Hello, Frogs O’ War nation! We caught up with the TCU Horned Frogs’ starting left tackle Brandon Coleman to discuss the upcoming season. Coleman is listed as a preseason All-Big 12 offensive lineman by pretty much every preview magazine you can find out there. Pro Football Focus ranks Coleman as the 8th-best returning tackle in the FBS. Many people described last season as a Cinderella run, but Coleman discussed with me how the results achieved in 2022 are the expectations within the program, and that the Horned Frogs are ready to prove doubters wrong once again in 2023. Give the full interview a watch and enjoy!
