Former Carroll QB to be Inducted into NAIA Hall

By Beacon Staff

HELENA — Tyler Emmert, who led Carroll College to four NAIA national football championships from 2002 to 2005, is being inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame during the 2013-14 school year.

Emmert was a four-time All-American, three-time MVP of the national championship game and two-time national player of the year. He posted a 51-3 record as a starting quarterback.

The Helena native established three NAIA passing records, including a 70.4 percent career pass completion percentage — the highest percentage of anyone at any level of collegiate play. His record for career total offense is 13,979 yards.

Emmert was an assistant coach as Carroll won two more NAIA national titles and has returned to the sidelines this fall.

Emmert is among 11 people who are being inducted into the hall of fame this year. He is the fourth Carroll representative named to the hall. The others are: Bob Petrino, Raymond Hunthausen and Casey FitzSimmons.
