Former High School All-American headed to TJC

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A major announcement was made today at the annual Southwest Junior College Football Conference media day.

TJC head coach Danny Palmer announced that former Sulphur Springs All-American quarterback Tyrik Rollison will play for the Apaches this fall.

Rollison, who won a state title with the Wildcats in 2008, went to Auburn out of high school, but was suspended for a violation of team rules before transferring to Sam Houston.

He never played for the Bearkats after breaking his wrist.

Now he is back in East Texas.

"We are a team that believes in second chances," said Palmer, "Our league believes in it, and Tyrik knows what he expect from him and that he will have to adhere to our policies."

Rollison was a Parade All-American in 2008 and considered one of the top quarterbacks in all of the country.

Palmer says despite his accolades, he will still have to battle with signees Ryan Black from Jacksonville and Randy Price from Waco for playing time behind center.
