Tyler began shooting at Sir Walter Gun Club in Creedmoor, North Carolina, in 2016 when he was just nine years old. In 2019 Tyler started working with Matt Suggs, his late coach and former CEO of USA Shooting.
Under Coach Suggs’ guidance, Tyler quickly advanced to compete at CMP National and USA Shooting matches. In the fall of 2021, Tyler also started working with Coach Lucas Kozeniesky and Team Winning Solutions (TWS) to further his skills in precision rifle.
With the help of Coach Suggs and TWS, Tyler was invited to compete in his first international competition at the 2022 World Championship in Cairo as the youngest competitor in Men’s 50m Rifle 3 Position, placing 5th in the men’s junior finals.
