In Tyler Mollenkramer’s four years at FUHS, he has participated in numerous sports.
Mollenkramer played baseball his freshman and sophomore year, and wrestled freshman through senior year. Tyler enjoyed wrestling more because it made a significant impact on his high school career.
“I will definitely miss wrestling because it made me more disciplined and stronger person,” said Mollenkramer.
Mollenkramer was a three year varsity wrestler and lettered as a junior before becoming the team captain senior year.
Even though being captain meant having lots of responsibility, Mollenkramer reflects on the opportunity as a positive experience.
“It was definitely fun. It’s stressful because you have to conduct yourself in a manner where all these guys are looking up to you,” Mollenkramer said. “And you want to make a good impression as a captain, you have a sense of I, ‘want my team to do good because it reflects how I am.’”
Another one of Mollenkramer passions is agriculture, as he has enjoyed participating in Future Farmers of America (FFA) throughout high school.
“Agriculture was definitely eye-opening. It taught me a lot about myself, a lot about how responsible you need to be taking care of animals. It also taught me a lot of patience because with pigs, patience is key because it’s very hard to train them,” Mollenkramer said. He will be awarded his FFA cord during graduation.
Mollenkramer plans to major in political science and minor in criminal justice at Biola University.
