Auburn senior tennis standout Tytus Metzler is our OSF St. Anthony's Athlete of the Week. Metzler made a deep run in the state tennis tournament as a junior, and looks to keep that success going his senior year.
"I'm very good at being consistent," Metzler said. "I can hit the deep ball with a lot of spin. It's one of my strengths. My serve is one of my strengths too."
Metzler placed in the top eight, bringing home a medal from state last year. He looks to make a fourth straight trip to state this spring.
"It was fun last year," Metzler said. "I'm sure it'll be fun this year. I'm going to do my best, not worry about what I place and just give it my all."
Metzler is part of a recent surge in tennis talent in the Rockford area. He hopes to make some more big memories on the court as the spring season continues.
