    Ty Brummer

    The 33rd Annual 8-Man All-Star Games will take place this Saturday at Trojan Field in Beloit.  Since Tuesday, 80 of the top 8-Man seniors have been working hard in preparation for the games on Saturday.  The 8-Man DI All-Star Game will get things started with kickoff at 10:00. The 8-Man DII All-Star Game follows at 1:30. Pregame coverage begins at 1:00 on KD Country 94 and the 8-Man All-Star Game Radio Network, which is also online at http://www.8manallstars.com.

    Tipton Catholic High School graduate Ty Brummer will represent the St. John’s/Tipton Blujays for the DII East squad.

    Brummer had a solid career with the Blujays, especially stepping up his game in his final two seasons.  This past season, as a senior, he ran for 915 yards and 16 TD and also had over 300 yards and a couple touchdowns receiving.  Brummer also became one of the top defenders in the state, as he led the team with 118 tackles.  As a junior, Brummer was second on the team with 98 tackles and he also ran for 857 yards and 13 scores and had 334 receiving yards.  He finished his Blujay career with 313 tackles including ten for loss.

    Brummer has worked hard throughout his career to earn his spot at the 8-Man All-Star Game, as he explains.

    Ty is planning a career in an ag related field and will head off to college to pursue that in the fall.
