TCU Coach Sees Beauty in the Scars in Recovery From Brain Tumor Removal | NBC 5

If you don’t know Coach Pebley’s story, you should hear it.

“I was terrified of what a scar was going to look like,” Pebley said. “Half my hair was gone on this side. I was humbled at how vain I was about those things. I was extremely swollen and bruised on the side of my face as well. I had to come to terms with extending grace to myself, allowing myself to heal, and honoring the journey I had gone through and the bravery that I was filled up with by so many other people who encouraged me and prayed for me.”

TCU football lands one of the top OT tackles in 2021 class | Fort Worth Star Telegram

TCU got a huge commit when Anthony Belton pledged to the Frogs.

Belton is regarded as a three-star prospect by 247Sports, and also had interest from schools such as South Carolina, Houston, Florida Atlantic and East Carolina.

Belton is the seventh commit for TCU’s 2021 class, joining QBs Trent Battle and Alexander Honig; DEs Landyn Watson and Chris Murray; WR Chase Jackson; and OL Noah Bolticoff.

Cowboys’ busy day includes adding TCU’s Olonilua to practice squad, acquiring WR Turner | Fort Worth Star Telegram

The Cowboys added Sewo to a pretty stacked practice squad, after impressing in camp.

Olonilua joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, but didn’t make the final 53-man roster. But he’s a promising prospect who has the ability to play fullback and will continue that transition

Interesting thoughts from a rival perspective.

I think there are bright spots for this team, I just think they are not at key positions such as the quarterback position. Your receivers can be great but if your quarterback is not getting it done, it will not matter. Your running backs can be great but if they know you will run more than pass, your runs become less impactful. Your defense can be strong but if your offense can not score, it won’t help. I am not saying TCU will have an awful season but I believe a 6-4 season would be the absolute best for this team in 2020.
