The Beaver State Podcast Episode 51: After football with Thomas Tyner

April 8, 2021

Thomas Tyner is one of the few to play elite football at Oregon's two most high-profile college programs, spending three years with the Oregon Ducks before medically retiring and then coming back for a final season with the Oregon State Beavers. A powerful running back, he was highly recruited out of Aloha high school but found college football to be a busy, noisy world, so he would often retreat to the nearby lakes and hiking trails to clear his head. After football, hunting, fishing and wildlife photography became his enduring passions, and now he's hoping to bring more people of color into the outdoor world he loves.
