Ezekiel Coss now hopes to bring some of the same magic that made him a legend at Cedar Ridge High to Texas State.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound freshman quarterback is patiently awaiting his chance after the Bobcats struggled to a 3-9 overall finish and just one win in the Sun Belt West Division this season.

At Texas State, Coss’ reputation precedes him. According to LMTonline, he passed for 2,208 yards and 27 touchdowns as a junior and as a senior once scored five touchdowns in three different ways in a playoff win.

Texas State can use all the help it can get after the team’s seasonlong struggles led to the recent firing of coach Everett Withers. Back on Nov. 28, the school announced that 33-year-old former West Virginia offensive coordinator Jake Spavital as his replacement.

The Bobcats dropped their last three games of the season by an average of almost 21 points, managing just one touchdown in each loss.
