Trinity finally posted their schedule (or at least I saw it posted today on instagram) and they have the same non-conference opponents as last year; home to McMurry, away versus Hardin-Simmons.

Maybe HSU gives them a Result versus a Regionally Ranked Opponent.

However, TU is my pre-season favorite to win the SAA.

Wondering if I could solicit any potential knowledge or feedback about 5A D2 football level, Rock arrest hs?  We picked up a kid going to hobart next year, a QB, from that hs, but  my knowledge of HS Tx football basically comes from Friday night Lights and every unathletic hubris filled person claiming to as home.  Neither of which are very good sources of course.

If by chance anyone follows that division of football the kids name is Peyton roberts.

Thanks in advance

Is this the guy?

Rick Reedy High School in Frisco TX?

Rick Reedy HS has about 1800 - 2000 kids in Grades 9-12, so it is a pretty competitive high school.

I am sure that he has had very good coaching. He does look a little slow, but that may not be a problem in the Liberty League.

From his webpage, it appears he played JV ball as a junior, which is not all that uncommon at 5A and 6A.

Berry gets to visit two years in a row.  I wonder how that worked out?

The SAA reworked the entire schedule for some reason; not sure why, but this was one of the impacts.

Saw Trinity's 'commits' on Instagram today, 38 young men.  Only one QB, Brooks Klutts of Boerne (a smallish town NW of San Antonio), a 6'1" sophomore transfer from Incarnate Word (who saw basically no PT as a freshman as you might expect).  Interestingly, he is still (as of this writing) on the UIW 2019 web roster.  8 DLs, 7 DBs, a herd of OL (10), 6 WR, 3 LB, 2 RBs, and one TE.  This size of entering class is typical of what Coach Urban has wanted the last several years.   https://www.instagram.com/tufootballtx/ for anyone who wants to have a look .

Late transfer at QB for Trinity - Tucker Horn;was on the roster at Abilene Christian last season but saw no PT as a first-year:

https://acusports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=7386

6'0", 190lbs; as a senior at 4A Graham HS was 238 of 382 for 4,221 yards and 52 TDs, 6 INT.   Honorable mention AP All-State 4A.  Sounds like a solid addition to the roster.

Interesting given the transfer of the young man to Trinity from Incarnate Word.   What was the quarterback situation looking like for Coach Urban's team before the transfers?  Will these players be competing with an incumbent for playing time or will they be competing with each other for starting position?

I don't have any inside information; they had 5 QBs on last year's roster, none of whom were seniors, and announced 1 QB signee for this year's incoming class prior to this announcement.  Last year's starter, rising junior Wyatt Messex, was solid but not spectacular in his first season as starter (114/205 for 1672 yds, 20 TDs/5 INTs, 249 yds rushing/2 TDs) in leading the team to its best record since 2015 and a win over conference champion Berry in the season finale. 

I've seen Coach Urban rotate QBs on occasion but his preference is to go with one guy, so I imagine everyone's going to compete with Messex being the guy when camp gets underway - but having two transfers from D1 programs (highly unusual for Trinity as it would be for most D3 schools) at the position should make things interesting.  Will be interesting to see if Horn still has four years of eligibility since he never saw the field at ACU.

The league's going to be interesting this year.   I think Trinity and Centre will be strong.  Wondering how much Berry will bring back this year after their run.

Looking forward to our season on the Mountain as we have a solid class returning with some good recruits.   

Time to start the countdown to opening weekend?

And for Kickoff  ;D   With baseball behind them I expect Pat and the gang to start working on it pretty soon.

And speaking of Trinity...  saw this note about Coach Mohr being added to the College HoF ballot.   Great honor for both him and the program (even if I did hate the way his programs treated our Tigers during his coaching tenure :) ).

I thought Centre  lost a good number of seniors last year.  Most of them were getting significant playing time, iirc.  So their season may depend on who steps up.
