AUSTIN, Texas -- Tyrone Swoopes has never seen players this good.

In his tiny hometown of Whitewright, Texas, he played with only one other Division I football player on his Class 2A team, a three-star tight end who signed with TCU. Swoopes’ go-to receiver the past two years was 5-foot-6 and 150 pounds.

These days, the Texas freshman quarterback finds himself surrounded by receivers bigger, backs faster and linemen tougher than any he’s played with. His career at Whitewright couldn’t have prepared him for these luxuries.
