This will be Vest's first year in the Lone Star Football League and he will be playing wide receiver and defensive back. Vest played in twelve games for the Texas Tech Red Raiders. During that time span he had thirteen tackles, eleven of which were solo tackles, while playing corner and special teams for the Red Raiders.
