Texas College Adds Big 12 QB To Roster

Texas College announced today Kanas State quarterback Allen Webb has transferred to Tyler.  The Denver, Colorado native has one year of eligibility remaining and has decided to move to Texas College to finish his college playing career.

Webb, who originally went to Inidana University out of high school before transferring to K-State, went 4-1 last year as a starter for the Wildcats.  He threw for 850 yards and nine touchdowns in his five starts and was instrumental in a come-from-behind win against the University of Missouri the last week of the season.  In that game, Webb rallied his troops from two touchdowns down in the third quarter to a 36-28 victory.  Throughout his tenure at Kansas State, Webb was 111 of 199 for 1371 yards and 12 TD's in 10 starts. 

"I think he brings a lot to our program because he has had many experiences that a lot of our kids haven't," said Steers head coach Jay Brown.  "We hope those experiences will translate to success at our level.  When you are able to land a player of Allen's caliber it can improve the entire program."

The Steers look to continue moving the program in the right direction after last year's Central States Football League co-championship.  They still face the possibility of landing Texas Longhorns running back Ramonce Taylor, who announced this week he was leaving Austin.

"We are optimistic about this season," Brown said.  "We think it can be a really good year for our program and the school."
