.

"Our defense really stepped it up," Tyler told Dawgman.com about his team's winning formula. "Our linebackers really did a great job and our D-line did a great job of stopping them at the point of attack."

Casey's teammate, Kyle Trew, is the focus of a lot of defenses on his own, but E-W was able to get him some much-needed rest against the Knights. "We really didn't need him too bad," Tyler said. "We were up 16-9 and his hamstring was bothering him a little bit. He wanted to stay off of it."

Tyler expressed some disappointment in not getting a chance to go up against Kamiak's heralded Derrick Bradley. Derrick suffered a deep ankle bruise on the opening kickoff. "I was looking forward to it all week, so it was a little disappointing," Casey said. "I was kind of bummed."

There are rumors swirling about that Tyler just might be playing with Bradley next year, as Derrick verbally committed to Washington Thursday afternoon. "No, not yet," he said. "I haven't committed anywhere yet. Don't get me wrong, Washington is still my first pick, but I'm still keeping my options open."

Part of Tyler's plan include some visits. "I'm going to go to Oregon and watch them play U-Dub," he said. "Kyle is going to go too."

Oregon and Washington are the two schools recruiting Tyler the hardest, and Washington is the only school that has offered him a scholarship. Casey has a pretty good idea when he'll pull the trigger. "It'll be after the season," he said.

Is it conceivable both Tyler and Trew end up committing to the same school? Casey thinks so.
