OSSEO (WCCO) – The Osseo Orioles feature Bridge Tusler. He is the kind of football player that makes those Friday night lights seem brighter.

Tusler is a rare athlete – one that is now on his third position on offense this season, and is still making plays. Bridge is the man at Osseo, and now he’s the quarterback.

“It’s great. You know, I played in a little video games and all that. But to actually come out and actually kind of say the cadence, be kind of a little bit of a quarterback is kind of fun,” Tusler said. “I get that a lot on the point guard side. You kind of control the momentum, you control everything.”

He was indeed the point guard on a state basketball championship team. According to Osseo football coach Darrin Lamker, Tusler exudes confidence and performs on and off the court or field.

“You can’t go wrong when you give him the ball, or you have him lead your team at a pasta feed or whatever it is. He’s just a great leader and a great kid,” Lamker said.

Tusler wants to lead his team to an upset over Eden Prairie on Friday night, and believes that only happens if his team is all that it can be.

“They’re very physical. They’re coachable – that’s the biggest thing. I’ve been on non-coachable teams, and that one person can spoil it all. We all love each other,” Tusler said.

Rest assured this: wherever Bridge lines up Friday night, he will get the football.

“We put him at receiver against Totino-Grace and he had 100 yards receiving. He had a few snaps at quarterback. You just kind of move him around and just give him the ball. And you win or lose at your best, and that’s what we’re going to do,” Lamker said.
