ACU splits matches in Waco
No surprise here. Abilene Christian’s defense, one of the best in the nation in Division II last year, was the star in Saturday’s annual Purple-White scrimmage at Shotwell Stadium.
Eric Edwards and Blake Rudd returned interceptions for a touchdowns and the defense kept the offense out of the end zone on 11 series.
“Coming off last season, where they were one of the better defenses in the nation, I think they’re building on that,” ACU coach Chris Thomsen said. “They’re real positive. We just want to continue to see those guys progress and make plays.”
Cary Fowler is thinking national championship at Tarleton State
By JOHN HENRY
Special to the Star-Telegram
He’s a native Kentuckian who packed up his professional dreams and moved to Texas.
And his visions for the Tarleton State football program are, appropriately, as big as Texas.
“I want this program to be a Division II national power,” said Cary Fowler, who was hired as the Texans’ 25th football coach earlier this month. “I think with the mentality that Tarleton State has I’m going to have the resources. I want these kids to have a meaningful education and stay four or five years and develop a true program.
“It’s already in place, but I want to take it to the next step and be a national power.”
Kok keeps punting hopes alive
Broken Arrow’s Joe Kok has the numbers.
Now, he’d like a National Football League team to call his number.
A four-time All-Lone Star Conference North Division punter at Northeastern State, Kok hopes his playing days aren’t finish.
This 2006 Broken Arrow High School graduate won’t quit until his last kick.
Kok will get a chance to display his goods in two upcoming combines in Las Vegas and Phoenix, designed for kickers.
“I’ll give both of those my best efforts. That’s all I can do,” Kok said. “Hopefully, it will be good enough to get me a chance.”
QB Marsh sparks White team to win
The Buffs battled the stiff north wind and spitting rain Saturday morning at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium, as the White squad, with Martin as honorary coach, held off the Maroon squad, with Null as honorary coach, 35-20, in the annual spring game in front of about 250 chilly fans.
Martin, WT's all-time receiving leader who is now with the Carolina Panthers, was thrilled with his 1-0 "coaching" record.
"I love it. It feels good, especially when you defeat Keith Null it is even better," Martin said with a laugh. "This was unbelievable. I was here for two years when the program was down. I think this program has had one of the biggest turnarounds in college football history."
