Tyner a two-time winner at OSA on Sunday


Brenner, Stitt, Kelly, Stoll, Michaelson and Larner also honored

The name of the show was, officially at least, the Oregon Sports Awards.

But maybe, based on the results, the OSA — held Sunday night at the Stanford Theater at Nike World Headquarters — it should have been renamed the Metro League Sports Awards. Current or former Metro League athletes won eight awards at Sunday’s show, with Aloha senior tailback Thomas Tyner winning both the Johnny Carpenter Prep Athlete of the Year award for the 6A/5A category, and also Prep Football Player of the Year award. In his senior season, the University of Oregon-bound Tyner set a state record of 3,415 rushing yards, and also set the state’s single-game rushing record with 643 yards and 10 TDs in an 84-63 win over Lakeridge. by: JOHN LARIVIERE - DOUBLE WINNER - Aloha's Thomas Tyner accepts one of the two awards he won at Sunday's Oregon Sports Awards.
