Message from Peyton Aucoin

Tight end coach Jeff Traylor picked up a big verbal commitment from New Orleans (LA) Brother Martin standout tight end Peyton Aucoin on July 24th, 2015. The 6-foot-5, 262-pound Aucoin had a message for the Texas fans.

Peyton Aucoin is a Charlie Strong type of a football player on and off the field.  Blessed with great size, athletic ability and a lunch pail mentality he is exactly what Coach Strong is looking for in a recruit.  Coach Strong is fortunate to have a commitment from Aucoin and his family.


“I feel as if I'm the top blocking tight end in the country,” Peyton Aucoin said. “I do something that most tight ends can't. I'm willing to do the dirty work most tight ends are afraid of. For the next couple years’ fans can expect a physical presence up front with the ability to play in the passing game too. If I had to give advice for someone in this process it'd be to take it slow and not to pick a place because of how good they are or anything like that, pick it for the people surrounding you there.”
