Recruit Profile
Strong, Fast, Elite defensmen with Great on ball skills along with excellent transition play. Coachable and leader among peers. Multi-Sport athlete playing Inside Linebacker, Starting as Junior.

I am Tyler Burton, a Defenseman out of Chanhassen Highschool in Minnesota. I began playing lacrosse at seven and have been playing Defense my entire life. As a Freshman at Chanhassen High School, my team and I were the first team in school history to make it past our Section into our first State Playoff Birth. In the Final Season rankings, we were ranked #2 overall out of the entire State. As a Sophomore at Chanhassen Highschool, I took on a new role this year. I earned the nickname "Swiss Army Knife" because I was all over the field, playing different positions. I played Defensive Midfield, Offensive Midfield, LSM, and Close Defense. I took on this role due to many injuries within our roster. I am a very versatile player, so stepping into this position worked well. We continued to make it out of our Section for the second time in school history and finished 5th place in the State. As for Club Teams, I am playing at an extremely high level. I currently play for 2 top 40 teams in the Nation, which are True Minnesota AAA and True National Green. Both teams had an incredibly successful summer in 2021, and we are expecting an even bigger one this upcoming 2022 summer. As for academics, I hold myself to a very high standard. I took AP US History and Excelled English Class while maintaining a Cumulative, Unweighted GPA of 3.82 throughout my Freshman and Sophomore year. Upholding this GPA allowed me to be on the High Honor Roll my Freshman and Sophomore years.

I have had the honor of competing and training with Tyler Burton for the last four years. Ty is a pure lacrosse player, an elite level athlete, and a national level defender at close defense LSM and short stick for the 2024 graduating class. Ty has been a tremendous asset on the field on the sideline in practice and especially with his intangible leadership qualities in the locker room. As a Junior, Ty started at linebacker for his high school football team. When the whistle blows Ty's athletic ability is paramount. On our True MM 24 AAA Team, Tyler is a premier heartbeat for our game plan and execution. A lockdown defender with take away ability, and comprehensive understanding of team concepts at several levels on the defensive half. Tyler's play and athleticism is explosive between the box lines on both the clear and the ride. A burst of speed, great field vision and awareness. Prowess for contact with a motor that drives through impact and linebacker eyes that remain up and on the next play. Ty is great in the classroom and an upstanding young man. I am proud to endorse Tyler Burton, knowing he is poised for success.
