LEWISVILLE -- Texas Football magazine announced its 2020 Preseason All-Texas Small College team on Wednesday. The team brings together 26 student-athletes from 15 in-state institutions across the state.

“I am truly honored to have the opportunity to cover the sport I love and bring recognition to the small college schools, fan bases and players I have followed for many years,” said TexasFootball.com small college contributor Cory Hogue. “That does not make selecting this team easy.”

Sam Houston State led the state with four selections, while Mary Hardin-Baylor trailed close behind with three. Houston Baptist, Hardin-Simmons, West Texas A&M, Texas A&M-Commerce, Trinity and Tarleton State round out the list of schools with multiple selections. 

To qualify, a player must participate at a four-year institution in Texas that plays below the FBS level. Selections came from five conferences across FCS, Division-II, Division-III, along with transitioning FCS independent Tarleton State. 

“We try to leave no stone unturned in search of the state’s best small college players,” said TexasFootball.com college football insider Shehan Jeyarajah. “Between the talented returners and big-time Texas high school products getting ready for their shot, the state is in good hands.”

Please note: Selections are separated into schools at the bottom of the release.
