Styers' father was raised on Ontario's Six Nations reservation. Styers, who is both Mohawk and Onadaga Clear Sky, often spent his summers there as a kid. He grew up to become a professional boxer, and continued boxing in the Marine Corps. After sustaining several injuries, however, Styers gave up the sport. He landed a job in sales then moved on to staffing, before opening his own staffing business. Now, Arrow offers one scholarship every year to students from the reservation.
