Miami’s Daksh Tyagi Athlete Spotlight Presented by Jim Rexwinkle State Farm

Daksh Tyagi

Miami High School

It’s been a solid season for the Miami High School soccer team. Coming off a 4-10 season a year ago, the Wardogs looked to head coach David Douthit to help guide this team into Class 3A where they hoped success would follow, and it has. One player with a big role this season is senior Daksh Tyagi. Tyagi has played soccer since the eighth grade and loves being part of the culture at MHS. 

“As a student-athlete at Miami High School, what I love most is the strong sense of support received both on and off the field. The encouragement we get from our teachers, coaches, and everyone around us helps us succeed in every way possible. This environment not only fosters athletic growth but also personal development. Our teachers and coaches truly invest in our success encouraging us to go beyond our limits and it’s this exact holistic approach to student-athlete development is what sets Miami High School apart and makes the experience so valuable,” said Tyagi. 

 Tyagi is more than just a soccer player. He is a member of the student council, National Honor Society, and is the current senior class representative. Tyagi said he enjoys experiencing everything the school and the team have to offer. 

“I love the memories we’ve made throughout the years. The countless laughs and unforgettable memories have made the last four years such an awesome experience. This bond is also shown on the field as we continue to push each other regardless of the situation. Hopefully, this chemistry can peak as we look forward to make a deep run into the playoffs,” said Tyagi. 

The senior plans to attend the University of Oklahoma this fall but is looking forward to enjoying his summer before starting college. 

“I plan on attending the University of Oklahoma to major in Biology with a Pre-Med track. It’s a four-year plan that’ll help me get ready for med school later on. This path is the first big step towards the dream of becoming a Cardiologist. This summer, I’m planning for a long vacation to Florida, soaking in every last moment with my friends before we head off to college. I’ll also be preparing for the next big step, getting myself ready and excited for the journey ahead in college,” said Tyagi. 
 Away from school, Tyagi enjoys spending time with family and friends. 
 “You’ll see me either playing pickleball, hitting the gym, or watching a movie. I enjoy unwinding with evening walks, listening to music, and digging into good food,” said Tyagi.
