Tyrre Burks is a motivated Entrepreneur born and raised on the Southside of Chicago with his younger brother and single mother. Tyrre attended Harper College and transferred to Winona State University. Burks lost his mother in 2007 to a car accident involving a drunk driver, leading to the guardianship of his younger brother at the age of 24. Remaining dedicated to his family, education, and his love of the game, Tyrre became a quick stand out at WSU as a wide-receiver. After graduating Winona State University, Burks went on to play football professionally in Europe and the CFL (Canadian Football League.) Unfortunately, his entire football career was plagued by injuries and ultimately came to an end by the time he was 23 years old. Although injuries cut Tyrre’s football career short, they also gave him insight into a problem that needs to be solved, which led to the creation of Player’s Health in July of 2015. He believes the more we know about the environment we are exposing our children to, the safer we can make the sports they play everyday. Burks currently resides in Minnesota with his beautiful wife Jennie, daughter Brooklyn, and son DaMarcus.
