Everett Withers and company hit the ground running as the Bobcats began fall camp at Bobcat Stadium on Monday. When fall camp began there were some things that just were a little different. There have been a lot of changes since Withers arrived but here are most of them.
Wide receivers Brice Gunter, Justin Gamble and Demun Mercer were all dismissed for breaking team core values. Gamble suffered an auto accident and is currently in ICU. No further updates so far about his health.
Eddie Printz, a graduate transfer from Missouri joined the team this summer to play quarterback for the Bobcats. Printz will challenge three-year starter Tyler Jones for a starting quarterback position.
Associate head coach John Wiley decided to leave Texas State for personal reasons. To replace Wiley, the Bobcats hired Troy Douglas to coach safeties. Douglas came from Florida State where he served as quality control.
Freshman defensive end, Ramon Readus, was dismissed from the team for breaking team core values a little before fall camp started. He was arrested in July.
Sophomore Nick Bingham was moved from running back to outside linebacker during the summer. Once fall camp started he then decided to leave the program.
Since Withers took over the program in January, 17 players have either been dismissed or have left the team.
There have been changes in various positions for Texas State and the most notable is L.G. Williams who will be a utility player for the Bobcats. Williams was recruited from Cibolo Steele to play quarterback but will have different position roles for the Bobcats. Williams has been playing wide receiver in the first week of fall camp. L.G. can also be seen in special team drills.
Another change in the offense is sophomore A.J Krawczyk to change positions from running back to wide receiver.
The wide receiver position is one to be looking at over the development of fall camp.
