Baylor football to honor seniors against Iowa State

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor football will host its final home game Nov 18 against Iowa State. The athletic department will honor all senior players during a pregame ceremony.

Tuesday, at his weekly press conference, head coach Matt Rhule acknowledged how valuable the group has been to this team.

"There are a bunch of wonderful young men in this program. I think it starts with that senior class. I think the thing I can say is that so many of them had already graduated, and they could’ve gone somewhere else. They could’ve restarted their careers, but they chose to finish them here."

One of the biggest helpers from that senior class? Taylor Young. A young man who recently moved to middle linebacker after the team lost their starter at that position.

"Not even was he just considering it, but he was gone. He wouldn’t even come over and talk to us. We said to him ‘Hey, we’re not going to beg you to come, but we want you to see what we think we could do for you and how playing in this defense could help you’. I think he mom and dad were a strong part of that; they wanted him here," Coach Rhule said.

Rhule went on to confirm freshman wideout Gavin Holmes tore his ACL in last Saturday's contest against Texas Tech. The team says they could redshirt Holmes next season, giving him an extra year of eligibility, depending on his recovery.

Baylor's offense will be lead by Charlie Brewer Saturday. The freshman signal caller will make his third start for the Green and Gold after breaking a group of records against the Red Raider defense.

Kickoff for the Iowa State game is Nov 18 at 1:30 inside McLane Stadium.
