Tyler England was an unknown entering last season.
But he won’t fly under the radar going into the 2019 campaign with the Navarre Raiders.
On the heels of a breakout junior season, the standout wide receiver is ready to build on what he accomplished a year ago when he caught 41 passes for 674 yards and six touchdowns.
England said playing with guys like Dante Wright and Quinn Caballero helped him emerge into a go-to threat in the passing attack.
“It was good for me last year. Those two were among the best I’ve played with. They got me some exposure,” England said. “I have to work extra hard now. I have to replace Dante and that’s a hard thing to do, but I’m going to do it to the best of my ability. Hopefully, I can fill his shoes.”
Wright graduated as the all-time leading receiver at Navarre, becoming the first in program history to roll up more than 2,000 receiving yards.
England might not hit that mark, but he isn’t lacking confidence.
“I feel really confident going into the season,” England said. “I have to work hard and can’t take anything for granted. I have to keep working and giving 110 percent.”
