The Port Arthur News

BEAUMONT — BEAUMONT — After redshirting last season at the University of Houston, quarterback Rex Dausin has officially committed to continue his football career with Lamar as announced by head coach Ray Woodard on Friday.

  “We are excited for him to be a part of our team and family,” Woodard said. “I think he’ll benefit from his stay here, and we’ll benefit as well. He comes from a strong football background with his dad being a coach and a player, and he’ll have an opportunity to do well here.”

  Prior to sitting out last season, Dausin put together an outstanding prep career for Warren High School in San Antonio. The 6-foot-2 signal caller was the District 27-5A Most Valuable Player as a senior after completing 65 percent of his passes for 3,310 yards with 34 touchdowns to go along with 564 yards on the ground and 15 more scores.

  Overall, San Antonio Warren finished with an 11-2 record, and Dausin was named to the all-state second team by the Padilla Poll.

  “I liked him on film, and then when I interviewed him, I knew he’d be a good addition,” Woodard added. “He’s demonstrated strong leadership abilities, and I’m looking forward to seeing him in action here when we get started.”

  Previously, Dausin was an all-district honoree as a junior, his first season at quarterback after beginning his high school career as a wide receiver. He also hails from an accomplished football family as his father Bryan, who also served as Warren’s head coach, along with uncles Randy and Chris played collegiately for Texas A&M.

  Dausin will be eligible to compete for the Cardinals in the fall, and he will have four years of eligibility remaining
