After devoting his summer to improving as a passer, Tyrone Swoopes (Whitewright, Texas/Whitewright) didn’t mind reminding people he can run in his season opener on Friday.

The four-star Texas quarterback commit rushed for 305 yards with touchdowns from 71, 63 and 43 yards and also passed for 175 yards and two touchdowns in Whitewright’s 55-47 opening loss to Nocona.

The next day, Swoopes -- who is No. 100 in the ESPN 150 -- made his way down to Austin to take in the Longhorns’ win over Wyoming. Here’s what Texas’ future signal-caller had to say about his weekend.
