Tyler Schofield Puts Olivet on the Map

OLIVET, MICH. - There is no doubt that Olivet High School senior Tyler Schofield had some unfinished business on the mat before graduating. Last wrestling season, he finished as the state runner-up in his weight class. Schofield refused to let that happen again. He had an overall season record of 57-0 this year while being in the 165 pound division.  


“My mindset was that I wanted to be a state champion. I knew what I had to do differently to come out on top this time,” said Schofield.  


His calm and collective approach during meets led him to become one of four state champions in the entire school history of wrestling. It has been 25 years since the last celebration.  


“His accomplishments have been great to our program and our community. It shows the kids that it can happen in Olivet. It doesn’t just happen at Davison or Dundee, it can happen here,” said head wrestling coach Louis Vasilion.  


Schofield will be attending Northern Illinois University for his college career, where the coaching staff has been impressed with Schofield’s fiery attitude since his junior year of high school.  


“We really feel like he’s got a good blue collar, hard working attitude and he loves the sport and we think he’s going to do really well in our program,” said Northern Illinois University coach Ryan Ludwig.  


Schofield’s love for wrestling is not going anywhere. He plans to continue his academic and athletic career at Northern Illinois University, where he will be studying business. He wishes to eventually become a real estate agent while also coaching on the side.
