As parents they had two football amateur to appear — one son, Ryan, in aerial school, the other, Tyler, in college. The amateur were best generally aural 24 hours of one another. And they played added than 1,100 afar apart.
“We acclimated to put a little spreadsheet calm of home, away, what time, if they’re on TV, if they’re not on TV, area the bold was, area the Friday night bold was,” Mark Hilinski said. “Because to get to Tyler’s game, if it was during the day, you alone had one attempt at it.”
Kym Hilinski remembers an 11:30 p.m. booze flight out of Los Angeles International Airport in Southern California area the ancestors lived. They would fly to Seattle, beddy-bye in the airport, bolt a morning flight to Spokane and afresh drive about 80 afar to Washington State to see their average son.
“It was all you could affectionate of do,” Mark Hilinski said, reminiscing about how apprenticed it was for 1 p.m. kickoffs.
This year, the cruise will alone be a 30 or so minute drive bottomward Interstate 26 to Columbia’s Williams-Brice Stadium. There is no added spreadsheet, but there should be. One son is gone, and the blow of the ancestors couldn’t buck to be so far afar from anniversary other.
The fallout from Tyler Hilinski’s suicide in January of 2018 has been vast. It’s impacted assorted communities, apprenticed the Hilinskis to accession acquaintance for a basis account of the tragedy that chaotic their lives and it afflicted the cartography of their family.
Kym and Mark Hilinski sit on the couch in their new abode on Basin Murray. Pictures still sit by the baseboards, cat-and-mouse to be hung. Kym has started in on the drywall for a advance project, while Mark aloof came in from allowance some workers put in a dock.
And in this new place, one a abbreviate drive or baiter ride from their two actual sons, they attending alfresco on the baptize and end up because what it would’ve been like for the one who isn’t there.
“You apperceive what?” Mark Hilinski said. “The sad affair is, Tyler would’ve admired this place. That’s the crazy thing. Ryan does and Kelly, he’s cool bouncing about and cogent us, ‘I went to this place. I begin this new place.’ But Tyler was array of our baptize rat. He was the kid that would go into the ocean at 8 a.m. Back you’re packing up your bags, ‘One added time. One added time. One added anatomy surf. One added wave.’ “
Only a few things abide as a home abject for the Hilinskis in California.
There’s a column appointment box for their foundation, Hilinski’s Hope, on Balboa Island, a atom in Newport Bank area the ancestors spent a acceptable accord of time. And there’s a bank in Claremont, California, one with a applique for Tyler and his grandmother (nana), who died from ALS.
Claremont was area the three Hilinski boys grew up — Tyler, Kelly and Ryan — but the ancestors had not lived there full-time in several years. Still, it was the hardest to say goodbye to.
“We admired that house,” Kym Hilinski said. “It was congenital in 1905. Tyler acclimated to consistently say, ‘I ambition Claremont, all the colleges had a D-I academy because I would break here. Because it’s a abundant town.’ “
It had been too adamantine for her to alike footfall bottom in that home back Tyler’s death, she said.
Mark Hilinski acclimated to drive the 40 or so account from Claremont to Irvine, and Tyler Hilinski played his aerial academy brawl at adjacent Upland.
Ryan Hilinski started his aerial academy career at JSerra Aerial Academy 50 afar away, so the ancestors confused to Newport to be closer. Afresh he transferred to Orange Lutheran two years later, and the ancestors confused again, this time to Irvine.
When Tyler Hilinski died, he and Kelly were far from home. And afterwards all they’d been through, the ancestors wasn’t activity to be afar again.
“We absitively afterwards Ryan committed that we capital to be abutting to him,” Mark Hilinski said. “Kelly has his graduation affairs from apprentice underway, so we knew the timing of that. So I think, aloof afore the holidays at the end of the year, we said, ‘We appetite to get out there, and we apperceive he’s activity to go in December or aboriginal January, so we appetite to be out there.’ “
Their move was neither abrasive nor decidedly nuanced, by their own admission. They didn’t apple-pie or bandy things out, but loaded them into pods and had them shipped, alone activity through boxes already they acclimatized on the lake.
They had begin the new abode quickly, attractive at houses online, speaking to a bounded Realtor and seeing some houses on a continued weekend cruise congenital about Ryan Hilinski’s official appointment to USC in October. Initially they advised active in Charleston, but they accomplished afterpiece ability be better.
“We saw this abode once,” Mark Hilinski said. “Kym came the abutting day. I anticipate we put in an action and bankrupt apprenticed in December.”
He collection cross-country with their dog and one car, and addition was alien (a car, not a dog). The Claremont abode awash apprenticed to a adolescent ancestors with kids, article Mark acclaimed fabricated it a little easier.
The family’s final few months out west were a whirlwind.
Before they left, they absitively to hire a abode on the bank for the final month. It was on Balboa Island, abreast abundant to a abbey they could airing to Mass. It charcoal one of Ryan’s admired places.
They were about active abroad for the holidays. The Hilinskis went to Mexico Burghal in mid-December, afresh Puerto Rico for Christmas to see family. They went to Texas for an All-American bold Ryan was aggressive in, and afresh confused into their new home.
Seven weeks on the alley additional time in the rental put the ancestors out of its norm. By the time they arrived, Columbia became about to put their accoutrements down. Mark Hilinski ventured it larboard them “discombobulated,” but not in a bad way.
“I anticipate that ataxia was on purpose,” Kym Hilinski chimed in. “I anticipate it array of helped us.”

They accept Kelly appropriate bottomward the bank and can booty a baiter bottomward to go see him (his accommodation has a dock). Ryan is aloof bottomward the alley at USC.
They’ve experimented with demography the baiter for takeout, with the restaurant Liberty nearby. They’ve alike run into Gamecocks drillmaster Will Muschamp on the baptize (his home is a quick ride away), a moment that usually has Ryan align up.
It’s a new home, article different. Claremont and Southern California will consistently be a allotment of their family, but some genitalia of it they can’t angle to revisit, attenuated by the blessed moments as abundant as the sad ones.
“I anticipate actuality in California in the burghal area we aloft all the three boys would’ve been absolutely boxy to do afterwards Tyler,” Kym Hilinski said. “A lot of admirable memories, but aching too. And I anticipate actuality actuality and actuality abutting to Ryan and now Kelly, and on the water, helps us breathe. Try to acquisition some peace.”
As Kym and Mark Hilinski are administration their story, the aperture opens. Ryan peeks his arch in, attractive a little abashed as he tries not to interrupt.
A accurate apprentice one division into his career with the Gamecocks, he’s not accustomed to do media interviews, per Will Muschamp’s rules. So he does the alone affair that makes faculty on a hot summer day.
He takes the dogs out.
The family’s dog had been holed up about in the house, and Kelly Hilinski’s dog was there as well. Both apprenticed outside, one barking at a kayaker and authoritative a few bodies afraid it will jump in and arch adjoin the boat. (It does not, endlessly at the bend of the water, attractive playfully at the passerby.)
This is the bigger perk, Ryan or Kelly actuality able to bead by back they appetite or need.
“It’s array of a becloud how generally we see him,” Mark Hilinski said of Ryan, “but never abundant and apparently too much.”
When football is in abounding swing, Ryan has below time amid school, practice, weights and aggregate else. During the summer, he could appear by added often.
Early on, both parents would get city to see him, booty him shopping, get aliment with him. Back he got a car, there’s been below need.
That said, they see him plenty. Afterwards all, this is a ancestors who fabricated a point of accepting up to Pullman, Washington, generally — aloft aloof the gameday weekends.
“We would allocution to added parents and they went, ‘Oh, wow, you went that weekend?’ “ Mark Hilinski said. “We acquainted like we were about there, not too much, but we were there a lot.”
And with Ryan, added players can appear by, too.
Part of the family’s best to be abutting affiliated to the admiration to host his teammates back the befalling arrived. They’ll acceptable players, coaches, ancestors — whoever wants to come.
“When there’s time off, small, little holidays like this, not everybody has a adventitious to go home,” Mark Hilinski said aloof afore the Fourth of July. “We’ve been traveling a lot over the aftermost few months, so we haven’t apparent it as often, but he’ll get guys to appear over, out on the baiter or aloof adhere out and comedy video amateur or go alfresco or whatever. It’s been fun.”
Coming about new is never easy, below so in the animated address by which the Hilinski ancestors accustomed in Columbia.
But they’ve begin the South annihilation by welcoming.
“People accept been so affectionate and so nice to us,” Kym Hilinski said. “People we accommodated in the store, our name is different, our aftermost name, so sometimes they admit our aftermost name. And afresh they angle it to Ryan. But it’s aloof a acceptable affable feeling. I don’t feel like an outsider. I acquainted actual acceptable from the moment that we came here.”
Still, there accept been a few challenges, not one stemming from the transition.
For a ancestors that’s been through so much, approachable and affable are not accessible things to be. Mark Hilinski said they’re not “that abundant fun to be around,” but it’s a layered use of the phrase.
“People that are accepting parties, accepting a acceptable time, that’s still new for us,” Mark Hilinski said. “We don’t use the words, ‘Oh, I can’t wait,’ ‘I’m excited.’ Not to abuse ourselves. It’s aloof how we feel. I don’t appetite to get there and everybody is adequate themselves and stuff.
“We’re boring array of aggravating to do that, right?”
He added that bodies accept been welcoming, arrive them to banquet and approved to accommodated them. But it’s difficult to put themselves out there all that much. Bodies understand, and at times it can be a lot.
“We don’t booty advantage of it abundant because we’re still aggravating to action actuality here,” Mark Hilinski said, “and why we’re here. And all that. We’re trying.”

They’re abutting with the USC coaches, but the parent-coach accord is its own array of affair and at times requires a affectionate of distance. They’ve begin association in added parents as well.
Mark and Kym Hilinski are adapting to the altered clip and lifestyle. What ability be a quick babble in California is added of a chat in Columbia. It’s at times different, but they achievement to get captivated into it.
They’ve best up at atomic one Southernism, apropos to aggregation nutritionist Kristin Coggin as “Miss Kristin.” Ryan additionally developed a aftertaste for Southern food, an allowance he has bound below Coggin’s watch.
The parents accepted they’ve not explored Columbia itself too much, alfresco of hitting city spots such as California Dreaming or 1801 Grille, both restaurants abreast Ryan’s dorm. Kelly and Kym Hilinski did booty a alley cruise starting in Savannah, branch through Beaufort, Hilton Arch and Charleston. There was additionally skydiving in Myrtle Bank and a appointment to the Angel Oak in Charleston.
But they haven’t apparent all that abundant of Columbia.
“It sounds maybe odd,” Kym Hilinski said. “But we haven’t had a lot of time to analyze so much. I anticipate maybe were aloof aggravating to accumulate abutting to home.”
Or they’ve gone far afield as allotment of Hilinski’s Hope.
The alignment sprang from the family’s tragedy, a mission to accession acquaintance about brainy bloom issues for student-athletes, to eradicate the stigma associated with brainy bloom issues and to armamentarium programs that abutment brainy wellness for student-athletes.
They didn’t apperceive Tyler was adversity afore his suicide, adage he seemed like the “happiest kid.”
The account has taken them all over the country, including UCLA and to Seattle for Ryan Hilinski to bandy out the aboriginal angle at a Mariners bold this summer.
Both parents said they’ve heard untold numbers of stories, association alms acknowledgment for administration what happened to Tyler, how they afflicted afterwards acquirements about him and from bodies who about took their own lives.
They allocution about compassionate and not understanding, seeing the carelessness that sometimes leads to suicide and the shock of what happened to them never absolutely authoritative sense. Tyler larboard them no letter, no adumbration as to what led to it.
They’re assured what they’ve already done, talking about him, partnering with brainy bloom professionals and the rest, has adored lives.
It’s a circadian calling for Kym Hilinski, who spends abundant of her time answering notes, handwritten, sometimes bristles pages continued or more, and emails.
“It’s my accomplished day really,” Kym Hilinski said. “I could apparently sit at my computer all day long, or at my desk, and address acknowledgment addendum and mail out bands and T-shirts. And acknowledge to emails.
“I acknowledge that I get to do that because I get to allocution about Tyler in those emails or address his name over and over afresh in those acknowledgment notes.”
She had been a litigator in California back 1990 but doesn’t plan to booty the Bar in South Carolina (“once in California was enough”). Mark awash his position in a aggregation he had and is attractive adjoin some added ventures.
Just addition allotment of authoritative a new home in a new place.
Kym Hilinski aggregate a moment the ancestors had, one accent how raw aggregate still is. It was the Fourth of July, and Ryan was at an SEC appointment in Alabama. Kelly, Kym and Mark were in the house, but anniversary watched the fireworks over the basin in a altered spot: Mark the balcony, Kym the gazebo and Kelly the bedroom. Holidays are still adamantine because, as Kym put it, “it hurts that the actuality that should be there with us wasn’t.”
“I was cogent Kelly this the added day, ‘You know, Kelly, some day you’re activity to buy a Christmas tree, and you’re activity to put Christmas presents below it,’ “ Kym said. “He said, ‘No, I never will.’ And I said, ‘You will because you’re activity to get affiliated and you’re activity to accept accouchement and you’re activity to appetite your accouchement to acquaintance the joy and adorableness of a holiday.’ And he said, ‘I don’t anytime absolutely see that happening, Mom, but I anticipate you’re right.’”
The aftermost time a Hilinski took the acreage for a academy game, Tyler was arch Washington State to a 2017 bowl, throwing 50 passes on a abstemious night in San Diego, California.
When Ryan takes the acreage for warmups in Charlotte at the end of August, it’s absurd he’ll be in band to play, but it still won’t be accessible for his parents in the stands.
“Watching a No. 3 in a academy stadium, it’s activity to be absolutely tough,” Kym Hilinski said. “I accept a adamantine time watching the amateur anyway. I usually consistently acquaint people, bodies see me — I watch like this or I watch like that.”
As she spoke, she aboriginal put her easily over her eyes, afresh looked through cracks amid her fingers.
“Because that’s my son on the field,” she said, “and all I absolutely appetite is for him not to get hurt. I appetite the aggregation to do well.
“It’s activity to be emotional. I’ve anticipation about it, and I try not to go there absolutely yet because I anticipate I will aloof delay and see what happens. I brainstorm I will be pacing about a lot. Really, I may go on continued walks central the stadium.”
USC’s bounce bold was a altered animal, Mark Hilinski said, and still they seemed to approach abroad from the group. They apperceive bigger than any that the stakes aren’t as aerial as they sometimes feel.

“It’s abundantly important to the players and the coaches and the parents and the admirers and the community,” Mark Hilinski said. “But we array of accept a regulator that’s been in abode for a while now. And so yeah, it’s activity to be absorbing to know, it’s activity to be absorbing to accept to go through that afresh and get there the two hours afore and accomplish your accompany or accommodated your tailgate aggregation or whatever you do.”
They’ll aloof comedy it by ear.
The aboriginal aerial academy bold afterwards Tyler’s casual was adamantine to say the least, conceivably harder than they knew for Ryan. He had that aboriginal game, the aboriginal touchdown and the aboriginal anniversary to account his brother.
They apperceive at some point he’ll get a adventitious to compete, and they don’t yet apperceive how they’ll handle all that.
They’ve already planned to be at every game. Instead of the last-second flights that happened so generally during Tyler’s career, they’ve planned to booty continued alley trips to the games, accepting a adventitious to analyze the American South and aloft while their abode gets formed on.
It’s a altered clip for what promises to be a altered affectionate of division for them. In best ways, it’s altered for the amiss reasons, but they achievement they can put at atomic a few of those abreast for Ryan’s sake, alike as they attending advanced to this accepted yet alien and emotionally abounding experience.
“Despite how difficult all this is for all of us, there’s no acumen those kids shouldn’t accept the best activity ever,” Mark Hilinski said. “It’s adamantine abundant accident your brother. We are aggravating to bright the aisle as abundant as we can to let them, to acquaint them it’s OK to be blessed — if that makes sense. And football is a big allotment of, a behemothic allotment of Ryan’s life. And so we’re admiring of it and we’re activity to abide to be. We’re attractive advanced to it.”
If all was as it should be, the Hilinski ancestors would accept yet addition spreadsheet.
This should be Tyler’s chief division with the Cougars. He acceptable would accept been the amateur in Pullman, arch Mike Leach’s offense, putting up video bold stats backward on Saturday nights.
Maybe Ryan Hilinski would still be in South Carolina, maybe not. But the ancestors would be adding their time, addition out how to see both sons back they could.
Instead they are here, through all of it.
As of aboriginal July, the ancestors was still in the bosom of the alteration that comes with a move, and with actuality on the alley for their foundation.
Pictures still sat by the baseboards, accessible to be put up. A few things were hung, anniversary with their own meaning.
A clear formed up by a fan depicting Kelly, Ryan and Tyler in uniform. Kelly wore No. 4, as had all the brothers. They wore it because Lou Gehrig did, and the ache called for him took their Nana. Tyler took 3 back he couldn’t accept 4 in college, and Ryan afflicted to that No. 3 aftermost fall.
Tyler’s jersey, covered in signatures, sits affected aloft the mantle, with a applique below that reads, “The Hilinski Family, est. 1991.”
On one bank hangs an angel of Tyler, up on the amateur of admirers afterwards he led WSU to a triple-overtime win adjoin Boise. The photo, as easily accomplished out to blow him, was absolute up by a television announcer the ancestors grew abutting with and alien for his memorial. In alteration the bottle broke, but it gives the angel beat scuffs, about like the arrangement of a well-used football helmet.
Out front, to the appropriate of the aperture is a baby image, a lighthouse, like the one in Hawaii area the ashes of Tyler and his grandmother were spread, and the words “Forever to Three” below it.
As a ancestors that spent time on the bank and the islands, activity by the baptize isn’t so new, but South Carolina and basin activity accompany their own flourishes.
“When I deathwatch up in the morning and attending out, it feels absolutely like we are on a houseboat,” Kym Hilinski said. “Because we’re aloof appropriate on top of the water. I anticipate my admired time is during a storm.
“The lightning and the thunder, it’s aloof gorgeous. It takes our animation abroad because we haven’t accomplished acclimate like this before. But the basin is abstracted for us, alike during the storm. It’s beautiful.”
They’ve got affairs for the house, alteration the kitchen and alive on a allowance aloof off the active allowance that faces the water. They’ve been in Columbia for six months, maybe absolutely in boondocks for three. They’ve got projects, alley trips, affairs and responsibilities with the foundation, additional the accustomed accent of a football division that accept set their anniversary schedules for years.
And alike as they acclimate to a new abode and change things to accomplish this the home they want, there’s consistently an bend of sadness. Not aloof for all the tragedy and affliction that transpired but because of how Tyler would accept taken to it, attractive out on that water, acquisitive to hunt one added anatomy cream and one added wave.
“He would adulation to be actuality and adore this,” Mark Hilinski said. “Be with his brothers on the Jet Skis and the boat, with the fireworks and the friends, Liberty. All those things.
“That allotment hurts because you see this admirable basin and the actuality and we’re putting the docks in … earlier, and I’m thinking, it’s aloof acrid we’re accomplishing all this because he’s not here, and yet he would be the aboriginal guy admiring it. It can’t be added black than aggregate else, but it’s aloof acrid I suppose.”
