After a redshirt year in 2015 and just three disappointing appearances in 2016, junior right-hander Parker Joe Robinson needed to change something. A new head coach in David Pierce was joining the program.

A packed spring game visitor list and Hoops notes on an 2019 Austin-area big man and visiting grad-transfer combo guard in Part II of the Humidor.
A big weekend lies ahead for the staff. First and foremost is the exhibition scrimmage on Saturday night. It’s not even a real scrimmage as the team is broken up differently than it normally is.

Or, college entrance interview.
With the Houston Under Armour All American combine being held at Westfield this past Sunday I had a feeling I’d see 2018 UA All-American Keondre Coburn.

At 6-4, 220 with a background as a RB at powerhouse HS Southlake Carroll, Lil’Jordan Humphrey is a pretty unique football player. That was certainly Charlie Strong’s impression when he recruited him, “I don’t know what he is but I just know he’s a football player.”

Head coach Tom Herman knows that defensive coordinator Todd Orlando’s group has a high likelihood of picking up where it left off at the Texas Bowl, and reports have indicated they have done just that in 2018.
An idea that was planted in Texas head coach David Pierce’s head in the fall to honor his ultra-utility man came to fruition on Tuesday, as senior Jake McKenzie played all nine positions in a single game.
It was professor appreciation day at the Denius Fields as some of the men and women who help change the world were able to see what some of their students do on the football field.
