Inoke Langi’s first season at a skill position could be a big one.

At least according to the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame who named Langi to the 2016 Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award Watch List. 38 players of Polynesian decent were selected from 24 different Football Bowl Subdivision programs including Langi. The award is given to the most outstanding Polynesian college football player that “epitomizes great ability and integrity.”

Guns in our country are really in the spotlight. Fear is a big factor among many now in our society — terrorism, night club mass murders, policemen being murdered, domestic violence.

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.

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.
