The 2017 edition of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine has hit the newsstands and includes features on a pair of former Brenham Cubs.
In the College Football section, readers will find articles on Cub alums, Courtland Sutton and Tyler Watts.
Sutton, a junior wide receiver at SMU, is featured on page 126, in the Mustangs’ preview.
Sutton made the decision to stay at SMU, rather than enter the NFL draft. The article describes Sutton (6’4”, 215) as “…the best non-Power Five—and perhaps, the best overall—wide receiver in the country.”
In the past two seasons with the Ponies, Sutton has caught 125 passes for 2108 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Watts is entering his junior season with the Bobcats. In 2016 he started 11 of the team’s 12 games at wide receiver.
The Brenham-native (5’8”, 165) led the team with 43 receptions for a total of 364 yards and a touchdown.
In the feature, on page 169, Coach Everett Withers calls Watts, “embodies every intangible required of a successful player.’
The story describes how Watts, a non-scholarship walk-on, eventually earned his scholarship and became a starter for the Bobcats.
