Tyra Collette is a hot girl with a rebellious streak, and there's never a dull moment when she graces the screen.
Tim Riggins' on-again, off-again girlfriend seems to be one of the only people in the town who doesn't follow football religiously, and is often disdainful of the way the Dillon Panthers are worshipped.
She has expressed an interest in leaving Dillon, but currently still lives with her single mother, Angela, who has her own set of problems. Tyra has an older sister who works as an exotic dancer, and Tyra has shown a knack for using her looks to make a buck or get attention, as well.
Late in the year, she friendly with Landry Clarke, despite often showing her open dislike of him in the past. Their friendship looks poised to grow as Landry comforted and helped her almost immediately after a stranger at the Alamo Freeze attempted to sexually assault her.
Tyra has taken Julie Taylor under her wing, much to the dismay of Julie's parents at first. However, Tami Taylor and Tyra forged a bond of sorts at school, with the guidance counselor trying her hardest to help Tyra reach her career ambitions.
