Bowie's McCoy Signs to Texas Lutheran

Posted: Updated:
Thursday in Bowie, Jackrabbit quarterback Garland McCoy signed to play under-center at the next level!

He'll play for the NCAA Div. III Bulldogs of Texas Lutheran University, in Seguin, Texas.

As a senior at Bowie, McCoy completed just over 60% of his passes for 1,575 yards and nine touchdowns, while rushing 194 times for 607 yards and a dozen more scores. He was named the second-team all-District 5-2A Div. I quarterback.

McCoy, who has been invited to play in the Oil Bowl this season, said he was excited to continue his career, calling it a "dream come true."

But he also was aware he'll need to keep honing his craft to succeed in college.

"I really need to focus on throwing the ball, a lot," McCoy said Thursday. "Repetition, repetition, and every ball needs to be a good ball. Getting my weight down, and trying to get the speed up, and just preparing for the next level."
