North Riverside resident and Nazareth High School senior Tyler Van Dahm recently signed a letter of intent to play football at Northwest Missouri State.

Van Dahm has been a tireless, dedicated football player for the past four years, according to head coach and Dean of Students Tim Racki.

“Whether it was at practice, in the weight room, or a simple walk-thru, Tyler always gave 100 percent,” he said. “He really defined the term ‘work ethic’ for our squad the past two years. He was a great example and tremendous captain to our younger players as well.”
