“I bring communication and leadership to the team, which is very important to have a successful season and doesn't get talked about as much as it should,” Blaine linebacker Tyler Ososki said to Northstar Football. “I have a good defensive instinct and make good reads. I always feel confident while bringing pressure and try my best to rush the QB and get sacks/ TFL's when my name is called on to do so. Another strength for me is the ability to get off linemen blocks and move guys/getting separation and then be able to make a play on the runner.”
The 2016 season for Blaine Football is one that Ososki isn't going to soon forget.
“Last season for us as a team was unforgettable,” Ososki explained. “The mindset coming into the summer before the season was that it was going to be different than years past. After having a losing record the year before we knew we needed to change our tone in the weightroom / film room and the football field and off the field as well. We needed to get our winning tradition back and we did just that. After a very successful regular season going 6-2 in a few very close games we flipped a switch going into the off season. We were an underdog in almost every game we played. So it felt really good to go out and keep winning big games against really good teams like Prior Lake and Minnetonka. This all leads up to the big semi-final game in U.S Bank Stadium against Totino-Grace. Where we played a hard fought game for all four quarters and came up a few yards short of winning the football game. That was definitely the most memorable highlight of the season though playing the first 6A football game in the new stadium in front of a great Blaine community.”
