Tyler Robertson signed a letter of intent to continue his soccer career at Tennessee Wesleyan University today at Notre Dame's Varallo Gym.

Robertson was a four-year starter for the Irish, and in his first three years, helped Notre Dame to two state tournaments.  As a junior, Robertson was selected both All-State and Times/Free-Press Best of Preps.

"I have really enjoyed my career at Notre Dame, and we are hopeful that we can win it all this," said Robertson with a smile on his face.

"Tyler has been one of the hardest working athletes I have ever coached," said Irish coach Jim Schermerhorn.  "He also has a great attitude and is a tremendous leader."

"I'm excited to attend Tennessee Wesleyan, and I'm anxious to play at the next level and continue to work on my game," said Robertson.  Robertson is a well-liked member of the Notre Dame student body and beyond, as more than 150 friends, fellow players, faculty and coaches were on hand for his signing.
