College Football: Breaking down Texas State's long-yard defense

Sports Editor

Chances are, if you've watched Texas State this season, you've noticed a particular defensive formation in long-yard situations.

The Bobcats’ prevent defense has been a staple of defensive coordinator Randall McCray’s since his days as a coordinator at Middle Tennessee State. When McCray moved on to Gardner-Webb in 2013, he took the package with him and it became a defining trademark of the Bulldogs’ top-tier defense in the Football Championship Subdivision for three seasons.

San Marcos wants to make a statement in District 14-6A.

“Just a statement that we came here to play,” senior linebacker Colby Vidrine said. “Definitely, a defensive statement that we don’t want people scoring on us that much.”

The Rattlers statement came through loud and clear last week when they defeated Austin Akins, 24-3, in their district opener. But head coach Mark Soto doesn’t want his team to become overconfident with four district games remaining.

College Football: UL Monroe is of the same mold as Texas State


Everett Withers and Brett Elliott made themselves familiar with UL Monroe (2-3, 0-2 in the Sun Belt) head coach Matt Viator last season.

There was a chance that James Madison would match up against Viator’s McNeese State team in the Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs so the two made sure to do some advanced scouting.

Withers actually played against Viator’s Cowboys back in 2008 when he was defensive coordinator at North Carolina. The two met up at the Sun Belt head coaches’ meetings back in the spring and had the same thought.
