COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University men’s volleyball program is hosting #SeniorWeek (March 23-29), spending a day celebrating each member of the seven-man senior class. The second-to-last day is all about Tyler Alter.
Arriving from Laguna Beach, Calif., four years ago, Alter steadily worked his way up the playing time ladder and had started 11 of 19 matches during the shortened 2020 season. For his career, Alter averaged over two points per set in amassing a total of 201.5 tallies (181 kills, 29 block assists, five aces and a solo stuff).
He added 111 digs in 41 total matches played.
Reese Devilbiss: “Tyler is one of the most free-spirited people that I’ve ever met. Even in the worst situations, he is enthusiastic and can elevate everyone’s mood both on and off the court. In the past four years that I have known him, we have created an innumerable amount of memories that I will never forget.
Justin Howard: “Tyler showed me the way to act both on and off the court. He was a phenomenal representation of The Ohio State’s Men’s Volleyball culture. His presence in the locker room never went unnoticed and his on-court maturity was something that everybody tried to recreate. Tyler was who I looked up to and who the team admired as well.”
