Mr. Tyler Forsee is the new head football coach for Centralia High School this year.
Forsee graduated from Centralia High School in 2003 and then furthered his education at Culver-Stockton College. While he was in high school, he competed in football, wrestling, and track. During his last two years of college, he started coaching football for Culver-Stockton. Forsee then spent 5 years coaching football, wrestling and middle school track at Higginsville High School. He has been coaching for a total of 15 years.
This school year Forsee will be working in the weight room with the responsibility of strength and conditioning. During the season, he looks forward to seeing which players will take initiative when needed and analyzes where his team stands when competing against the other teams. Forsee said, “I hope to have a successful season by, of course, winning games, but also by having a positive impact on the players as well.”
The 2020 CHS football team’s schedule began by earning two wins–one against Hallsville, the other against Brookfield. Forsee believes that Macon, Palmyra and Monroe City, all CCC teams, will be tough competitors this coming season.
Forsee has been married to Megan Forsee for ten years. He and his wife have three children: Grayson, who is eight; Paisley, who is five; and Gannon, who is one.
Forsee enjoys coaching and feels that “the most rewarding part of being a football coach is building the relationships with players that go beyond the football field.”
