1. Jock who Loves Baseball

During his time in high school, Hoechlin was an active athlete playing a variety of different sports. But his favorite game was baseball.

While attending Santiago High School, he earned three varsity letters and named Best Defensive Player. After getting scooped up by Arizona State University, he served as one of the team’s outfielders.

2. Surfer Dude

One of the things that drives us nuts about Hoechlin is that he’s a surfer. And a good one at that! Because he’s a native of Southern California who grew up along the Pacific coast, it’s not that surprising.

In an interview he gave to Seventeen back in 2011, he shared the following: “I'm missing the beach, especially now that it's getting warming. I'm like ahhhh surfing. That's my new thing.”

At the time of this post, Hoechlin hasn’t joined the other Teen Wolf actors who have experienced so called “leaks” of their private photos. See this post and be warned it has links to adult imagery.

There’s no way we could create a list of 10 facts about Hoechlin unless we talked about his crazy, sick hot beard. Don’t you think the dude could be a facial hair model who offers shaving tips.

So where does Hoechlin get his magnetic looks? Well, the answer can be found in his jeans genes.

According to public records, he’s a mix of German, Swiss-German (father) and British, German, Scandinavian, Irish (mother). When you mix the two together, you get one very hot Tyler Hoechlin!
