LIVINGSTON, NJ — In a 48-7 victory over Millburn on Sept. 10, Tyrell Garnes, a junior receiver/kickoff returner for the Livingston High School football team, had four receptions for 171 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a 92-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, earning him the title of Athlete of the Week on TAPinto Livingston.

Livingston Head Coach Robert Breschard said Garnes is a game-changer for the 2016 football team and an explosive player with the ball in his hands.

“His ability to make people miss tackles and then run with vision is special,” said Breschard.  “The great thing is for us is that Tyrell has gotten better and better each week. We saw his impact on our team throughout the summer and into our scrimmages, but on Saturday he took over the game.”

Garnes is a two-sport athlete, also playing basketball for the Lancers. If the opportunity arises, Garnes said he would love to play football in college.

As a junior this year, Garnes said his goal is to take the team farther than it's gone before, change the culture in Livingston and inspire the community.

“I'm honored to be named the first Athlete of the Week,” he said. “I want to thank my team—because without them I wouldn't be in the situation I'm in—and my coaching staff, who are very supportive and push me to be the best I can be.”

A new athlete will appear every Monday on TAPinto Livingston’s Athlete of the Week section, which will feature all Livingston varsity sports throughout the school year.

Livingston High School Athlete of the Week is brought to you by Michael Rieber MD, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, Orthopedic Consultant, NJ Devils and Director of the St Barnabas Sports Medicine Institute. Find out more about Dr. Rieber at www.gamedaydoc.com.
