Tyler Linderbaum Impacts Hometown – Sports Illustrated Iowa Hawkeyes News, Analysis and More

Mention the name Tyler Linderbaum to a youngster in Solon and chances are you’ll get a smile and a pair of bright eyes in return.

Linderbaum is more in this town of 3,000 than bragging rights, a consensus all-America center at Iowa and a first-round NFL Draft pick. He is a 6-foot-3, 290-pound giant of an idol.

“Absolutely he is a role model,” Solon Mayor Steve Stange said. “A humble person that worked very hard for what he’s achieved.”

No one understands the importance of a positive role model more than Dr. Davis Eidahl, Superintendent of Schools for the Solon Community School District.
