DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas -- When the LSU Tigers take the field next season, Tyler Briers-Buentello will be there with the best seat in the house, on the sideline as a cheerleader.

"LSU is the greatest place for doing what I want to do," said Briers-Buentello.  "I want to cheer in front of a crowd and their fans are off the charts."

During the summer of 2007, Tyler was on the football team at Dripping Springs High School when a car accident brought his playing days to a screeching halt.
