Jensen Helps with a Different Type of Bowl

Tyler Jensen of Fort Worth, TX, who earned an exemption to bowl on the Lumber 
Liquidators PBA Tour for the 2011-12 season based on his fifth-place finish in 
the Sands Regency PBA Regional Players Invitational, offered a helping hand at 
the 2010 Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl.
Jensen, in his second year of volunteering for the Dec. 30 Armed Forces Bowl in 
Dallas, served on the player hospitality committee assigned to assist Army in 
their players' suite.

"I am very happy to be a part of such a great bowl event,” Jensen said. “Not 
only is the football game great, but the purpose of the Armed Forces Bowl game 
is so much more. Last year I had a family member in attendance who serves in the 
Marines and it felt great to see him and the military get the recognition they 
deserve for everything they do for our great country."

Jensen said the players’ schedule was full while visiting the Metroplex, but he 
hopes one year to take the teams bowling.

Jensen is one of more than 100 PBA title winners who will compete in the 
“Champions Field” in the $1 million PBA Tournament of Champions Jan. 15 and 16 
at Red Rock Lanes in Las Vegas. If he finished in the top half of the Champions 
field after 14 games, he’ll advance to the Elite Field where he’ll have a shot 
at the record $250,000 first prize. The Tournament of Champions finals will air 
on ABC on Saturday, Jan. 22, at 2:30 p.m. Eastern.
