December 21\ 1994-February 1\ 2017 

Tyler graduated from Glen Oak High School in June 2013. He started playing football at the age of eight and became one of the best cornerbacks to come out of Stark County. He also ran track for Glen Oak and earned numerous awards in both sports. One of his most notable achievements included running in the Jr. Olympics for the 100-meter dash and placing ninth in the nation. He also participated in the NFL's National 7-on-7 Tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana with the Cleveland Browns in July 2012. 
Following high school in 2013, Tyler attended Muskingum University where he continued to play football. He was one of the best defensive backs in the conference. In fall 2015, he decided to transfer to Michigan State University to pursue football in the Big Ten Conference. Although he was red-shirted that year, he earned a ring for his role in helping the team to secure the Big Ten Conference Championship. In fall 2016, Tyler returned to Muskingum University to complete his college career. 
T-Lo was popular and well-liked amongst his peers. He had a very quiet and humble demeanor, but his smile was infectious. He had many special friends and touched many lives. On February 1st, 2017, we lost this bright star to complications of diabetes.

Tyler Scott Lancaster Foundation Community Center

 A local Community Center to support the development of the educational, recreational, cultural and personal welfare of members of the Stark County community. Open to the public, the facility will be available to all race, sex color, creed or religion. Our goal is to establish a Diabetes Medical Clinic within the center. All can enjoy group activities, social support, public information and many other purposes that will enrich the lives of all generations.
