Four years ago, Tyler Jones wasn’t on anyone’s radar.

He was the sub-200 pound true freshman quarterback from Stephenville who was expected to sit behind either senior Tyler Arndt or spring game standout Jordan Moore. Following his breakout game against Wyoming, he was the young kid amongst a team of 59 juniors and seniors in 2013.

Now his role is reversed.

Back in March, Frankie Griffin’s name wasn’t known to many Texas State fans.

Or even the media, for that matter.

And rightfully so as Griffin, who was redshirted as a freshman and sat out the 2015 campaign with a knee injury, hasn’t compiled any stats in a Bobcat uniform.

Yet, in the aftermath of Texas State’s spring drills, the Spring native earned the praise of Everett Withers. 

NFL's first female official felt pressure — after the season

IRVING (AP) — Sarah Thomas was never hit by the pressure of being the first woman to be a full-time NFL game official until after her first season on the job.

It wasn’t until this past offseason that Thomas pondered what really happened after accomplishing her goal, which was to work full-time at football’s highest level and not necessarily be a trailblazer in doing so.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Jordan Spieth walked with purpose down the long corridor toward his locker, not stopping to look at the photos and scorecards that cover more than a century of golf history at Baltusrol.
Maybe that was just as well.

History has proven to be his toughest opponent this year, and it was bound to be a losing battle.

Sun Belt Media Day: As Texas State tries to regain pre-2015 form, Withers wants to put his stamp on program

NEW ORLEANS — This time a year ago, Texas State was trending upward.

Since jumping to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2012, every year prior to 2015 had been an improvement for the Bobcats who progressed from 4-8 that first season to 6-6 in 2013 and eventually 7-5 in 2014.

Last season was supposed to be Texas State’s best ever in the FBS ranks. Many predicted that the Bobcats would make their first bowl appearance and improve their stock as a burgeoning Group of Five program.
