Eagles captain Morley accepts scholarship to Alaska-Fairbanks

Press Release

Surrey Eagles captain and leading scorer Tyler Morley has scored again, landing a scholarship to the University of Alaska-Fairbanks for next season.

The Burnaby native is a a four-year BCHL veteran and is closing in on 200 games played. Morley is known as a tireless worker and has set the tone for Surrey this season as they sit in second place in the Coastal Conference.

"Since taking over as captain last year, Tyler has been the heart and soul of the Surrey Eagles and leads by example through hard work and his sacrifice for the team," said Eagles head coach Matt Erhart. "This season has also taken his offensive game to the next level and he is developing into a complete two-way player.

"The Surrey Eagles are very proud and excited about Tyler committing to Alaska-Fairbanks."

Morley, whose younger brother Brandon plays with the Eagles too but is not committed to school, has already established new career highs in goals (20) and assists (24) this year with 19 games left in the regular season.
