 Tyree received a serious leg injury during the tornado that hit Louisville, MS on April 28, 2014. After several weeks in a Jackson hospital and several surgeries, he is now home with his family. When asked about walking again, he stated that he is definitely going to walk again.

Tyree is the son of Moby Holmes who had two daughters who were injured in the tornado also. All have been released from the hospital.
