Canton-Galva's Tyson Struber picked up offers from Kansas and Kansas State last week.

Canton-Galva High School’s Tyson Struber has only played two seasons of 8-Man high school football, but it has been enough to impress the top two colleges in the state.

Friday morning, Struber announced via Twitter he had received his first Division I offer at Kansas State. Five minutes later, Struber announced he had also picked up an offer from Kansas.

“[Kansas State] offered me last week,” Struber said.

When asked when the Kansas offer came, he replied, “Almost immediately right after the other.”

Struber said he grew up a KU fan, but transitioned to a Kansas State fan because of his family.

“Having these offers from Kansas schools makes me proud to be recognized in my home state,” Struber said.

Despite missing four games due to an arm injury, Struber still scored 20 total touchdowns, including three receiving touchdowns in the 8-Man Division I State Championship game.

Struber is listed at 6-3, 180, and recently ran a 4.44 40 at the Blue and Grey Combine in St. Joe Missouri.

Struber will no doubt be one of the top prospects in the state for the next two seasons. And while many more Division I offers are likely to come, Struber is doing his best to remained focused and in the moment.

“My team that I am playing for these next two years will come first,” Struber said. “I will continue to improve myself in order to help the team.

“It is definitely a motivation to get better and still a little surreal at the moment.”
