Tyrese had always dreamt of playing for the ‘National Football League’ (NFL). Thus, before he ventured into the under-18 rugby team, Tyrese moved to the US to make a career in ‘NFL’ and successfully secured a place on the ‘Coastal Carolina University‘ team, as a running back.A prolific sprinter, Tyrese has been the third-fastest player of his age at the under-17 level in the country. Tyrese has now resumed his rugby career and has been signed under the ‘Bristol Bears.’

At the age of 16, Tyrese recorded a win at the 60m ‘National Indoor Finals.’ He finished in just 6.89 seconds, representing the ‘Croydon Harriers‘ (an athletic club based in Croydon, England). He also grabbed the third position in all of England in the under-17 100m sprint, which he finished in a record time of 10.73 seconds, to qualify for the ‘Great Britain Juniors.’ He is also a proficient long jumper. Tyrese’s compact physical frame (5 feet 10 inches, 194 pounds) not only helped him excel in sprinting but also earned him the running back position in his football team, something he had always dreamt of achieving.
