PLANO, Texas – Former East Texas Baptist University football player Brett Peddicord has signed a professional contract with the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League. Peddicord played for ETBU last season as the punter.
Below is an excerpt from the Texas Revolution release:
“Brett Peddicord signed with the Revolution following two seasons at Georgia Southern University and his senior season at East Texas Baptist University. The former walk-on at GSU was able to become a preseason All-American at ETBU despite only kicking in high school for one season. Peddicord only tried out for the AHS football team because of a bet from his soccer teammates that the goalie couldn’t make the open spot on the roster. Following his career at ETBU Peddicord traveled to Poland to kick for the Warsaw Eagles professional football team. During the season Peddicord had the league’s best punt average at 43.5 yards per punt, the league’s longest punt at 69 yards, most field goals in a season (11), longest field goal (53 yards) and most points kicking (86). Following the season he was named the PLFA’s best kicker for 2012.”
He will be playing with fellow and former ETBU teammate Anquainius Frazier.
