HIGH SCHOOL - As a senior, the only year he played high school football, he earned All-Colorado honors from the Denver Post, Mile High Sports Magazine and American Family Insurance/9News All USA Colorado (the Post selected just two for its team). He garnered Mile High’s “Comeback Player of the Year” honor and also was the publication’s player of the year at his position (defensive lineman). He also earned All-Continental League honors and was its defensive lineman of the year. In just nine games as a starting defensive end (he missed two), he was in on 78 tackles for the year, 57 solo, which included 24 for losses and 11 quarterback sacks for 118 yards in losses. In addition, he had 35 quarterback hurries, four forced fumbles and three passes broken up. Top games as a senior included three double-figure tackle efforts, highlighted by a 31-16 win over Douglas County, when he had 15 stops (11 solo), five for losses including three sacks and four hurries; and in a 35-12 win over ThunderRidge, he had 14 tackles (seven solo, four for losses with a sack). He had eight hurries in a 42-7 win over Chaparral. Under coach Mark Nolan, Regis was 9-2 his senior year, claiming the Continental League title.
ACADEMICS - He is interested in Business as his major at Colorado.
PERSONAL - He was born November 27, 1995 in Centennial, Colo. His hobbies include music (playing the piano included), and films; he has aspirations of becoming a film producer one day. His father, Harald, played collegiately at Washington and for Denver in the NFL; he played 112 games for the Broncos between 1994 and 2000 and was a member of two Super Bowl champion teams. As to why he received the Mile High Sports Comeback Award, he is a true example of perseverance: he was in a near-fatal car accident (with his father) right before the start of the freshman football season in 2010. He wasn’t cleared to play until two years later due to the impact on his ribs and internal organs. He was ready to play as a junior, but in practice, he suffered a fluke shoulder injury that required surgery and six months of rehabilitation.(Name is pronounced Tare-run Hass-el-back.)
