The Texas Southern Tigers will kick-off the 2012 season on August 6th with their first practice at 7:45pm at Alexander Durley Field located on TSU’s campus. This will also be the first season where the Tigers play in their new home…the 22,000 seat BBVA Compass Stadium.
New Head Coach Darrell Asberry is excited about his latest challenge to kick-start a TSU football program that stalled last season with a 4-7 overall record. His plan is to fuse winning and excitement to create a football program that Texas Southern can be proud of. Asberry says if he can capture three CIAA Championships in five seasons at Shaw University, he can make champions at Texas Southern University.
The practices are open to the public. Come out and watch the TSU Tigers as they prepare for a successful 2012 season. The TSU Football media day is scheduled for August 18th at 1:00pm at the BBVA Compass Stadium. I will send more information on that event as we get closer to the date.
Thank you for supporting the Texas Southern Tigers football program and TSU Athletics. Go Tigers!
