Community remembers teammate, football enthusiast

Tyler Miller, 14, loved not only playing football, but coaching it as well.

BARKER —

“He was somebody that everyone liked and wanted to be around. And he always had a big smile on his face.”

Bruning said a moment of silence is planned prior to the start of both Barker/Roy-Hart's varsity and JV football games this weekend.

“He really was a very special young man,” Bruning said. “He was just one of those kids who was very liked by all his classmates. He was everyone's friend — someone who would go out of his way to make you happy or to get you pumped up.”

First year Barker/Roy-Hart JV football Nate Sutch said he coached Miller in football this year, but also coached him in football and wrestling when he was still in elementary school.

“He was a fun person to be around,” Sutch said. “He was just so energetic, always had a smile on his face and was always trying to make other people laugh. I asked him one day recently how everything was going and he told me how excited he was helping out his dad coach in Bar-Lyn. He was definitely positive about that and you could tell how much he loved doing it. We're all going to miss him.”
