SAN MARCOS, Texas - Texas State football held its Football Media Day at Bobcat Stadium on Sunday where they talked about rebounding from their 2-10 record last season.

Head coach Everett Withers, entering his second season at Texas State, said he feels better about the 2017 season.

“These kids have all been fun to be around and it’s been a breath of fresh air,” Withers said. “Opposed to 18 months ago, I didn’t feel the buy-in, totally, from the roster. Now we’ve got to go get better as a football team. Now we can take culture and say okay, we are building that.”
