Sportklub Rapid – vor lösbaren Problemen

Wien, AT – Der Sportklub Rapid geriet zu Ende der letzten Saison in den Strudel zwischen Scylla und Charybdis, auf den er schon zwei Spielsaisonen lang unaufhaltsam zutrieb.

TEXAS Longhorns

2011 College Football Recruiting Class


Texas suffered an unusual poor season last year, finishing 5-7, as the offense struggled under first year QB Garrett Gilbert. Despite the poor showing of last season, the Longhorns have put together a top 5 recruiting class for 2011.
Head coach Mack Brown and his staff worked hard this off-season to rectify last season’s poor performance. RB Malcolm Brown is the top recruit with a five-star rating from Rivals.com. Brown rushed for over 4,700 yards in his last two seasons at Steele High School.
In all, Texas signed 22 players on National Signing Day, 16 have a four- or five-star rating from the recruiting experts. Texas recruited five defensive backs and five offensive linemen to lead the positions signed.
Brown was the biggest signing for a team that has struggled running the ball for the last few seasons. Brown should see immediate playing time and help Texas get back to their winning ways.
