Tyner a perfect fit for Ducks
September, 20, 2012

ALOHA, Ore. -- Oregon has made a habit of signing small, dynamic running backs who fit its high-octane system. With 2013 running back Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha), the Ducks will have another back with the skill set and talent they're used to, only in a bigger package.
The 6-foot, 215-pound four-star will bring everything the Ducks desire in a back. While the No. 11 running back in the ESPN 150 has the ability to run over a defender should one happen to be in his way, he is best known for his speed. On the track, Tyner has participated in the Junior Olympics and set the Oregon state record in the 100 meters with a 10.35 as a sophomore.
