Stevens’ Rivers to trans­fer from UTSA

San Antonio Express-News - - SPORTS -

UTSA sopho­more quar­ter­back Bryce Rivers, a Stevens grad, tweeted Fri­day he in­tends to trans­fer.

Rivers was UTSA’s pri­mary quar­ter­back for the team’s fi­nal two games of 2018, mak­ing his first ca­reer start in the sea­son fi­nale against North Texas on Nov. 24. He made his first ap­pear­ance of the year dur­ing the fi­nal minute of UTSA’s game against FIU on Nov. 10, throw­ing a 36-yard touch­down pass to Tykie Ogle-Kel­logg on his first throw.

For the year, he com­pleted 37 of 64 passes (57.8 per­cent) for 463 yards with two touch­downs and two in­ter­cep­tions.

“After long talks with close friends and fam­ily, I think it is in my best in­ter­est to trans­fer from UTSA,” Rivers posted. “I have made mem­o­ries and friend­ships that will last a life­time here at UTSA and loved every sec­ond of be­ing a Road­run­ner. Thank you to all the fans, the city of San An­to­nio and UTSA for tak­ing a chance on a home­town kid and be­liev­ing in me. I hope for noth­ing but suc­cess for my brothers and this pro­gram in the fu­ture.”

UTSA fin­ished the sea­son 3-9 and ranked last in the nation in to­tal of­fense at 247.1 yards per game.

Rivers came off the bench for lim­ited ac­tion in three games as a fresh­man last year after throw­ing for 6,000 yards with 56 touch­downs dur­ing his ju­nior and se­nior sea­sons at Stevens.
