Bringin' Home The Bacon

Bringin' Home The Bacon

Playing for a TAPPS schools can sometimes lead to flying a bit under the radar. The stereotype usually doubts the level of competition. That definitely wasn't the problem for this OLB who played for the TAPPS D1 State Runner-up.

Trinity Christian High School advanced to the TAPPS D1 State Championship where they came up short against Nolan Catholic, 48-45. A big reason for their success on the defensive side of the ball was in part to the play of Brock Bacon.

Bacon is a 6'3" 225lb outside linebacker who is starting to see more interest on the recruiting trail. He currently holds offers from UTEP, Cornell and Penn. Harvard, Navy, Air Force and UTSA have shown interest too.

The UTSA coaching staff stopped by earlier this spring and liked what they saw in Brock. So much so, that head coach Larry Coker made time to talk to him during the spring evaluation period. He advised him they want to see him in some game action this fall and that the staff would be in touch.

Last season for the Trojans he posted 62 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 2 INT's, one went for a pick six and 2 forced fumbles from his OLB spot. At the next level, Bacon could project to move down to defensive end, but at this point he's just taking it one step at a time to see what other options come his way.

Brock was not able to make it to either UTSA satellite camp, but he remains strongly interested in the 'Runners and is waiting for contact to pickup after the quiet period ends on July 31.
