Throwbacks "Old School" Scholarship

The "Old School" Scholarship is given annually to a player in the Gem City Throwbacks organization that carries himself with high integrity, has a great attitude and demonstrates an excellent work ethic.


Congratulations to Tyler Grimes on being the recipient of the 2017 Throwbacks Old School Scholarship Award! Tyler graduated from Miamisburg HS this past spring and is going on to Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, KY where he will play both Baseball and Football. Quite an accomplishment!  

 
Tyler has been with the Throwbacks the past 2 seasons and has shown a strong desire to play in college along with being a leader on his team.  This past season, with the 18U Team under Coach Tony Quatman, Tyler was named Captain by his teammates and coaches.  I have had the pleasure to work with Tyler right away when joining the Throwbacks a couple years ago to help him achieve his desire to play in college.  Tyler worked extremely hard at it, following the Recruiting Program we teach and proactively self marketing himself.   Tyler is also a standout in the classroom with a high school GPA of 3.23.
