Tyler Calhoun, talented Bethel-Tate athlete, has committed to continue his outstanding sports career and education at the College of Mount Saint Joseph.

Calhoun will play football and his major course of study will be nursing.

“I chose Mount Saint Joe because it has a good nursing program and good football program and its close to home,” he said.

At Bethel-Tate he was a four-year letterman in football and also lettered in track and field and competed in wrestling. He was a Southern Buckeye Conference (SBC) American Division all-star on the gridiron (defensive end) and track.

In addition to starring in sports he was a member of the high school's homecoming and prom courts.

"The Lockland football game my junior year went three overtimes. Even though we lost it was a great game," said Calhoun. "The senior night (football) game against Williamsburg I deflected a pass and had a number of sacks and tackles for losses. . . It was a great honor playing in the East-West All-Star Football Game."

Family and friends have been most important to Calhoun.

"I looked up to my brother (Bryan, (an SBC football and wrestling all-star) and I tried

to work like him and be like him. . . my dad and mom (Dennis and Debbie) always supported me in everything. . . my grandparents (Fairly and Elsie Calhoun) were always supportive and I learned my work ethic from them. . . my friends were always there for me and being with them meant a lot."
