Football spring game Thursday

Staff Writer

It is not quite August yet but it is never too early for football in Texas.

The KC Football spring game is set to take place 4 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium.

“We are all just ready and excited to play some football,”  said head coach J.J. Eckert.

The Rangers are coming off of a great 2012 campaign. They had an overall record of 8-1 and went 5-1 in conference play, getting a bowl bid to the Inaugural Brazos Valley Bowl where they suffered a loss to Northwest Mississippi Community College.

KC will have a few vacant spots available after losing three All-Americans.

Linebacker Charles Woods was also the National Defensive player of the year, cornerback James Jones signed with University of North Texas and wide receiver Ed’Marques Batties.

The spring game will allow athletes who did not find much playing time last season an opportunity to showcase what they have to offer. Quarterback Tanner Tausch and defensive end Cooper Washington will be key players to keep an eye on.
