After Lake Travis senior quarterback and University of Texas at Austin commit Hudson Card suffered a foot injury that cost him most of the 2019 Texas high school football season, junior quarterback Nate Yarnell was ready to step in. With Card's injury coming in October, Yarnell had just a few weeks to prepare for the playoffs. When asked about "the transition", Yarnell credits the veteran quarterback by saying "Hudson made [it] easy."
The playoffs bring a lot of pressure, but Yarnell is ready and confident in his team.
VYPE editor Thomas Bingham, Hill Country Indoor sports director Evan Beyer and "Producer Josh" Waclawczyk continue their 2019-2020 sports coverage and share this week's "From The Bench" interview with Regents School of Austin quarterback and college football recruit Wilson Long during the 16th Locker Talk Austin/San Antonio episode.
The hosts also discuss the area football teams that qualified for this weekend's UIL 11-Man regional finals, TAPPS 11-Man state championship games and TAPPS Six-Man state championship games, recap the regional semifinal round of the UIL football playoffs and participate in their weekly pick 'em.
Correction: On the Pick 'Em graphic, last week's records for Thomas and Evan should've been 4-2 and 3-2 respectively.
