Tyniek's Story

My passion is football. I've always had an eye for sports but especially football. Attending US Sports Contact football camp will allow me to be challenged in the sport and grow as a player. I hope to develop my football skills. Learning from experienced coaches will help me pinpoint what my strengths and areas of improvement are. I also look forward to meeting and playing against students from different backgrounds.

A Note from Mrs. Erhard-Joyce, Tyniek's Counselor

Tyniek is a good candidate for US Sports Contact Football Camp because he can offer a lot to the program and will benefit from it. He is an intelligent young man, who has the potential to achieve great success both on and off the field. I think that if he had the opportunity to be challenged in football he would be able to excel even more than he does already. Tyniek explores his passion by continuously pushing himself above and beyond expectations. I know he will do the same at US Sports Contact Football Camp.

I want to thank the wishbone organization and all my donors for giving me the opportunity to participate in the Loomis Chaffee Contact Football camp from July 15-18. I had so much fun and made many connections with the coaches and players. I improved my skills drastically, and made so many friends. I just want to thank wishbone for all their support. I hope to get the chance to participate in this program again next year.

I am so excited to have been chosen for this program and I can't thank the people enough who made this possible. I want to thank Wishbone and the people who donated for me to pursue my dreams as a football player. I will use this to the best of my ability and I hope to do this again next year. Thank You!!!!
