Tech Upgrading Practice Fields
Tech AD Kirby Hocutt announced that Tech's two outdoor practice fields will get a makeover. Tech just finished its new Sports Performance Center which features a new indoor practice facility, replacing the old bubble. Tech's also remodeled their locker rooms to keep up with the Joneses.
The two fields will each feature different turfs, one field turf, and the other grass. But Tech will switch the configuration so that the field turf practice field is located closer to the Sports Performance Center to limit wear and tear on the grass field.
Jim Senter Say Upgrades to the Sun Bowl are coming.
New UTEP AD Jim Senter certainly seems to have hit the ground running in his new gig. Senter's been running around UTEP meeting with businesses and donors and the local media as well. He met with the Prospector Sports Weekly Podcast this week where he announced that improvements to the Sun Bowl are in coming.
"We’ll be announcing some things in March or April, where we’re going to be doing some enhancement on that. It will make all fans excited." Senter also mentioned that facilities have to be on the forefront at all times. "Any day you aren’t working on facilities, you’re going behind because your competitors are."
UTEP's facilities have been among the best in the WAC and CUSA, but they're due for a touchup. The Sun Bowl has one of the most picturesque vistas in college football but could do with some new amenities.

Former Boerne QB Set to Transfer
Quinten Dormady, the former Boerne Greyhound, announced that he's transferring from the University of Tennessee. Dormady, a junior in 2017, will seek a graduate transfer opportunity after he was benched in favor of freshman Jarrett Guarantano. Dormady then underwent season-ending shoulder surgery.
Dormady might be coming back home to Texas, and he should have a number of schools vying for his services. Dormady was a four-star pocket quarterback out of high school, he completed 55% of his passes this season and never found consistency running the Vol's offense. We'll keep an eye to see where this Texan lands.
