  Texas State running backs Calvin Hill (Redshirt sophomore; fourth year at Texas State) and Jahmyl Jeter (Redshirt junior; third year) combined to rush for more than 1,000 yards last season and nearly 2,000 yards over the last two years. The team's leading rushers return to power an experienced group thanks to two FBS transfers and a junior college transfer being added to the fold. Hill ran for a career-high 714 yards on 128 carries in 2021, which placed him in the Sun Belt's top-10. He also averaged 5.6 yards per carry and 59.5 rushing yards per game.

The Baytown, Texas native ended the year strong, running for a career-high 123 yards on 12 carries against Arkansas State in the victorious season finale. Although he is 5-7 and 185 pounds, Hill finished eighth in the Sun Belt in yards after contact (451) last season. He showed the ability for explosive plays with his 78-yard run against Arkansas State and 54-yard rushing touchdown at Coastal Carolina. He also had 22 rushes of 10 or more yards, which was seventh-best in the Sun Belt. Jeter led the team in rushing touchdowns with eight last year, and he finished the campaign with 384 yards on 91 carries. - San Marcos Record

  Heading into his first season at Texas State, junior quarterback Layne Hatcher went to work with one of the legendary families in football. Hatcher attended the Manning Passing Academy over the weekend, a four-day camp that's held annually at Nicholls State for football players between the ages of those entering the eighth grade and seniors-to-be in high school. Each year, around 40 college quarterbacks are invited to the camp to help coach alongside Archie, Cooper, Peyton, and Eli Manning. The Bobcat signal-caller was one of the few invited, joining Georgia's Stetson Bennett, Alabama's Bryce Young and Ohio State's CJ Stroud among others.

"You're part camp counselor," Hatcher said. "And then in the afternoons, you're working out with the Manning brothers and they're coaching you up and then you have some social events, networking stuff, meeting a lot of QB trainers that are across the country working out with the Mannings. You get to have kind of an all-around experience of coaching and working out and then meeting people and then having, like, just meetings about football and talking ball." The Little Rock, Ark. native went to the camp for the first time last year. He said he was a bit nervous, not knowing what to expect out of the experience. He mostly just listened, trying to soak everything in. This year, with a better understanding of the camp and who all would be there, Hatcher found himself enjoying everything a bit more. - San Marcos Record

  Head coach Jake Spavital has always kept a competitive quarterback room since taking over the Bobcats. In 2019, he brought in Gresch Jensen and Brady McBride to compete with Tyler Vitt and Jaylen Gipson for the starting job - though, McBride was deemed ineligible to play due to transfer rules at the time. In 2021, Spavital brought in North Carolina State transfer Ty Evans to compete with Vitt and McBride. With Vitt declining to use his extra "COVID year" of eligibility, Spavital went searching for another signal-caller who could turn up the heat in the position group.

Layne Hatcher announced on Dec. 1 he would enter the transfer portal for a second time. The Little Rock, Ark., native spent his first college season at Alabama in 2018, redshirting on a team that reached the national championship and featured a trio of future NFL starting quarterbacks in Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones. He returned to his home state the next season, transferring to Arkansas State. Now, three years later, he's on the move again. Mitchell Gladstone of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported on Sunday that Hatcher is heading to Texas State. - San Marcos Record
