Overview:

Tyler Polak came into his freshman year for Creighton as a defender, logging the most minutes out of any of his Blue Jay teammates with 1,828 minutes, playing in all of the first 15 matches and not being substituted until the 83rd minute of the 16th game of the 2009 season.  Polak played in all 20 games of the season and was honored the Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the year.  Polak‚Äôs one assist of the season gave the Blue Jays the win over Wisconsin and his second career goal proved to be the game winner in the defeat against New Mexico in the NCAA tournament.
