12/13/2013 - 2013 ALL-ACC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): LB-Jack Tyler, Sr.-R, Virginia Tech (25)...Has been selected Second Team All-ACC for the 2013 college football season by the ACC Coaches. - Virginia Tech football

12/04/2013 - 2013 ALL-ACC SECOND TEAM (MEDIA): LB Jack Tyler, Virginia Tech, 6-1, 236, Sr.-R, Oakton, Va. (93)...Tyler is Tech's leading tackler on the nation's No. 3 total defense. He has 93 tackles, including 10.5 for loss, four sacks and a forced fumble. - Virginia Tech football

10/07/2013 - Don't dismiss Virginia Tech just yet because the Hokies have found a foundation with their defense. Already they've encountered varied styles of offenses in repelling Georgia Tech and North Carolina in ACC play. "We want to be the best defense in the country," LB Jack Tyler said. That's a tall order. But the Hokies will have a chance to prove their worth. Their next game comes against Pittsburgh, which put up 58 points at Duke in its only previous ACC road game. The Hokies have at least one sack and one interception in their last 10 games dating to last season. - The Sports Xchange

09/26/2013 - Hokies get short week to prepare for option...A short turnaround is bad enough, but Virginia Tech's football team's abbreviated week comes before facing the most unique offense the ACC has to offer. The Hokies plan to stuff a lot of preparation into the four days between their last game -- a surprisingly difficult 29-21 triple-overtime win at home over Marshall -- and Thursday night's contest at Georgia Tech's Bobby Dodd Stadium. "We're packing a lot of stuff in a short period of time," Hokies coach Frank Beamer said. "And this is the only time we'll see this [triple option] offense all year."

For many of Tech's defensive players, the Yellow Jackets' triple-option offense is nothing new, but it is something that takes some time to get reacquainted with. "The last couple of Sundays we've taken some time to go over some of the techniques and whatnot that we do in the game plan. For me, I remember the entire game plan. It's a really cut and dry game plan," Hokies senior linebacker Jack Tyler said. "You know what you're going to do. You just have to be good responsibility-wise and do your assignment, so I wouldn't say anything is really going to be different this week."

Tyler said there won't be many alterations to last year's game plan, which helped the Hokies pull out a 20-17 overtime home win in the season opener. - The Sports Xchange

09/26/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: MLB Jack Tyler's skills are best suited when facing the triple option attack of Georgia Tech. Tyler's top two career tackle games have come in his last two contests against the Yellow Jackets. He had 17 stops last season and 12 in 2011. - The Sports Xchange

09/11/2013 - Scouting the Virginia Tech run defense: The Hokies held WCU to 111 rushing yards after yielding only 96 yards on the ground to Alabama in the season opener. Moreover, Tech has given up only one touchdown on the ground. In the past, tackling has been an issue for the Hokies early in the season, but that hasn't been a problem this year. They have swarmed opposing ballcarriers and kept them from making big gains. - The Sports Xchange

08/11/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: LB Jack Tyler led the Hokies in tackles and tackles for loss last year. The former walk-on will be expected to do more of the same in 2013, especially with Bruce Taylor (graduation) no longer lining up next to him. - The Sports Xchange
