What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

I would probably say while being a kid I was the middle child so my big brothers played a big role into playing football, and just going to there games. I would say that’s what really pushed me to be a football player. Here today.

What is your favorite route and why?

For the type of wideout I am I like to get down field quick so I can get my oline off the field so I would have to say the first one is a fade, and my second would probably be a slant because I mean it’s more opportunity to show what type of player you are since a child I was always told if you can take a slant to the house you can really play some ball.

If there was a billboard with 5 of your traits what traits would be up there?

Loyalty, players coach, development, honest and go getter mindset.

What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

The type of energy I have on the field is I feel like I’m the guy that’s going to get a team wild up off the jump love to make the big plays and make whoever is guarding me look silly, I bring the same energy to practice I just wanna go out and ball and see what I can make happen for my teammates/brothers.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

I would say Deebo Samuel, why because I would love to pick his game apart and see what he would say what he would do in the moment and just talk about football and life with him and his path to greatness.

What are you looking forward to in your upcoming season?

This upcoming season, build off of last season and really try and make an All-American and the first game and just show everyone what type of ball player I am to get to the next step of my life.

What should we know about Tyler Ball the person?

Tyler Ball is a Kid from St.Louis who loves the game and will do anything to show his talent at the next level his drive for the game is ridiculous all he wants to do is to make his family proud. And put on for the #314. And wherever he lands it won’t be a mistake.

What sets you apart from other wide receivers?

I think what sets me apart from others is no matter where the ball is I gotta make a play , Im a playmaker I feel like I can get open as fast as possible for my quarterback I’ll do anything to win with my team, but most importantly if the ball is in the air there is no 50/50 ball it’s a 90/10 ball it’s coming down with me.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

In my book challenges are nothing but obstacle courses you have to find a way to get around it talking about it is one thing but getting it done is another thing, so no matter what the challenge is I plan on getting it done and getting though it.

What would a team get in a player like you?

A dawg, leader, and someone who’s going to give their all at all times no matter what.

What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?

I feel like someone who can listen and take notes from others and really get a feel and just be coachable and work on your craft.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

I would probably saying playing Madonna and being down in the 3rd quarter my quarterback made a audible making it a slant took it to the crib for a touchdown and then going back out on special teams and taking a 95 yard kick return to the house to go up and win the game finishing the game with 7 receptions 102 yards and 2 touchdowns.
