Max Duggan and Kee’Yon Stewart are showing that freshmen can contribute right out of the gate. And their teammates are noticing.
“Kee’yon, besides giving up that big play, I thought he played really poised and confident for his first game,” senior safety Vernon Scott said afterward. “I really liked that he played confident. I know he’s only going to get better.
“I know his confidence is going to raise. I know it’s his first game. He’s a freshman. He’s nervous out there, but he impressed me. He’s pretty confident. I told him, ‘You’re going to mess up, but just go full speed.’”
The Frogs are 4-1 after a dominant 4-0 win over Little Rock.
TCU dominated play from the opening touch in the second half, outshooting Little Rock 15-1 in the half. Two goals in a span of a minute put the game out of reach. Messiah Bright struck first in the 63rdminute catching up with a Grace Collins feed and firing in the second goal of the game from the top of the 18. Collins’ hard work was rewarded a minute later as Ryan found her all alone in the middle of the 18. She found the top corner of the goal for her first career tally.
