Zion-Benton’s 2018 CB/S Tyler Geiman has been working hard this offseason and is ready to lead the Zee-Bees his senior season. We talked what schools are showing the most interest and some of his under the radar teammates. I also got Zion-Benton head coach Rob Moynihan’s thoughts on Geiman.

LPI: What are you doing this offseason to get ready for the season and take your game to the next level? Did you play 7on7 this year or were you in any other sports?

TG: During the offseason I was in the weight room constantly because I knew I had to get bigger and stronger to be able to compete at the level I want to be at. Even though I was in season for track during the spring, I still managed to get the job done in the weight room. I did participate in 7on7 during the offseason too. I played with NSE for a few games and ACS future elite.

LPI: You currently don’t have any offers at the moment, but I think you have what it takes to play at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?

TG: I can bring a lot to the table for any college program that I go to because I can be put anywhere on the field and get the job done. You can put me at receiver, safety, corner, or nickel and I will make the plays you need me too. I also have a high IQ for football on both offense and defense.

LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?

TG: The main schools that has shown the most interest so far is Northern Illinois University, Syracuse, University Of Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois University and a few more along with a couple D2, D3 and NAIA schools.

LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits set?

TG: I haven’t been on any visits because 7on7 games would pop up or I would just have a filled schedule. I do plan on trying to attend a few visits if nothing pops up because most schools have invited me to game day visits.

LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?

TG: They are are a few people on the team that are being overlooked by coaches.

Jason Freeman – Jason is a linebacker that isn’t afraid to hit at all and he can also do some damage on the offensive side of the ball too.

Jerome Crawford – Jerome is going to be our starting quarterback for this upcoming season. Even though he’ll be junior this year he has been practicing with varsity since his freshman year. Jerome has good arm and can fit passes into tight areas. He can also scramble if needed but other than that if you give him time in the pocket he can make things happen.

Jordan Chisum – Jordan is the next person I would like to bring up. Jordan has been on varsity since his freshman year and he will be a sophomore this year starting at running back. Jordan maybe a little short but he is strong and will get you the yards you need. He’s a running back that can put a move on you but, can also lower his shoulder when needed.

Tyrese Crumpe – He is our slot receiver. Tyrese is a fast guy and can do great things with the ball when it’s in his hands. Last season we had a lot of seniors so he didn’t play as much but this year should be the year he makes his name get out.

Coach’s Corner

Zion-Benton Head Coach Rob Moynihan on Geiman on and off the field

“Tyler Geiman is a tremendous football player. He was brought up as a freshman because his maturity and tremendous character came to the forefront early. Tyler is a very conscientious young man who is very coachable and works extremely hard to perfect his skills. This year Tyler will play WR as well as DB. It is hard to believe, but this offseason Tyler has shown he may be better receiver than DB. 20 TD’s at the University of ND 7 on 7. His best days are ahead of him in which ever position he is recruited to play.”
