 Tahj Brooks, Texas Tech, Player News

  09/12/21 - RB Tahj BrooksSo/2024, Texas Tech, 5-09, 220 (DS#58 RB) + More +

  Tahj Brooks ran for two touchdowns in the third quarter, including a 67-yarder for the lead, and Texas Tech held on to beat lower-division Stephen F. Austin 28-22 on Saturday night. The Red Raiders (2-0) made a stand in the final two minutes, forcing a turnover on downs after the FCS Lumberjacks had a first down inside the Texas Tech 10-yard line. Trae Self's fourth-down pass into the end zone was incomplete. Texas Tech defensive tackle Jaylon Hutchings came up huge with a tackle for loss and a sack on consecutive plays before a QB pressure of Self on the final play for SFA (1-1).

After Brooks' long scoring run, Xavier White broke free for 52 yards on a 97-yard drive that ended with a short TD run. "It wasn't clean on offense, and I'll take the blame on that," Texas Tech coach Matt Wells said. "In a game where we didn't play real crisp on offense, we fought at the end. We popped a couple of runs in the third quarter where we fit it up well." Leading 21-13, Texas Tech went for it on fourth down on the final play of the third quarter, and Tyler Shough fumbled on a sack. The ball ended up 39 yards behind the line of scrimmage, and SFA scored but couldn't convert the 2-point try, settling for a 21-19 deficit. The Red Raiders pushed their lead to 28-19 on a White's 4-yard touchdown run, which was set up by Erik Ezukanma's 55-yard catch-and-run on third-and-8. - Texas Tech/AP College Football

  04/19/21 - RB Tahj BrooksSo/2024, Texas Tech, 5-09, 220 (DS#58 RB) + More +

  Texas Tech running back Tahj Brooks (28) will be trying to expand his role after he rushed for 255 yards last season as a true freshman. For most of the 2020 football season, Texas Tech's running game was a group effort, even if SaRodorick Thompson was the leader of the pack. Down the stretch against West Virginia, though, position coach DeAndre Smith's list of available scholarship running backs dwindled to one: Tahj Brooks. During a true freshman season in which Brooks rushed for 255 yards and four touchdowns, no moment was more pressure-packed than when Brooks had to go in against WVU - and not come out. From the last minute of the third quarter through the end of the game, Brooks carried 11 times, helping Tech grind out a 34-27 homecoming victory. "Coach (Smith) put me in and he was like, 'You know what to do. I coached you hard enough to go ball,' " Brooks recounted Thursday. "He put me in those situations, and I came out successful. "What we go through every day in practice, it's nothing different. It just transferred to the game. Coach Smith knows he coaches me hard, so he knows what I'm capable of doing." - Lubbock Avalanche Journal
