Texas A&M Football Veteran DB Makes Huge Play
It may be early here, but we have guys making plays all over the place for Texas A&M football. First Henderson comes out and is absolutely dealing from the very first play both through the air and on the ground, and now we’ve got the Aggie defense playing with their hair on fire. Kyle is making a difference, too—the Bulldogs have already committed three false start penalties in the face of the wall of sound they’re facing.
The Aggies looked to have already created a turnover earlier in the drive for the Bulldogs, as the ball squirted free from the grasp of a Mississippi State receiver and into the hands of Taurean York, but the referees—without reviewing, of course!—ruled the runner’s knee to have already touched the ground. A couple of false starts later, however, the Aggie defense had put the Bulldogs in an obvious passing situation, which meant heavy pressure. Here’s what that heavy pressure brought:
I can’t say enough how much I love this for Deuce. This is a guy who has been super patient at a corner position where he has seen younger guys move past him on the depth chart. He doesn’t have the prototypical size for the position, and he has struggled at times because of that, but he has all the skills necessary to play at a high level. He has been really coming into his own this year since filling in for Josh DeBerry in the Tennessee game, and was sorely missed last week against Ole Miss. He’s been solid both in coverage and run support, and has been a sure tackler when having to confront the task. Here’s hoping he continues his breakout at the end of this season and emerges as a solid option opposite Chappell.
