Perhaps it’s that sunny disposition that makes the Goodyear, Arizona native such a natural acquisition for the Albuquerque Sol. It is also fortuitous for the Sol that Tyler’s girlfriend Alex Keeney is the daughter of Chris Keeney, a member of the Sol’s front office for some time. Chris put Tyler in touch with Sol Manager Matt Gordon who smartly recruited Tyler to backstop the Sol. Tyler and Alex met in the gym at Lees-McRae College, the only pair of Arizona natives at the tiny 800-person school in Banner Elk, North Carolina. For reference, the city itself has just over 1,100 residents according to the latest Census data. There is one stoplight in the town, but according to Pavlet it’s a pretty nice stoplight thank you very much.
