The Beacon - October 2017 - Homecoming Edition

Texas College celebrated homecoming with a victory on the gridiron Saturday, October 7, 2017. While the Steers were taking care of business on the field, alumni reveled in their return, media flocked to the sidelines, and Miss Texas College and her court greeted the stadium as they were presented by Dr. Dwight J. Fennell and First Lady Angelia Fennell. Not to mention, the Marching Stampede Band put on a show that won’t soon be forgotten. The Homecoming game also served as a “Pink Out” game for Breast Cancer Awareness month. The support was obvious when players broke out their pink tape, the Band in pink headbands, cheerleaders adorned with pink bows, and a sea of pink t-shirts filled the stands. Quarterback Sean Stell came up with key passes and the Steers’ defense maintained stellar play as Texas College gave Coach Charles Moss his first collegiate win, a 21-11 victory over Texas Wesleyan on a Saturday night at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium. The Steers jumped out to a 21-3 first-half lead thanks to three TD passes from Stell. The senior from Fresno, California, threw touchdown passes to Ronald Harris (65 yards), Dyamond Woods (10) and Reginald Hardison (22). Stell threw for 180 yards, completing five passes for an average of 36 yards per
