MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. – Montour’s 2011 football season was one for the record books, and while a number of skill players have just recently graduated one of the anchors of the defensive line is returning for his senior season.

Tyler Haddock the 5’11 270 pound defensive tackle verbally committed to Kent State back in April, but announced today that he will be staying in the Keystone State for his collegiate career and changed his commitment to Temple.

The list of schools interested in the soon to be senior is well over twenty according to Rivals, including the likes of Maryland, Michigan State, Penn State, Pitt, TCU, West Virginia, UCLA, and the list goes on, but none of which actually made offers. Kent State was the first to offer Haddock and he jumped on it, but once the Owls officially extended an invite yesterday it didn’t take long to make the switch.

“I don’t like Temple. I love Temple.” Haddock told Champs Monday. “Everything about it, the city, the coaches, the fans…I feel that I fit better being an Owl.”

Haddock who had 60 tackles and eight sacks in his junior season with Montour, was quick to point out it was a personal choice and nothing Kent State did or didn’t do.

“I would have been proud to go to Kent State but to the chance to play BCS football was extremely important to me.”

When asked if another big time program would make an offer would he open up the discussion again, Haddock said; “I’m sure I will get offers, but Temple is my future”

He also mentioned that playing at a venue like Lincoln Financial Field is something he is looking forward to.

“I love having the chance to play in front of thousands and thousands every game. I’m getting the chance to live my dream.”

In the near future Haddock is already gearing up for another season in Spartans black and gold, and he is focusing on winning another title.

“It’s good to get this out of the way so I can focus on playing football…we’ve reloaded and I feel our line is getting stronger…I want to repeat, I want to end my senior year on top.”
