After coaching four All-Americans in 14 seasons at NCAA Division I Murray State and Division II Midwestern State, first-year Tarleton State defensive coordinator Cary Fowler says this season’s Texan defense has the potential to have the most talent, speed and depth of any unit he has coached.
That may come as a surprise to many who follow Tarleton after seeing the Texans lose 10 starters from its 2007 squad. But in addition to defensive end Jamal Steamer, the only full time starter who is back, Tarleton has a handful of other players, including Ben Dambold, Marcus Phillips, Tramaine Wright and others, who saw extensive action last fall. Add to that mix a recruiting class that has caused quite a buzz, and you have a defensive coordinator excited about what lies ahead.
