Brownsboro’s Tamrick Pace Offered By SFA
It's been quite the last few days for Brownsboro senior Tamrick Pace.
On Friday night, he threw a game-winning touchdown pass with 10 seconds remaining to keep his team unbeaten in district. And on Tuesday, he celebrated his 18th birthday, and picked up his second Division I offer.
Stephen F. Austin offered the Bears standout, Pace announced via Twitter on Tuesday night.
Pace (6-1, 193) previously picked up an offer from fellow FCS and Southland Conference member Northwestern State, and according to the recruiting service Scout.com, has the interest of several regional FBS programs.
A converted wide receiver, Pace is playing quarterback this season for the first time in his varsity career. And it's been paying big dividends.
In last week's win 42-36 win over Henderson, he ran for 250 yards and three touchdowns, and was 4-of-6 for 57 yards and two touchdowns passing, including the 2-yard, game-winner to Clayton Sims.
The individual performance was instrumental in the Bears' rallying from a 19-0 first half-deficit and 36-27 hole late in the second half.
For the season, Pace has carried the ball 137 times for 1,193 yards and 11 touchdowns, and added 396 yards and eight scores through the air for Brownsboro (4-3, 2-0 in District 9-4A Division I), which is 2-0 in league play for the first time since 2012.
Pace and his Brownsboro teammates face perennial state power Carthage (4-3, 1-1) on the road Friday night.
SFA, conveniently located in the East Texas town of Nacogdoches, began this season 0-5, but has won its last two games under second-year coach Clint Conque.
Pace's offer list figures to grow in the near future, and he'll have until Feb. 3, 2016, to make things official on National Signing Day.
