Arlington Dedicates Memorial to Tyler Lewellen

Arlington Dedicates Memorial to Tyler Lewellen
Tyler Lewellen Memorial Bench

In August 2013, tragedy struck the Arlington High School football team, when Tyler Lewellen took a hard hit at practice and eventually went into a coma. Five days later, he had left this world along with a great hole in the hearts of his family, friends, all those at Arlington and across our district. After his passing, RUSD Board Member Tom Hunt began raising money to help the team through their difficult time. Enough generous donations made it possible to build a permanent memorial to Tyler that will look upon the team that he so loved playing for. That memorial was unveiled to his loved ones and Tyler’s fellow lions.
