Tre Siggers Transfers to Incarnate Word

Without much hype surrounding his transfer portal destination, Siggers was spotted on the Cardinals’ opening fall roster for 2023 as students returned to practice this summer. Siggers will wear No. 0 for Incarnate Word in 2023.

A Duncanville, TX native, Siggers opted to stay at home and play for North Texas following a high school career that also saw him make multiple stops and play multiple positions. Although he’d attracted Power Five attention from the likes of Texas Tech and Iowa State, the linebacker-turned-running back made little impact during his first two seasons (2017-2018) with the Mean Green in the Conference USA.

Once he had the ball in his hands in 2019, however, his impact was immediate. Siggers torched SMU — his future team — for 164 yards and a score in his collegiate running back debut. He went on to lead North Texas in carries (152), rushing yards (853), and touchdowns (six).

His performances earned him an All-Conference USA honorable mention selection.

Siggers finished his time at North Texas with 458 rushing yards and a touchdown in the disrupted 2020 season before transferring to SMU for the 2021 campaign. Playing alongside Ulysses Bentley IV in the Mustangs’ backfield, he was a workhorse back with 147 carries while leading the team with 727 yards and nine touchdowns.

With Bentley transferring to Ole Miss for the 2022 season, Siggers was once again expected to shoulder the load for Rhett Lashlee’s SMU team. However, injury derailed his final season in University Park, and he rushed for just 229 yards and four touchdowns before entering the transfer portal in early January.

Joining the Cardinals roster that has seen significant turnover after former head coach G.J. Kinne left for Texas State, Siggers has the opportunity to add to his 2,267 yards and 20 touchdowns in the 2023 college football season.

He’s a bulldozer of a back who lowers his shoulder to initiate contact rather than simply embracing it and can grind out extra yardage with his lower body strength. He can be the go-to guy in short yardage, third down, and red zone situations for Incarnate Word this season.
