    We like to pound our chest when we're right. I was so wrong on this game. I was fairly confident it would be close. Oh me of little faith. Carthage was easily the better team. They're like a great surgeon removing unhealthy parts during surgery. Can't get to it from the right, go in from the left. They have so many ways to beat you, you're bound to like one of them. Congrats to the young men, Coaches, and a great organization.

    A&M needed both. Achane isn’t a every down back. But Evans is probably headed to Georgia the way it’s looking right now. That’s why I think A&M pushed for and took that LB. There wasn’t room for him if you plan on signing Evans and taking a transfer from Shepherd. That said Evans is just becoming more of a headache by the day. He clearly is already too big for high school. Will that transfer over into college? This kid has last chance u written all over him if he comes into college with the same attitude. I hope he gets he reality check sooner rather than later before he #### away what could be a bright future.

    Both 2 and 3 did what they had to do to win the game. Neither show boated. One would have probably voted for the other. Don’t forget the QB who was a part of every play. The O line allowed it all to work. Team sport for sure

    And I may be wrong about this, Gibson does not strike me as a materialistic person I mean money and possessions so I’m not sure if you can dangle dollar signs in front of him. I think he likes a challenge for sure but this man cannot and I mean cannot speak about these kids and not get emotional. He spews love for these boys. He’s had me crying a time or 2. What a blessing to have this man and the PG coaching staff so involved in shaping 2 of my sons! Truly thankful!

    This Christian magazine called for Clinton to be removed, and it lays out a compelling case for why Trump should be removed. https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/december-web-only/trump-should-be-removed-from-office.html VIEWS | EDITORIAL Trump Should Be Removed from Office It’s time to say what we said 20 years ago when a president’s character was revealed for what it was. MARK GALLIDECEMBER 19, 2019 Image: Drew Angerer / Staff / Getty Images In our founding documents, Billy Graham explains that Christianity Today will help evangelical Christians interpret the news in a manner that reflects their faith. The impeachment of Donald Trump is a significant event in the story of our republic. It requires comment. The typical CT approach is to stay above the fray and allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square, to encourage all to pursue justice according to their convictions and treat their political opposition as charitably as possible. We want CT to be a place that welcomes Christians from across the political spectrum, and reminds everyone that politics is not the end and purpose of our being. We take pride in the fact, for instance, that politics does not dominate our homepage. That said, we do feel it necessary from time to time to make our own opinions on political matters clear—always, as Graham encouraged us, doing so with both conviction and love. We love and pray for our president, as we love and pray for leaders (as well as ordinary citizens) on both sides of the political aisle. Let’s grant this to the president: The Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion. This has led many to suspect not only motives but facts in these recent impeachment hearings. And, no, Mr. Trump did not have a serious opportunity to offer his side of the story in the House hearings on impeachment. But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral. The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration. He has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. His Twitter feed alone—with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders—is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused. Trump’s evangelical supporters have pointed to his Supreme Court nominees, his defense of religious liberty, and his stewardship of the economy, among other things, as achievements that justify their support of the president. We believe the impeachment hearings have made it absolutely clear, in a way the Mueller investigation did not, that President Trump has abused his authority for personal gain and betrayed his constitutional oath. The impeachment hearings have illuminated the president’s moral deficiencies for all to see. This damages the institution of the presidency, damages the reputation of our country, and damages both the spirit and the future of our people. None of the president’s positives can balance the moral and political danger we face under a leader of such grossly immoral character. This concern for the character of our national leader is not new in CT. In 1998, we wrote this: And this: Unfortunately, the words that we applied to Mr. Clinton 20 years ago apply almost perfectly to our current president. Whether Mr. Trump should be removed from office by the Senate or by popular vote next election—that is a matter of prudential judgment. That he should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments. To the many evangelicals who continue to support Mr. Trump in spite of his blackened moral record, we might say this: Remember who you are and whom you serve. Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior. Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump’s immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency. If we don’t reverse course now, will anyone take anything we say about justice and righteousness with any seriousness for decades to come? Can we say with a straight face that abortion is a great evil that cannot be tolerated and, with the same straight face, say that the bent and broken character of our nation’s leader doesn’t really matter in the end? We have reserved judgment on Mr. Trump for years now. Some have criticized us for our reserve. But when it comes to condemning the behavior of another, patient charity must come first. So we have done our best to give evangelical Trump supporters their due, to try to understand their point of view, to see the prudential nature of so many political decisions they have made regarding Mr. Trump. To use an old cliché, it’s time to call a spade a spade, to say that no matter how many hands we win in this political poker game, we are playing with a stacked deck of gross immorality and ethical incompetence. And just when we think it’s time to push all our chips to the center of the table, that’s when the whole game will come crashing down. It will crash down on the reputation of evangelical religion and on the world’s understanding of the gospel. And it will come crashing down on a nation of men and women whose welfare is also our concern. Mark Galli is editor in chief of Christianity Today.

    I agree, Evans is a super athlete, but like you said, he comes with a ton of baggage.

    I'm liking him better than Evans now. The heck with that baggage that comes with Evans.

    I agree, and the best thing about him is he can run it and you can put him in the slot because he’s also an elite pass catcher. Kid is extremely talented!! I think he he will also be a return specialist.

    What most impressed me about Gunter was their overall team speed. Individually not blazing fast, but always a bunch where the ball was. And that cockeyed offense was a well oiled machine. Being older than dirt, I love to see a good running oriented attack, and Gunter was just that. Congrats to all involved with. Gunter football.

    He’s small, but he’s a special game breaking talent. He won’t hold up for 25 carries a game between the tackles. But his speed is truly elite. He will be one of the fastest players in the country next year. A&M hasn’t had a player like this in some time. He makes Kirk look average athletically.

    Yes, I was really surprised he wasn't the offensive MVP ... should have been named co-MVP at the very least ...

    Officially he was reassigned. Leaving at the end of the school year. The internal problems you're likely speaking of dealt with staff and were handled swiftly and appropriately by administration. My son was a move in to the district going into high school. It's been the best thing that could have happened for him. There's only one other district in the county that even comes close to what GS has to offer. The administration in GS is top notch and is constantly and consistently improving what they offer as a district. Anyone who says differently is uninformed. I didn't grow up there, I didn't go to school there, and I have zero ties to anything there. It is not a biased opinion, but is based solely on the experience we've had there.

    I wouldn't consider this a choke job. They lost to a great team. A choke job is what JT did last year against Highland Park, Lee did against Lufkin, and what Lufkin did against Longview. These are choke jobs after being up big and losing in the last few minutes. They just lost tonight.

    Couple of 2021 Longhorn commits playing in the state championship tonight for DentonRyan.#2 Bowman Jr and #1 Sanders, these two young men played a great game Bowman had 2 INTs and several catches out of the slot. Sanders had a late TD grab on a jump ball in the back of the endzone and at least 2 sacks+a FF. Tough loss tonight but I’m excited for those two kids to wear burnt orange.

    Thanks for all the complimentary remarks about Gunter's performance last night. We are very proud. This team has flown under the radar for much of the year as they developed into a championship team after returning only 4 on each side of the ball. Great season for Pewitt as well.

    Christianity Today said it’s time to call a spade a spade. The spade is this—Christianity Today has been used by the left for their political agenda. It’s obvious that Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism. Is President Trump guilty of sin? Of course he is, as were all past presidents and as each one of us are, including myself. Therefore, let’s pray for the President as he continues to lead the affairs of our nation.

    This is all you need to know about this article Franklin Graham 9 hours ago My Response to Christianity Today: Christianity Today released an editorial stating that President Trump should be removed from office—and they invoked my father’s name (I suppose to try to bring legitimacy to their statements), so I feel it is important for me to respond. Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today; but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. In fact, he would be very disappointed. I have not previously shared who my father voted for in the past election, but because of this article, I feel it is necessary to share it now. My father knew Donald Trump, he believed in Donald Trump, and he voted for Donald Trump. He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation.

    We'll see come Sunday, and who know's if Dak's shoulder will be able to handle a hit. When I thought of this game, I thought of the 1990 season when Troy was hurt, and Babe Laufenberg played in his place. That was the final score of that game. At the time they were also 7-7, and could have finished the season with a winning record. I don't know if Cooper Rush can fill in for Dak, and there isn't a third string quarterback if he goes down.
