BGC Preview 2021: Sam Houston Hurricanes

Young squad benefitting from true offseason

KSAT 12's Big Game Coverage hits the practice field to catch up with the Sam Houston Hurricanes, as they prepare for the 2021 high school football season.

SAN ANTONIO – Unlike last year, the Sam Houston football team is going through a real offseason.

The Hurricanes finished the COVID-shortened 2020 campaign with a 3-2 record in District 13-5A Division I. That five-game schedule was tough for head coach Quincy Stewart and his players because he was new to the San Antonio area and he was installing a new system. Nine starters return from that squad, and they’re all benefitting from a full fall camp.

The Hurricanes open their 2021 season on Thursday, Aug. 26 against Fredericksburg. Kickoff at Alamo Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
