Coach Banister

College Football

Barrett Banister, Missouri’s senior receiver from Fayetteville, said this week that he plans to give coaching a shot. It makes sense considering his grandfather, Harold Horton, was a longtime coach and his uncle, Tim Horton, is continuing his lengthy coaching career as the special teams coordinator and running backs coach at Air Force. “I would for sure regret it if I didn’t try,” Banister said. “I’m going to try and play football as long as I can and do it to the best of my ability. Then whenever I’m done with that, I’m going to for sure and try to coach.” Banister has another season to play football with the NCAA adding a year of eligibility due to covid-19, but he said he’s not sure what he’ll do about that. “I’m literally just focused on this game on Friday,” he said of the Tigers’ game at Arkansas. “I love Missouri and that’s kind of what’s on my mind right now.”
