‘I’m Coming to Take Over’: With Quiet Confidence, Penn State Football Commit Tyseer Denmark Ready for the Next Step

2024 Penn State football commit Tyseer Denmark transferred to Imhotep Charter ahead of his senior season, giving him a chance to hone his talent against some of the best players in the state by playing for a perennial powerhouse program. 

A four-star recruit at receiver who stands 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, Denmark has been included amongst the ESPN Top 300 at various points in his career. Following Imhotep’s state championship win over Peters Township Friday, Denmark described how transferring helped him reach new heights as a player.

Future Penn State Stars Tee Off

“It’s actually a great experience. Coming to Imhotep made my level of football go even higher. My drive for football has been even higher because the guys that we have here, the guys that you’re surrounded by, they’re just dudes,” Denmark said. “D1 guys, a lot of guys that just make plays. Being here with Kenny [fellow Penn State commit Kenny Woseley], going at it with him each day just sharpens each other.”

Denmark said that he and Woseley go to each other for advice. If he wins a rep in practice, he makes sure to let his teammate know what gave him an edge so that they can pursue their shared goals: not just at Penn State, but maybe even in the NFL some day. 

“Even when I beat him, I’ll be like ‘bro, I beat you because [of x reason]. Just because I know at the end of the day, we all want to go to the same place,” Denmark said. “Our main goal is the NFL, so I just figure out what I can do to help you.”

Woseley described the other end of that friendly competition, explaining what he thinks makes Denmark stand out as a player. At one point, Woseley called Denmark the best wide receiver in the state.

“I think he’s elusive enough to where he can get the ball in his hands. Also he can run routes well,” Woseley said. “You can’t win them all, especially against a good receiver, so it’s definitely a challenge. You learn a lot going up against that type of player.”

Learning From the Sidelines

As a transfer from Philadelphia Roman Catholic, Denmark had to sit out during the playoffs according to PIAA eligibility rules. Denmark said he did whatever he could to help the team win, whether it was suiting up as a member of the scout team—an ironic contrast for a player with his level of talent—or helping younger players learn the ins and outs of the game.

“A couple practices, if my coach needs me to practice I’d suit up. If I didn’t do that, then I’m at the practice coaching the young guys. Being on the scout team was super crazy for me because there’s never anything for me to do [as a reserve]… I’d never done scout team before,” Denmark said. “Being a scout and running plays for everybody else was kind of cool, to be honest, because you get to go at your guys, make ‘em miss, do whatever you want, give them a different look.”

Denmark said that when talking with his future coaches at Penn State, they focus more on getting to know one another than they do on the intricacies of football.

“The football part is gonna take care of itself. Every time we talk we just speak more so about life and school… me and my family,” Denmark said.  “It’s never about what’s going to happen when I get there or what we can accomplish when I get there. My head coach just cares more so about how I am as a person.”

Brimming with a quiet confidence, Denmark said he can’t wait to set foot in Happy Valley as a Nittany Lion. He also told Penn State football fans to be sure to watch him play.

“I’m hungry, I’m coming to take over,” Denmark said. “Just be there and watch the show.”
