Forth Worth, TX—The Texas sun cast its golden glow over the TCU campus as anticipation buzzed through the air. It was clear and sunny on this Saturday afternoon, the day of the TCU Spring Game, an event that marked the culmination of months of hard work and dedication for the Horned Frogs football team.

In the heart of Fort Worth, fans streamed into Amon G. Carter Stadium, their excitement palpable. Among them was Jack, a die-hard TCU supporter, who had been eagerly awaiting this day since the end of the previous season. With his purple and white jersey proudly donned, he made his way to his seat, ready to witness the unveiling of the team’s potential.

On the field, players warmed up, their determination evident in every stride. Among them was Cam Cook, the promising running back who had become the talk of the town with his impressive performances during some of spring practices. With his helmet on and his eyes focused, he exuded confidence as he led his teammates through their drills.

The Horned Frogs spent most of the scrimmage working on its red zone plays with a majority of the offensive drives starting inside the 25 or 15-yard line.

“I thought we had a really good spring, I feel like we’re ahead of where I thought we might be,” Dykes said. Especially defensively, I’m really pleased with the job our players and coaches have done. I thought they played aggressive and fast. I was really glad to see that, we ran out of guys a little bit at defensive tackle. I would have liked to go longer today, but we didn’t have the guys to do it.”

On the offense’s first drive, Cook set up the scoring drive with three tough carries that totaled about 18 yards. The next time the first-team offense took the field, Cook ripped off 25-yards for a touchdown run that similar to the one he had in an earlier scrimmage. Cook continued to dazzle the crowd with a number of nice open field moves and a hard running style that drew praise from his coach after the scrimmage.

But it wasn’t just the offense that shone that day. The defense, led by defensive back Avery Helm, stood firm, thwarting every attempt by the offense to gain ground. With his leadership and tenacity, Helm inspired her fellow defenders to push themselves to their limits, resulting in game-changing stops.

As fans made their way out of the stadium, a sense of optimism filled them. They now know with players like Jack Bech, Dylan Wright, Helm, and Cook leading the charge, the future of TCU football is brighter than ever.
