Hello, my name is Dimetrio Tyson and I am currently the Alternative  School teacher for Opp City Schools, and the varsity football defensive line coach. After graduating from Elba High School and lettering in football, I was blessed to recieve a schloarship to play football at Jacksonvillle State University in Jacksonville Alabama. In 2010, I was a member of the Jacksonville State University team that has the biggest upset so far in school history with a double overtime win vs. Ole Miss. In 2011 I was a member of the Ohio Valley Conference Champions. After my senior year in 2012 I was named 1st team all conference for football. Was able to play professionally for the Dallas, Cowboys of the NFL, the Ottawa Redblacks of the CFL, and most recently the San Jose Sabercats,Arena Bowl Champions in 2015, and the Arizona Rattlers of the Arena Football League where i was named 2nd team all league. For the past three years I coached with the Elba High School football team, where in 2014 we were state runner ups, and in 2015 was a memeber of the 2a State Championship team. Currently in my first year at Opp City schools coaching and teaching, I am looking forward to having a spectacular 2017-18 school year and helping students reach their full potential!
