HIGH SCHOOL—He earned PrepStar All-Central Region honors at defensive end as a senior, despite suffering a season-ending knee injury in Mullen’s second game of the year at national power De La Salle (Calif.), suffering both torn ligaments (ACL and MCL) and meniscus that required surgery (which he had in November). He was a first-team All-5A West Metro League performer as a junior offensive tackle. In roughly a game-and-a-half at defensive end before being hurt as a senior, he racked up 14 tackles, five quarterback sacks, nine pressures, two forced fumbles and a pass broken up, appearing to be on his way to a big season. He did not play much defense as a junior, and in a reserve role as a sophomore, he had five hurries, two fumble recoveries and a sack. He was a two-year starter at left offensive tackle, and did not allow a quarterback sack or was called for a single penalty his junior or senior seasons (14 games); he allowed only four pressures and had numerous touchdown blocks. In the season opener against Valor Christian his senior year, a 14-13 win, he had a huge game: he had eight tackles, including two quarterback sacks, two caused fumbles and a pass deflection. One of his top games at offensive tackle came in a 34-18 win over Bear Creek as a junior, when he had a monster block on a reverse that led to a touchdown, as well as three direct TD blocks inside the red zone. Under Coach Tom Thenell, Mullen was 6-5 his senior year; under coach Dave Logan, the Mustangs were 9-3 his junior season and 14-0 his sophomore year, claiming the 5A state championship (as well as the 5A West Metro League title). He also participated in track as a junior (throws; owns a personal best of 45-0 in the shot put) and plans to go out again this spring.
ACADEMICS—He is interested in majoring in Computer Science at Colorado. He was a member of the Mullen Honor Roll his freshman and sophomore years.
PERSONAL—He was born Oct. 25, 1995 in Beaufort, S.C. His hobbies include ceramics (pots, bowls, vases), playing the piano, and “taking things apart and putting them back together” (Xbox, building improved remote controls, etc.). His father (Timothy Sr.) played wide receiver at Mississippi State and Delta State. He is very active in community service, having volunteered for the Ronald McDonald House (serving meals), Variety Colorado (assembling bicycles for underprivileged kids), World Vision (collecting clothing and shoes to ship overseas), the YMCA (spending time with kids) and Habitat For Humanity (landscaping).
