Tyler "T.Y." Anderson Ellis (born August 25 1996 in Riverside California) is a former football quarterback who had a three-year semi-professional career with the Hi-Desert Vipers and Virginia Swarm. Updated by: Jason Bernard
Ellis played QB and OLB for Lassen high school before becoming a walk on at Oregon State University. After his short time spent at Oregon State University as an outside linebacker, Ellis attempted to become a walk-on at the University of Nevada and University of Georgia, but was unsuccessful due to his existing injuries and academic setbacks. Ellis found his way back to football by way of the Pacific Athletic Conference in the Southern California Semi-Pro football League. A linebacker turned quarterback, he spent his first two seasons with the Hi-Desert Vipers as a quarterback, recording 597 all-purpose yards in his rookie season with 517 yards passing, 80 rushing 8TD (2 Rushing 6 passing) and 2INT.
In his second season with the Vipers, Ellis was injured in a week 1 loss against the East L.A. Spartans. He suffered two broken ribs and was moved to the injured reserves the rest of the 2016 season.
After being released in the offseason by the Hi-Desert Vipers, Ellis had workouts with multiple semi-pro teams and colleges in California, Nevada, and Georgia, as well as the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. He later signed with the Virginia Swarm in the East Coast Football League.
