YesIBall Catches Up With Houston Cougars Baller Trevon Stewart

YesIBall had the opppurtunity to catch up with Junior Safety Trevon Stewart of the Houston Cougars football team about their first practice. Stewart is a valuable player for the Coogs as he’s returning from a season where he had six fumble recoveries and four Interceptions.

YesIBall: Dee Van here with Trevon Stewart, U of H DB. What’s up man? How’s everything going?

Trevon Stewart: Good man, great first day of practice.

YIB: I wanted to ask you about that. How would you rate this year’s first practice to last year’s? I noticed that everything looked smoother and yall looked more loose out there.

TS: It was smooth. You know we’ve got that chemistry now. We’ve been together for a year already and everybody’s back, the coaches are back, so we feel good about each other. We’ve all became closer and we had a great first day.

YIB: So you guys now have a few more teams to the conference this year. Is there a certain game that you have circled on the calendar?

TS: You know, we’re ready for all of them. We say that all of them are key games, but we’re ready to start our first game in the new stadium. We’re ready to pop that off that night against UTSA.

YIB: Speaking of the new stadium, how are you guys feeling about it?

TS: It’s great. Man, we went in there the other day and it’s nice. It’s top knotch.

YIB: Yeah, I’m looking forward to seeing it too. Have a good season and good luck with everything.

TS: Thanks, I appreciate it.

Football Is In The Air- Houston Coogs First Day Of Practice

The fresh smell of football was floating through the city of Houston on Saturday August 2 as the UH Cougars took to the practice field for the first time in the 2014 season.

The Cougars, who are picked to finish third in the American Conference preseason polls, will have a lot of key players back in the fold from their team that went 8-5 last season. As a matter of fact, the Coogs will have all but two significant players returning to their defense.

One of the things that stood out the most about the Cougars today in their first practice was that they look smoother and more crisp than they did at the beginning of last season. YesIball caught up with the ball hawking Safety Trevon Stewart, who had six fumble recoveries and four Interceptions last season, to discuss their first practice “It was smooth. You know we’ve got that chemistry now. We’ve been together for a year already and everybody’s back, the coaches are back, so we feel good about each other. We’ve all became closer and we had a great first day.”

They definitely look comfortable. Even though it was only the first day, you can see some type of swag stemming from every player that was rocking the red helmet on the field.

The Cougars are set to open the season in their brand new home, TDECU stadium, where they are set to hosts UTSA in a nationally televised game.
