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.

Friday Night Lights Quotes

"When Jason Street went down the first game of the season, everybody wrote us off. Everybody. And yet here we are at the championship game. Forty thousand people out there have also written us off. But there are a few out there who still believe in you."

Eric Taylor

We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.

Eric Taylor
