West Texas A&M football brings on seven local stars for national signing day
CANYON, Texas (KFDA) – “We started in our backyard, and I believe we have some very good West Texas players,….”
Under the new leadership of head coach Josh Lynn, the West Texas A&M football program has recruited a strong recruiting class for National Signing Day, including seven local stars from the Texas Panhandle.
From Palo Duro High School, linebacker Kameron Brown and defensive linemen Triston Moore and Parrion Ware. Out of Canyon High School are linebacker Javin Cash and quarterback Derrek Clements. Panhandle High School quarterback Landyn Hack will also join the Buffs roster this fall. Finally, fresh out of Amarillo High School, Connor Marricle is an offensive lineman.
Coach Josh Lynn and his coaching staff swung into action on Jan. 1, and just a month later they’ve already signed 32 new players to the roster, including 30 from Texas.
He knows how important it is to sign local players to create a strong base for this team.
“When you’re looking at transforming a football program and when you’re looking at what you want to do in the future as a football program, you have to have a foundation,” coach Lynn said. “You have to have guys there, within 200 miles. I believe these young men are going to be here, they’re going to love being here. They are going to bring people to the games. These are guys that you know their work ethic, you know their parents, and these are going to be guys that walk into that locker room and walk in there and lead.
He says the two main points for him and his coaching staff are that they need to grow in every position and get older.
“We have over 90 players on our roster who are not seniors so we have to get older. Bigger and older is now the goal as we go forward,” said Coach Lynn.
Coach Lynn will be looking to add more players in the coming weeks with more favorite signings and extras.
