I remember Tinsley as an intense competitor on the field. More than that sports, I recall a very nice and funny young man... always laughing and making me laugh as well. Mostly laughing at ourselves. Never taking ourselves too seriously.

Off the field I can not recall a time where he wasn't smiling. I will always remember him this way.
