TCU Horned Frogs quarterback Casey Pachall admits to failing past drug test

It’s supposed to be a big year for the TCU Horned Frogs. It marks their first year in the Big XII conference, and it is the year that many of their old Southwest Conference rivalries will be restored. They are currently ranked as the No. 17 team in the nation according to the USA Today Preseason Coaches poll, and they are ready to finally prove once and for all that they belong with the “big boys” in college football.

During a campus-wide drug sweep in February, it was rumored at the time that starting Horned Frog quarterback Casey Pachall was one of the players involved, but nothing ever came out about him publicly. Now, months later, thanks to the open records act, reports are surfacing that the junior QB admitted to police at the time of the bust that he had recently failed a drug test given to student athletes.

Pachall admitted to the police that he had recently smoked marijuana as recently as a week prior to their interview with him months ago, but he also admitted that within the last year he had used both cocaine and ecstasy. He went on to say that the cocaine and ecstasy were a one-time thing and that he had not used them again since.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson admitted to the press that he was aware that his starting quarterback had failed the drug test months ago, but there didn’t appear to be any disciplinary action taken against Pachall.

Last year, Pachall garnered second-team All-Mountain West honors and threw for 2,9,21 yards and 25 touchdowns on the season.

He is a key player in TCU’s transition to a BCS conference, and as quarterback, he is the team leader.

Hopefully he has learned from his past mistakes because this is a critical year for the Horned Frogs, and any success they may have in their first year in the Big 12 will likely depend on him.
