Amelia’s Tyler Boston to play on Mt. St. Joe’s turf

Tyler Boston, Amelia High School football standout, has signed a collegiate letter-of-intent to continue his education and football career at the College of Mount Saint Joseph, Cincinnati. His major will be studying in the field of sports management.

Boston is another generation of athletic talent from this family. His father, Chuck, was a star at Batavia High School and his uncles, Bill and Jason, were standouts at Glen Este High School.

Tyler, 6-foot, 2-inches, 190-pounds, is a three-year letterman in football and also lettered in track and field. He played one season of basketball, too. The Fort Ancient Valley Conference Cardinal Division football all-star owns a school record with his 86-yard kickoff return that he made his senior year versus Wilmington High School on the Hurricanes’ turf. The run back broke a record established in 1964 by another Amelia football great, the late Mike Knox.

“Tyler is an excellent athlete. He led by example on and off the field and was a hard worker,” said Amelia head football coach Rob Kiefer.
