Cullman Encore Athlete of the Month, Tyler Rice.

Congratulations to the Cullman Encore Athlete of the Month, Tyler Rice! Tyler is a Senior, multi-sport athlete at Cold Springs High School in Bremen, AL. He has played Baseball for 6 years, Basketball for 4 years, and Football for 2 years. You’ll find him wearing jersey numbers 17 and 11. Tyler came to us after he tore his right and left ACL in a spring game last year. He wasn’t able to play any football this past season; however, for his Football senior night game, they let him dress out and play for one snap. Then last  December, he got cleared to play baseball.

After Tyler graduates, he plans to attend Wallace State for 2 years and then transfer to UAB to become a nurse practitioner. We’re proud of you Tyler!
