Tyler Burns wants to one up his dad. Having graduated from Oak Ridge High School this past spring, Tyler recently signed a letter of intent to pole vault for University of California, Berkeley, where his dad was inducted into the Cal Athletic Hall of Fame. Brent Burns would like nothing better.

A three-time Pac-10 champion in pole vault, Brent still holds the school record. Now Tyler is ready to make his own mark. A latecomer to the sport, Tyler actually tried pole vaulting once when only 4 years old. It didn’t take. For years, soccer dominated his attention while he pole vaulted intermittently.
