A year since tearing the ACL in his left knee during a preseason scrimmage, Fort Worth South Hills senior quarterback Tracin Wallace felt great after Friday’s scrimmage against Fort Worth Dunbar.
Wallace, an Oklahoma State commit, played two series and threw two touchdowns, including a 14-yard strike to twin brother Tylan, also an Oklahoma State commit.
“It felt pretty good; it felt like I’m back to 100 percent again,” said Tracin Wallace, who missed all of last season. “It felt good getting back into the flow of things.”
Wallace wore a red jersey and wasn’t allowed to take a hit — getting a quick whistle at any sign of danger.
“It wasn’t live, didn’t want to get hurt like last year,” he said.
A 2014 all-state honorable-mention selection and the District 9-5A Offensive MVP, Wallace played 16 snaps and completed six of eight passes for 84 yards and two touchdowns, the first coming from 5 yards out.
“His knee is fine. We had a quick whistle on him, didn’t want to run him at all, we know he can run,” coach J.J. Resendez said. “What I wanted to see was him sit back in the pocket, work the pocket, move the ball around to different receivers and he did a good job on that tonight.”
Each team had three possessions while both coaches elected to skip a live quarter. Dunbar scored a touchdown on its second offensive trip.
“I was hoping because it’s been a while since I played against competition,” Wallace said about not playing a live quarter.
Wallace, injured in a scrimmage on Aug. 14 of last season against Dallas Seagoville, last played in 2014 when he accounted for more than 3,500 total yards and 52 touchdowns.
The Scorpions open the regular season against Seagoville on Aug. 26.
