Robert Tonyan was one of two children born to his parents, Tammy and Robert. While Robert is a tight end, his sister, Danielle, was an all-conference volleyball player.
His parents were Bears fans growing up. However, their neighbor Gendes had such an impact on young Robert that he became a Green Bay Packer fan.
His birthday party surrounded 20 teams, a different team each year. Robert’s parents still each have shirts from his birthday parties. The Favre jersey is 24 years old.
Robert’s parents never miss any of their children’s games and are always there to cheer them on, shouting and cheering as they do their best on the pitch.
Their two children grew up to be athletes. Her sister Danielle is a former volleyball player. She was on the all-conference volleyball team for the Sky High basketball team. Throughout her brief athletic career, Robert’s sister managed to achieve some impressive stats.
In 2013, she received All-MAC East team honors. Additionally, Danielle took part in a total of 27 games, of which she started 10, and she ranked tenth in the MAC in scoring in conference games.
Likewise, Robert was signed by the NFL team Detroit Lions in 2017. He was playing for Indiana State University in NCAA football when the Lions picked him as an undrafted free agent. He called his mother on his birthday to announce the good news.
His father, Robert Sr, couldn’t believe his son would play in the NFL. Her mother, Tammy, also couldn’t hold back tears of joy. “Robert, you’re on the team! Oh my God, I’m so happy for you.”
Elder Tinyan recalled the good old days when Robert was just a kid and didn’t like football. Although he started playing in the garden, he did not immediately develop a passion for football.
Robert, 28, first landed the quarterback job in fourth grade. He continued to play it through elementary school, high school, and even through the first two years of college. However, he was moved to the tight end position when he joined the Kings.
