The Legend of Turpin Time

The Legend of Turpin Time


The Legend of Turpin Time

KaVontae Turpin arrived, on TCU campus, a skinny, under the radar, kid from Monroe, Louisiana.

Turpin will leave with a world-class education from TCU, a beat up wrist watch, and a legacy as one of the best and most entertaining Horned Frogs players EVER.

Check out Turpin’s accolades thus far:

His senior season, 2018, is shaping up to be the best one yet. Turpin has transformed himself into a team captain.

Turpin knows touchdowns. He is the only player in the nation to have a receiving touchdown, rushing touchdown, a passing touchdown, punt return touchdown, and kickoff return touchdown in a single season (2017). He is one of just five players to accomplish this feat since 1996. The others are Christian McCaffrey, C.J. Spiller, Jerrel Jernigan, and T.Y. Hilton.

Turpin is currently in ninth place for TCU career receptions. He has 134 and the record is 152. They haven’t all been easy. Turpin is like a Timex watch.

Turpin is in 12th place for TCU career touchdown catches with 11.

Turpin is the All-time Frogs leader in both punt return and special teams touchdowns. He has 4 punt return touchdowns and 5 special teams touchdowns.

Turpin is the All-time Frogs leader in kickoff return yards with 1,812.

Number 25 is dangerous with and without the football. Here he is as the lead blocker for his teammate, Jet Anderson.

Kids everywhere now dream of being like Turpin Time.

Turpin is not done, yet. It is only week 6 of the 2018 college football season. Watch #25 in action this Thursday night, October 11th, against Texas Tech. It’s a BLACKOUT under the Carter lights.
