Trey Lindsay can testify recruiting usually takes off with just one school willing to break the ice.

Northwestern State extended the senior Beckville quarterback a college football scholarship opportunity Thursday morning and did so about 15 hours after Houston Baptist became the first school in the mix. Both schools play in the Southland Conference within the FCS subset of NCAA Division I schools.

Lindsay (6-2, 165) is a multi-sport star at Beckville with high achievements in both football and baseball. He also plays as a guard on the school’s basketball team.

Beckville football jumped from Class 2A Division I to Class 3A Division II for Lindsay’s junior season. He led the team to a 6-4 record, but it missed the postseason on district tiebreakers.

As a sophomore, Lindsay took Beckville to the regional semifinal round of the 2A Division I postseason.

Beckville baseball went to the Class 2A state tournament with Lindsay in 2016 and reached the regional championship round its first season as a member of Class 3A. The athlete played both seasons as a pitcher and infielder.

Northwestern State, the Demons, floundered to a 1-10 record last season and did not win a Southland game. Fortunately, head coach Jay Thomas kept his job to provide continuity.

Thomas has a 17-29 overall record with the Demons program. Two seasons of 6-6 ball are tied for his best season-by-season record.

The Demons have viewed the East Texas region favorably for years, but they failed to gain local signatures in the past recruiting cycle. Five older players from the area will be on 2017 roster nevertheless.

Lindsay will become eligible to sign with any NCAA Division I program that offers him in December.
