Tyler Bishop is a senior, Communications major, and the Assistant Captain of our Men's Hockey team.  Tyler came to us after graduating from Ramsey High School, Class of 2010, in his hometown of Ramsey, New Jersey.  In his time at UMass Boston, Tyler had many accomplishments both academically and on the ice. He was an All American in his junior season and he helped his team get to the Frozen Four. He was also 1st team all-star in the NEHC ( New England Hockey Conference) and is currently a leader of  all defensemen scoring in the country. Tyler plans to continue playing hockey in his spare time, and would like to apply what he learned in our Communications Program by finding a job that combines his two great passions, sports and media.
