Tyler Stovall, founder of Stovall Athletics, was a three sport athlete at Hokes Bluff High School in Alabama from 2004-2008 and graduated as class Valedictorian. He represented his country by playing for Team USA in the 2007 Pan Am games (USA baseball's National team). Stovall was Louisville Slugger's National Pitcher of the Year, Gatorade Player of the Year, and Alabama's Mr. Baseball.

Stovall was drafted in the 2nd round by the Atlanta Braves in the 2008 MLB Draft (64th overall in the draft) as a left-handed pitcher. Stovall played 6 years of professional baseball before arriving on the Plains to play Auburn Football. He held for Daniel Carlson all four years; the pair set numerous field goal and kicking records. Stovall was a 1st team CoSIDA Academic All-American while at Auburn. He was recognized as the "oldest player in the SEC" nicknamed "Papa Stove" by his teammates. Stovall received the Unsung Hero Award for Auburn University in 2018 for his leadership qualities exhibited on and off the field to his teammates. To top it all off, Stovall came back to the baseball diamond for the Tigers as a graduate assistant in 2018 for coach Butch Thompson where he helped with the pitching staff. Casey Mize, the 1st overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, gave Stovall credit for teaching him the cut fastball before the season and taking his game to the next level.
