First of all, I’d like to apologize for not previewing this week’s game. I had a busy week and then had to fight a headache all day Saturday. But anyways, enough of the excuses, I decided to make it up to all of my loyal readers with a ridiculously long recap of the Southern Utah game, as well as a recap of some news from the past week.
Make sure to follow @RowdyReport on twitter and check out the Rowdyville forums (you can find me under the username DarrellEW), as I’m pretty active on both platforms and I’ll usually post and discuss the latest news on either of those before it makes it on a post here.

LB Drew Douglas (Fr-HS)
Douglas is out for the season with a shoulder injury and will be using his redshirt year to recover. With only two linebackers needed for the 4-2-5 and a decent amount of depth at the position, it’s not a huge loss for UTSA, and he likely would have been redshirted regardless.

For the past two seasons he played collegiate football in Canada as a member of the St. Francis Xavier X-Men football team. He lead the X-Men in rushing last season with 289 yards on 77 carries, while playing in all eight of the team’s games.
