FHC has now had three years of inductees enshrined into the FHC Athletic Hall of Fame. This year, five more athletes will be forever on FHC’s list of greats. Included this year is golfer Drew Preston, golfer Allie Tyler, former professional basketball player Kyle Visser, head lacrosse coach Tony Quinn, and head golf coach Paul TenEyck.

Drew Preston

Drew was able to play on the varsity golf team as just a 13-year-old. In 2006, he was able to make the super team and was all-conference that year. He won an all-conference award two more times in his career in 2007 and 2008.

2007 was one of the best seasons FHC golf has seen, making him an individual state champion and putting him on the all-state super team. Falling just short of a repeat in 2008, he was still able to be a member of the all-state super team and a state runner-up.

Allie Tyler

Allie was also a member of the FHC golf team throughout her four years in high school. She was able to succeed extremely early in her career, as she won the conference tournament all of her four years. In 2005, she made it to the state tournament and received her first-team-all-state nomination as just a sophomore.

In her junior season in 2006, she won the individual state title and was a member of the all-state super team. After a runner-up finish in 2007, she was again able to be an all-state super team member her senior year.

Not only was she an incredible athlete on the course, Allie was a member of the academic all-state team all four years as well.

After an illustrious career at FHC, Allie went on to play collegiately at Grand Valley State University. She was a member of the all-GLIAC team four years straight, and the all-region team her last three years. Her highest collegiate accolade was an all-American honorable mention in 2010.

Kyle Visser

Kyle was one of Rangerball’s best players in history. He was an all-conference, all-area, and all-state player in 2002-2003, and he took home two conference titles with his team in his tenure at FHC. He also was a major part of the team that won a district and regional final.

He moved on to play ACC basketball for Wake Forest University and was named a third-team all-ACC player in his time there. In 2006-2007, he was named the most improved player by ESPN. He is top ten in blocks at Wake Forest and was a captain in his final year.

He played professionally in Europe for 8 years and was a team captain of his last team in 2014-2015.

Tony Quinn

Coach Quinn established a winning culture throughout FHC’s lacrosse program. His teams won seven out of eight regional titles and went to the state championship games four of those years. He took home two state titles in 2010 and 2012.

He coached over 40 all-state players in his tenure as head coach, and over 15 all-Americans. He was voted Michigan Coaches Lacrosse Coach of the Year in 2008, 2010, and 2012. He was also voted as the United States Lacrosse Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2012.

Paul TenEyck

Coach TenEyck is still very much in the process of racking up more achievements, as he remains the coach of the boys and girls golf teams. He has won three district titles, six regional titles, and has had seven top-five finishes in the state championship. In 2009 and 2011, his teams won the state titles. They were runners-up in 2010.

He has been named the district coach of the year twice, regional coach of the year in 2008, and division one head coach on the year twice throughout his career. He was also named MIGCA State Coach of the Year and Michigan Coaches Association Coach of the year in 2012.

His teams have won over 50 tournament and individual victories.
