Could the Frogs get Lewis, Turpin, and Schlottman back in time for the key matchup in Morgantown? It looks possible. GP is also making some moves in practice to put the pressure on his starters.
The return of Lewis could mean competition for Jeff Gladney, who took his spot in spring training. But Gladney missed a game with a foot injury and has been spotty since his return. Tuesday, Patterson said Gladney worked with the scout team.
“We’ve got to get Jeff to play better,” Patterson said. “We’re going to find somebody who wants to practice. You can’t play well on Saturday if you don’t practice well.”
This young man’s story is inspiring in itself, but it’s what he’s doing with his platform that is truly special.
However, S.P.A.R.K doesn’t just affect the youth outside of TCU. He said seeing his teammates and other students on campus develop on campus as leaders is a tremendous joy.
“I feel like I have an important piece to share with the kids, but I’m always impressed with what my teammates have to say,” Moore said.
Josh Carraway leads a group that is finally starting to get consistent pressure on opposing QBs, something he showcased in the fourth quarter against Kansas last weekend.
“Finally we were able to get a pass rush when they went into more of a dropback mode at the end of the ballgame,” he said. “One of the hard things about getting a pass rush right now, unless you’re just bringing pressure all the time, is you can’t get there. So you better substitute, because you’re kids are going to be tired. There’s some good skill players in the league, and there’s some good quarterbacks.”
Carraway was the difference in the fourth quarter for TCU, as they narrowly escaped Lawrence with a win.
The Big 12 Conference has announced TCU defensive end Josh Carraway as its defensive player of the week for his efforts in Saturday's win at Kansas.
All three of Carraway's sacks came in the fourth quarter, including back-to-back snaps on Kansas' final drive. The three sacks were the most by a Horned Frog in a game dating back to Devonte Fields in 2012 against Grambling State.
