People of Western - Tyler Schoh

Tyler Schoh is currently in the ASLA program at Western and is planning to transfer to Iowa State University next fall, where he knows he will declare a coaching minor. In addition to being a student, Tyler also plays on Western’s basketball team. The basketball team and Tyler’s family are his strongest support systems: “My family is very close and supportive…They have always pushed me and that has made me who I am today.” Tyler aspires to become a Division I basketball coach and take his team to the NCAA tournament. His family has been a huge influence on those future goals “…a family tradition would be sports…My mom always likes to tell the story about my first steps being on a basketball court.” Tyler sees his experience at Western as one that has “rightfully challenged” him, allowed him to meet great people, provided him with many different experiences, and prepared him to be successful at a four-year university.
