|The Pat Tillman Foundation invites you to join Eric Byrnes|
as a member of Team Tillman Ironman.
Like Pat, Eric Byrnes grew up playing sports in northern California and idolized Pat as he followed his football career from Leland High School to Arizona State University and the Arizona Cardinals. When one of Eric’s best friends from high school became Pat’s teammate at the Cardinals, Eric got to spend time and really get to know Pat.
Eric explains, “Meeting a guy like Pat is somebody you come across once in a lifetime. Being around him and getting to spend time with him, makes you want to be a better person.”
Immediately following Pat’s death, Eric became one of the Pat Tillman Foundation’s largest supporters. Through a personal donation and by introducing the Foundation to local third party events, Eric helped share the Foundation’s mission and raise additional funds to support its scholarship programs. Watch this video to see Eric share his thoughts on why Pat inspires him.
After his retirement from Major League Baseball, Eric was in search of a new way to challenge himself and before he knew it found himself training for and competing in Ironman events. Read more about his experience in Triathlete Magazine.
Please complete and submit the Team Tillman Application to Challenge. Commit. Support. and join Eric as a member of Team Tillman Ironman today.
