Tyler Lee Quarterback Zach Hall Picks Up Offer From Stephen F. Austin
Zach Hall's offer list continues to grow down the stretch.
The 2015 ETSN.fm Preseason Super Team quarterback and Tyler Lee star earned a college football scholarship opportunity Thursday from Stephen F. Austin. Hall confirmed the news.
Stephen F. Austin joins Southland Conference rival Northwestern State in the chase. Baylor, Missouri and Texas Tech also have reached out to the dual-threat signal caller.
Hall's senior season was shortened by a minor knee injury sustained in the third game of the campaign. He missed three full games recovering, but he still put up 1,143 passing yards and 11 touchdowns to one interception while also running for more than 600 yards in just seven games played.
As a junior, Hall (5-11, 170) was responsible for more than 3,000 total yards and helped Lee to its first and only postseason appearance during his four years at the school.
The Lumberjacks football program, based in Nacogdoches, has been a landing spot for East Texas players for decades.
Senior Brownsboro athlete Tamrick Pace is Stephen F. Austin's latest local commitment. He made his call on Dec. 2.
Head coach Clint Conque wrapped up his second season with Stephen F. Austin in November. The team finished its 2015 season with a 4-7 record, but it did seem to turn a corner midway through the schedule with four victories in its final six games.
Four of the squad's six losses to FCS opponents came by one possession. A fifth loss was to TCU in Fort Worth.
After a successful 14 seasons guiding the Central Arkansas program, Conque helped the Lumberjacks to a Division I First Round playoff appearance last season. He previously took Central Arkansas to the FCS playoffs twice in addition to two Division II playoff appearances before his former program made the jump to the FCS.
Stephen F. Austin most recently sent running back Gus Johnson, a former Gilmer star, to the NFL. Johnson was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Oakland Raiders in the spring and released before finding a home on the Dallas Cowboys’ active roster through the preseason. He is presently on the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad.
Hall, like all senior high school football players, will become eligible to sign with any program that offers him on Feb. 3.
