Don’t be confused, Delton has earned this job. Now, he will have to work to keep it.
“I feel like I’ve been practicing very well,” Delton said. “I feel like we’ve created an identity throughout camp. It’s going to carry over to the season. I’m excited to get to this first ballgame and get going.”
The Hays, Kansas, native completed 56.1 percent of his passes for 1,202 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions at Kansas State. The dual-threat quarterback added 213 rushes for 768 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground.
Delton was often used as a running quarterback in Bill Snyder’s single-wing rushing offense. However, TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie is an air raid protege. Delton will be asked to throw the ball much more consistently. However, he thinks the new system will help his production.
We will see Max with the ones in the season opener.
Former Lewis Central star quarterback Max Duggan will play Saturday as a true freshman in TCU’s season opener when the Horned Frogs play host to Arkansas Pine-Bluff.
TCU coach Gary Patterson said in a news conference Tuesday that Duggan will see action in the first quarter, and Kansas State graduate transfer Alex Delton would start the game.
This is a great story on an outstanding family. They’re going to be BUSY this fall.
Meanwhile, Byron Nelson will play every Tuesday and Friday nights. The Bobcats are coming off a tournament title in back-to-back weeks. Charitie was named to the all-tournament team both times, including MVP at the Northwest ISD Classic.
TCU will play on Saturdays, except the season finale on Nov. 29 against West Virginia. The Horned Frogs will begin the season on Aug. 31 at home vs. Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
“I think they get the best of both qualities in us. I was big and strong and mom was explosive,” Curtis said. “It’s hard to put into words the pride you have for your children. To see them do what they love at a very high level, it’s a blessing.”
Okay Joel, we see you. He’s got the Frogs in the top 20.
FOX Sports college football analyst Joel Klatt released his preseason top 25 poll on Saturday afternoon. It’s a bold one.
Klatt is extremely high on Nebraska, ranking the Huskers at No. 13 heading into the season, despite the fact that Scott Frost’s team is coming off a 4-8 season.
