KTSW Sports’ Favorite 2019 Football Season Photos

Today Texas State Football would’ve held the annual spring game at Jim Wacker Field. The game pits two intrasquad Bobcat teams to compete against each other to display skill development and improvement over practices during the months of March and April.

Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the last spring practice concluded on March 12 before spring break. The team has yet to practice since and fans were left with withdrawals of Bobcat football.

At KTSW Sports, we miss all of Texas State athletics, especially football. To ease the pain, we compiled the best photographs taken by our very own sports photographer Nathan Rarangol

Continuous updates and analysis surrounding all things Texas State sports can be found on Twitter at @KTSWSports. As many await the return of sports and look forward to head coach Jake Spavital’s second year at Texas State, let’s take a look at the best of the 2019 season:
