A week before Texas State head football Coach Everett Withers enters his first Maroon & Gold game next week, there is still stuff to clean up after this past Saturday’s practice.
One thing is for sure, this team doesn’t lack energy, but with some key seniors having left the program, spring ball is always rough around the edges when the underclassmen are being not asked, but forced to step up in big-time roles for the first time in most of their college careers. These Bobcats under Coach Withers and new staff seem to have a chip on their shoulder more than ever – and everyone is fighting for a spot.
When asked if the team has a starting quarterback yet, Withers showed no lean towards rising senior Tyler Jones, who is second is Texas State’s career pass competitions. The good with that is it raises competition.
“The day before wasn’t too good, so today they had a little motivation,” Withers said.
As fans should be excited to see Bobcat football in its earlier full swing look, keep in mind the team does have until September 3 to get things together.
“We got a long way to go,” Withers said. “We’re not even close to a position to say what kind of team we have; we might not know that until week one.”
The Bobcats will play their Maroon & Gold Spring Game on Saturday, April 9 at Bobcat Stadium.
