Former Copperas Cove Bulldog Tyrell Thompson was representing Tarleton State on Tuesday at Lone Star Conference Media Day.
Thompson is getting set to embark on his senior season after spending time at Trinity Valley Community College, before arriving in Stephenville, Tyrell is grateful for his journey and the ability to play a game that he loves.
“Everyone wants to go to The University of Texas/ Big time schools, so I say humbling because it teaches you that no matter where you go football is football,” he said. “So if you don’t go to the big schools don’t get discouraged. I was there wanting to give up and stuff like that. Then I realized I could go some place and make a name for myself, and I feel like I’ve done that.”
Tarleton will open their season on August 30th hosting Delta State.
