Arlington grad V'Keon Lacey finds a fit a Angelo State
V’Keon Lacey’s journey through college football has at times been a long, wandering voyage full of obstacles. But he’s found a change of fortune, a new home and what appears to be a breakthrough season at Angelo State.
The junior transfer’s confidence in his ability never wavered, and he’s displaying it as the Rams’ leading receiver (30 catches, 428 yards and three touchdowns) during the team’s surprising 3-1 start. It’s all the more impressive when you consider that Lacey, frustrated by his lack of progress, almost quit the game two years ago after bad experience at Southwestern Oklahoma State.
"I was on the verge of giving up football," said Lacey, a 6-foot-4, 205-pounder who graduated from Arlington High School. "I was pretty close. I was doing all this work and I was seeing zero results. Nothing. I wasn’t getting the ball. And they [coaches at Southwestern] were like, 'We see you being a tight end in our program,’ or 'You’re not fast enough.’"
After weeks of soul-searching and longs talks with his mother and Scott Peach, his high school coach, Lacey decided to "follow my heart and go somewhere else." That somewhere else was Cisco College.
"I felt it was life-changing," said Lacey of his one year at Cisco. "It changed my whole outlook in playing ball."
WT confident of turnaround
While the West Texas A&M offense has struggled to get into a rhythm this season, the defense has put together 2½ ball-stuffing performances.
