TCU’s ‘strong man’ has weight training in his genes | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Jaelan Austin has been setting TCU weight lifting records for receivers, and he gives the credit to his dad.

The South Grand Prairie alumnus won TCU’s strong man award this spring after setting weight-lifting records by a TCU receiver.

Austin did a 780 pound squat, a 450 pound bench and a 420 clean lift to win the title.

Reagor didn’t record a catch against Texas in 2017, but that doesn’t mean the Longhorns are writing him off in 2018.

If the college football world didn’t know who Jalen Reagor was before, that changed during the final quarter of his freshman season. The TCU wide receiver put everyone on notice with a 93-yard touchdown in the Alamo Bowl. He covered the length of the field in less than 10 seconds.

TCU men’s basketball plays eight of 14 nonconference games at home | Fort Worth Star Telegram

The Frogs have a decent non-conference schedule, but they could get dinged for not having many “true” road games again this season. However, the schedule set up may alleviate some of those critiques.

Six of the Horned Frogs’ last eight nonconference games will be on the road, including four games at the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu from Dec. 22-28.
