Tyler Dupree has committed his long-term future to Salford Red Devils by penning a fresh three year deal, keeping him at the Club until at least 2025.
The prop made his Betfred Super League debut in May when he made the switch from Widnes Vikings and grasped the opportunity with both hands. After a string of impressive displays, he became a regular starter in Paul Rowley’s set-up towards the end of the campaign.
The 22-year-old began his Rugby League journey at Salford’s scholarship six years ago before leaving to join Leeds Rhinos’ academy.
He has since enjoyed spells at Featherstone Rovers, Batley Bulldogs and York City Knights, before signing for Oldham Roughyeds for the 2021 Betfred Championship season – finishing that year with the competition’s Young Player of the Year Award.
He has now explained why he made the decision.
“I feel like I owe the club a lot. They took a chance on me and helped me fulfil a dream of playing Super League so I feel like signing a new deal is a good way to repay them,” Dupree said on the club’s Twitter before explaining why he thinks the club will achieve success.
“I think anything is possible. I think we have a good team and a good set of lads.
“There’s no selfish players. Everyone is selfless.
“I think everyone is looking forward to the season starting and showing what we can do.”
On the club’s website, he added:
“I’m over the moon to be extending my stay with a club who gave me the opportunity to fulfil my dream and play in Super League.
“It’s a great moment for me and my family, and hopefully many more years to come!”
