Tyvis Coats competes in bowling, basketball, athletics (track and field) and powerlifting in the Panhandle area. The Palo Duro High School senior became involved with Special Olympics Texas in 2006 and is a dedicated athlete who gives it all he's got, even when he's not going for the gold. A member of Palo Duro's varsity basketball team, Coats also makes time to volunteer at area SOTX events and at Camp Agape. He has plenty of cheerleaders and fans in the stands rooting for him during competitions, including his brother, a fellow SOTX athlete.
