Steers Take To the Field in Purple & Gold Game

Despite the chill in the air the past few days, it is springtime and that always means spring games.

Monday the Texas College Steers took to the field in their purple and gold game.

Last season, the steers went 4-7 and for the first time in two seasons they did not win their league championship. They hope to strengthen their league games by playing tough division one and division two schools in non-conference matchups.

"It's just a case where we give our guys a little more exposure," Coach Jay Brown said. "Of course we have some guys that the NFL and the professional leagues are looking at. So, it gives them the chance to see them against some stronger competition and help those guys chances. It also prepares us for a tough conference schedule."

Texas College will open the season August 30 against Mississippi Valley State.

    One search on twitter of the hashtag "bEASTtexas", and you will be scrolling for days. The amount of talent that comes from this region is mind blowing. It is even crazier to see around 10 Major League and minor league baseball guys working out together in one room.
