Tyler Heffernan, News
Tyler Heffernan is an easygoing Wilmington, N.C. transplant who figures he'll fit in just fine in the Lowcountry. You can find him with a notepad and pen in hand around town, led by his sometimes-trusty GPS--to the delight of his loyal Eye of the Tyler readers. For whatever reason, he's chosen the career path of giving up Friday nights to cover all the high school athletic action readers can handle. He'll stick an audio recorder in the faces of sweaty players and coaches to give you the inside scoop. But, he wouldn't have it any other way. What's a weekend without that anyway? Tyler's passion turned from athlete to sports reporter when he realized he couldn't dart down the field for a touchdown, swish a few 3-pointers and make birdie putts all on the same day. Now he gets to bounce around fields, courts and courses in the East Cooper area covering kids that do just that.
