San Antonio is a college football town
I know most are fans of either the Longhorns or Aggies but we are lucky in San Antonio with the college football that we have here.
This week on The Blitz we have had the head coaches of all the local teams. UTSA rightfully so gets the bulk of the attention with Jeff Traylor at the helm and coming off a championship season.
Both UIW and Trinity are also coming off championship seasons and expect to do great things in 2022.
For Trinity, ranked No. 9 in the country, they could be hosting a Top 10 matchup on September 10th against Wheaton if both teams open this season this weekend with wins.
Jerheme Urban is entering his 9th season as head coach at Trinity. He is Trinity. He played at Trinity. He played in the NFL, played in two Super Bowls. He is a perfect example that you can live your NFL dreams at a D3 school. More importantly, he is a great human.
Over at UIW, GJ Kinne, at 33, is a first time head coach but his resume speaks for itself. When Eric Morris left for Washington State, I was curious to see who Richard Duran would hire. He got a good one. Kinne is the son of a coach – and played for Traylor at Gilmer High School. He made it to the NFL. He has also been a part of some great coaching staffs – I cannot wait to see what the Cardinals offense looks like under Kinne.
Up the road in San Marcos, Jake Spavital has a chance to finally put it all together this year. Spav has used the transfer portal to his advantage and has a ton of experience on the roster – and at quarterback. Spav may have finally found the right quarterback for his offense and the Bobcats.
The Texas State non-conference schedule is brutal – opening at Nevada this weekend and a trip to Baylor in a couple of weeks, but they should be much better in the improved Sunbelt.
We have some great local college football here – led by some great coaches. Go support them all.
