Posted on September 8, 2016
Tyler Landrum, Senior at Northeast Jones High School, was selected as a South Central Sports Medicine Scholar Athlete. Tyler plays Football and Baseball for the Northeast Jones Tigers. After Tyler graduates from Northeast Jones in May, he plans to major in Electrical Engineering at Mississippi State University.
As an athlete Tyler finds motivation by playing together as a team. “I know that my teammates are depending on me, just like I am depending on them. We work well together as a team.” Tyler plans to work hard this season in football and baseball so that he may play to the best of his abilities.
Tyler was asked who has influenced his desire to excel on the playing field and classroom. He responded, “My dad is a big role model in my life. He is a good Christian man, and has taught me all I know about sports. I want to strive to have this same influence on younger athletes. Using the abilities God has given us will help us succeed in all we do.”
