Tyler Larsen is the offensive lineman for the Washington Football Team of the National Football League (NFL). He has played for the Miami Dolphins in 2014, the Washington Football Team in 2015 and the Carolina Panthers from 2016-2020.
Married with three children, he and his wife, Samantha, are on the road to recovery with their oldest son who was diagnosed with autism in October 2019. Learning of his son’s autism diagnosis and he couldn’t be home helping Samantha and his son, made the 2019 football season the hardest season Tyler ever had to go through.
Tyler and Samantha were not willing to accept that nothing could be done for their son. Samantha started researching autism and found TACA. In a short period, their son made great advances.
Tyler wishes to bring more awareness to autism and wants others to know that there is hope after diagnosis. He wants to help other fathers find a way to be active in their child’s autism journey.
