MIDLOTHIAN, Texas — For the first time since 2008, the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) football team won its season opener, beating Westminster (MO), 30-17, on Sept. 5.

“I was very pleased with the effort from our guys,” first-year SAGU head coach Frank Tristan said. “Offensively, we had several explosive plays especially in the run game. With a very inexperienced offensive line, I didn’t anticipate that being the case.”

Offensively, five different running backs combined for 218 yards rushing on 40 carries for SAGU. CJ Collins was 19-of-29 passing for 195 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Andrez Brewster led the receivers with five catches for 84 yards.

Defensively, newcomer D’Vonn Brown made an impact in his first game as a Lion. Brown had 14 tackles and 4.5 tackles for loss. Deonte Morrison had two interceptions along with five tackles, while Shakeem Taylor added eight tackles for SAGU.

“Overall I was very proud of the effort and execution,” says Tristan, “but I was very disappointed in the lack of discipline that led to 11 penalties. That will be a focus for this week of practice.”
