  3. I have done baseball and basketball for several years. I do it because I love the game. I would do football also, but I enjoy going to various games (My Game of the Week) on Friday nights. I have not considered quitting because I enjoy it. Do I have nights when I get home and wonder why I do it, absolutely, but 95% of the time I love it! I do not do it for the money, although the money is great. Lots of officials do it for the money and do not spend time studying and working to improve. I want to be better every time I leave the court or field. I grade myself and I have always said that I want to be able to leave and feel comfortable saying that I would be glad to sit down and watch the game with the coaches who I just did the game for. As a fan, I am tough on officials because it bothers me that there are officials who officiate and could really care less what kind of a job they do. If we are going to do a job in life and be paid to do it, then there should be some sense of pride in the job that we do. Lots of officials are all about getting paid and get done asap! Fans who do not understand the game (which is a large number and every town has them), really bother me, but it is simply part of the game. Stupid fans really make me laugh and for the most part, I don't hear them much. I am to focused on doing my job and doing it to the best of my ability. Players are making it difficult at times as well and I blame a lot of this on the parents. They have been told there entire life how good they are and when things don't go the way they want them to go, then you see the attitude. Entitlement is killing our young people, but that is a subject for another day. Anyway, off my soapbox, we need officials in every sport. We struggle to cover games each year and it is becoming more difficult each year, so come join us. We need all the help we can get and just block out the idiots and do it for the love of the game.
  4. One bright spot MP has going for them is the Freshman team. I believe they are unbeaten and have been beating folks pretty bad.
  5. Mavchamp-I have said this before and I will say it again, THANKS for all the work you put in to keep us updated. As for recommendations moving forward, any chance you could start one will all involved and then just keep the one Marshall is involved in at the time up to date and hope someone will pick up where Marshall is not involved. Just my thoughts. Not sure anyone can touch the job you have done and I will sure miss it once Football is over and the other sports roll around, but if done this way and some of us will pick it up, it would be nice to follow all of the 5A teams in our area. The pay is so good, maybe you could consider doing it all. Does that make any sense? 5A Div I (Football Only) (Region II) Texas High John Tyler Mckinney North Mesquite Poteet Sherman West Mesquite Wylie East 5A Div II (Football Only) (Region III) Focus on this one during football Marshall Hallsville Pine Tree Mount Pleasant Jacksonville Whitehouse Lindale Nacogdoches --------------------------------------- Basketball/Baseball/Softball/Volleyball/Cross Country/Soccer15-5A (Region II) Greenville Lindale Mount Pleasant Royce City Sulphur Springs Texas High 16-5A (Region II) Focus on this one during Basketball/Baseball, etc. Marshall John Tyler Lufkin Hallsville Jacksonville Pine Tree Whitehouse Nacogdoches Thanks again for all that you do!
  6. Softball: #4 Prosper 2 Mount Pleasant 0. Prosper pitcher was to much for the Lady Tigers. Good season for the Lady Tigers!
  7. Softball: Prosper over Mount Pleasant 5-0 in Game 1.
  8. Soccer Regional Semis: MP wins over Midlothian 3-1. Play winner of Lake Ridge and Wakeland tomorrow at 12:30 for a trip to State Tourney.
  9. MP Soccer advanced to Regional Tournament with a 2-1 win over Lucas Lovejoy.
  10. Softball: MP over PT, not sure on final. Baseball: PT over MP 15-6, 6 hours and 37 minutes (JK, but it was one ugly game)
  11. Baseball: MP leads Hallsville 3-2 in the bottom of the 6th. Hallsville is batting iwith 2 outs and no one on base. Game will be resumed tomorrow.
  12. That's a tough way to start District! Y'all will be in ball games when the kid who pitched tonight pitches. He was very good tonight and deserved to get the W. He went the distance and didn't allow a hit until the 6th and I believe only allowed 3 hits total. Defense behind him let him down.
  13. Baseball MP over Marshall 4-3. MP scored twice in the bottom of 7th. Softball MP 8-1 over Marshall
  14. Baseball Hallsville 9 MP 3 Softball MP 3 Hallsville 2
  15. I would agree, I had SS winning just based on what I have seen. Really thought they had a chance to make it to SA. This Region has some very good 5A teams, tough to survive. MP played the best they have played all year to beat a very good Little Elm team. The RJ Hampton kid from Little Elm is worth the price of admission over the next two years. He finished the night with 39 and can do it all! Pretty special Sophomore.
  16. Mount Pleasant wins 80-78 over Little Elm. Great game!
  17. Baseball-Mount Pleasant has opened the season 2-0-1. Struggling to find places to play due to weather as everyone is. They beat John Tyler 13-1 early last week and then traveled to Wyle Saturday and tied Wyle 3-3 and beat Carrollton Creekview 10-0.
  18. Star Country 96.9 is carrying the MP game on the radio and you can stream it as well from Easttexasradio.com.
