Tyler Owens joined the staff this December as a National Advisor after graduating from Texas A&M University. Tyler will begin law school in the fall, so will only be lending his services to the staff for one semester, so we decided we needed to hurry up and get to know him.
Why did you want to join the National Staff?
I saw it as a great opportunity to utilize my time and effort during the spring semester while transitioning from A&M to law school. BYX served me well during my time in college, so I can think of no better way to give back than being able to serve as a National Advisor. I love this fraternity and I love working with college guys. This isn’t just a job; it’s an absolute privilege. Also, the free merchandise and ski trip make a nice added bonus.
What positions did you hold at Texas A&M?
What do you like to do with your free time?
Sculpting my guns at the office, adding new leather bound books to my library, playing jazz flute and spending time with my true companion, Baxter.
If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?
Easy, a t-bone steak. I would extract the bone and use it as a shank to get myself the heck out of there.
Who is the most influential person in your life?
It’s a tie between Ke$ha and Kanye West. And of course Abraham Lincoln.
Name three items on your bucket list.
Helicopter Ski, Be featured on ESPN Top 10 or Not Top 10, Play Amazing Grace on the Bagpipes…at my own funeral (it would be recorded of course.)
If you could have dinner with three people, living or dead, not named Jesus Christ, who would they be?
Michael Scott, Ron Burgundy, and Ron Swanson
What’s the last book you read?
Love Does by Bob Goff. No seriously, I’m actually being honest about this one.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Married, a couple of kids, working as an Air Force JAG, driving a truck, living in Texas, Jesus, ‘Merica.
What are you passionate about?
Missions, sports and working with people.

Poop-flavored chocolate. No doubt.
