The Trinity University Tigers have been
ranked No. 18 in the nation by the first American Football Coaches
Association Division III poll of the season.
Trinity (3-0, 1-0 Southern Collegiate
Athletic Conference), led by head coach Steve Mohr, opened its
conference campaign last Saturday with a 40-19 victory over the Rhodes
College Lynx at Memphis, Tenn.
Sophomore quarterback Patrick
Dickinson of San Antonio (Central Catholic) completed 18 of 22 passes
for 265 yards and three touchdowns in the win. First-year kicker Garrett
Biel of Clayton, Calif. (De Lasalles), booted a school-record four field
Tyler Barrett, a sophomore defensive
back of Spring, Texas (Oak Ridge), produced three tackles, a fumble
recovery and one interception.
The staunch Tiger defense caused six
turnovers, the most since Trinity’s 35-10 victory over Redlands in 2006.
In addition to an interception, the Tigers recovered all five of Rhodes’
Trinity travels to Jackson, Miss.,
for a Saturday game with the defending SCAC champion Millsaps College
Majors (2-1, 1-0 SCAC). Kickoff is at 1 p.m. at Harper Davis Field.
Head Coach Steve Mohr, in his 20th
season with the Tigers,
has led the team to a 3-0 start to the season
