  1. And I read about the Courtney/Bussey show! Lol Wow what a night. Congrats to the Bears!
  2. Man, Winona had some big kids. And a couple of their backs (21 and 23) were dang hard to bring down! Lots of penalties (fixable) but hopefully they’ll clean it up and make a run in district. All the best to y’all moving forward.
  3. Thanks man. Hoping we can build on that and continue to make progress. As @SwarmingOnEmsaid, the position changes were positive and the line was dang good. They moved folks all night. Congrats to Joaquin on a big win and good luck next week!
  4. I was hoping for no nail biter. It was nice to get a win and not be stressed out the whole game. Lol Congrats to Timpson. Y’all continue to rock and roll!
  5. That should be a great game! I read where Bryant, AR hasn't lost a game since 2018?? Should be a battle with Longview!
  6. Well said! I always liked Southlake Carroll's motto "Protect the Tradition." It's true. Maintain, PROTECT, preach it........and work like HECK to keep it going. I'm ready for tonight.
  7. Thank you! Good luck to Joaquin tonight. I don’t think you’ll need it! Lol
  8. I really like the way you put that. So so true. And that’s what it’s all about. Former Jackets seeing what the current crew can bring and future Jackets dreaming of the day they get to play out there for the black and gold. Friday night lights at its best….and homecoming no less!
  9. Hey Jett! They were good games. Props to Winona! They have some good teams. I was impressed by our middle school kids. Good numbers, size up front, and speedy backs. I was encouraged. JV battled. We probably owned the time of possession, but a turnover and not being able to sustain some drives killed us. That was actually our JV’s first game to play so I thought they fought hard and I saw some positives. We’ll get after it next week vs. San Augustine and hopefully more improvement. All the best to Winona going forward!
  10. It’s holding up good. We actually practiced during 2 a days on it in the evening practices under the lights. I was worried because we got some pretty heavy rain and didn’t know if it would be messed up but it was all good. A couple years ago we added more dirt to the middle of it so it absorbs and drains pretty well. Still, turf would be nice at some point!
  11. Winona Wildcats (1-2) at Alto Yellowjackets (0-1) 7:30 p.m. Friday at Cam'Ron Matthews Field at Yellowjacket Stadium, Alto Coaches: Keylon Kincade, Winona; Lance Gamble, Alto Last Week: Elysian Fields 41, Winona 0; Alto was unable to play due to COVID-19 protocols. Next Week: Grand Saline at Winona; San Augustine at Alto Game Analysis: Alto has only played one game this fall, and that was in Week 0 when the Mean Sting fell to Troup. COVID-19 issues have prevented Alto from playing and practicing for the past two weeks and that could be a real challenge for the Yellowja
  12. No sir, not yet but hopefully someday in the future. Some may forget because I know life goes on, but our students are still in portable buildings from the tornadoes of 2019. Rainy days and storms are an adventure! lol We ARE, however, making progress on our new high school and coliseum but there have been construction delays because you can’t get steel, material, etc. Move in date is spring 2022 (we’ll see!). So right now turf hasn’t been a priority, but we have a pretty dang good-looking grass field and the best end zone painters around! Lol
  13. Yes sir!! You might be onto something. lol The thing is it's just the expectation here, whether some years it is realistic or not. And people understand that. I mean we were 10-0 the year before but with a young crew last year we hoped we could compete for the district championship, but it didn't go our way. We were in most games (the district champion Normangee players told our players that it was the toughest game they had played all season to that point; also, we were up 24-6 at the half over Centerville and had a chance to put that game away but didn't). After some personnel changes
  14. Every team has at least one loss, even Normangee who was state ranked and got beat 37-0 last week. The way I look at it it’s anyone’s district. And why not us? This group won district in 7th, 8th and JV so they have it in them to compete. That’s what we play for around here: championships. We may not always win them but that’s what we strive for. So yes, I think we’ll compete.
  15. We’re coming along. Hate that we’ve had to miss the last two weeks and anxious to see us back in action. Our loss to Troup was a lot of sloppiness on our part; too many turnovers and big plays we gave up. The coaches have moved some kids around I think to maximize our talent. We’ll see how it pays off in the game. We are a work in progress and as is so many times the case when changing coaching staffs, questions will be answered the more we play. Game situations tell the tale and you learn who can do what. I’m expecting improvement weekly and for us to compete for the district championshi
