Cameron Yoe vs. Mexia Blackcats


Recommended Posts

A very inexperenced Yoemen squad travels over to Mexia.  Hopefully that undefeated JV team from last season steps up. There could be some head shaking moments this season. 

Hopefully everyone will stay healthy and safe so we can get this season completed.

I got the black cats in this one. I think it will be a close game. They got that speedy back returning and a few good position players coming back on offense. Real question is at qb for the Mexia. Have no clue if they'll stay in the spread or goto power running with Abron coming in. I think they got their lb returning. That kid is a hoss. They had good size last year, and this game is at Mexia. I say Mexia by 7/10 points.

Going with Mexia. Good luck to Coach Abron and the new OC Jeremy Griffin. OC is a Pewitt alumni. Played QB under Huckaby with the Slot T and ran it well in Hughes Springs as their OC.

With what they have, they could go either way but there is a lot of talent on that team or in Mexia.

Gonna be exciting to see a team with great speed run that offense. It’s designed to get an extra step on the defense so if they have great speed it’ll be fun. Griffin passes the ball a lot with his version so the box isn’t so full.

Wiley was probably one of the fastest rb's we had seen all year other than Jeffy. Sounds like a good fit. I think Abron will be a good fit for Mexia. He'll bring disciple to them and some better coaching, that's what they been missing. The talent is there.

What type of offense did Abron run at Pewitt?  Is he tied to a specific offense or does he design an offense to his talent?

This should be Cameron's youngest team since 2011 or 2014.  Lots of questions entering the new season, but I'll be paying close attention to the o-line and QB position.  Mexia may be in the slot-t, Bellville still bases out of the slot-t if I'm not mistaken, and Franklin still runs it.  Could see a lot of that over the next three weeks. 

Not sure what Cornerstone Christian is running, but if they're playing the likes of Calallen, Carthage and Wall, they must feel pretty good about themselves.  This may be Cameron's most challenging non-district schedule that I've seen, so it'll be interesting to see how this young group responds.

Led the nation in all classes in rushing yards using the Slot T. Griffin throws it more and that should make defenses respect it more.

09 have you heard any information on how Mexia ISD is going to handle the visitor ticketing for the game?

I have not heard anything yet on that.  I do know that Rockdale fans needed to have "tickets" to get into the scrimmage, had it been played. 

I would not be surprised if Mexia allows X amount of capacity, and then those tickets are dispersed to parents of participants.  I don't believe there will be ANY general admission tickets for home games.  That's the last I heard on that.  I felt that fans should have an opportunity to get tickets if there were still some available, but Cameron ISD may be taking a different stance.  Even though our gym has a large seating capacity, you can only get in with a ticket handed out to volleyball parents.  No general admission there, either.  All games will be video streamed to go along with KMIL audio. 

I'm officially back as part of the press for 2020.

Didn’t need to throw it at Pewitt with that O-line.

I like how Griffin throws it more. Don’t get me wrong, it’s no air raid game, but it makes defenses a little more sit back on their heels.

How are these streaming processes going to work in these smaller press boxes.  Social distancing can make that interesting on who will get access. 

I saw where Rockdale and( Lexington in 3a d2) was going to allow tickets for fans other than parents of participants.  The district should be unanimous on their decision on how the tickets are going to be distributed.

You might already know but part of Mexia home side is also on the visitor side. Pretty messed up IMO. The home side on the North side are the seats that are covered that are the reserved seating. General admission home seating is on the South side with the visitors. SMH

Yes I remember that now since you brought it up.  Met a few nice Mexia fans the last time we played over there. 

Strange setup.   Copperas Cove Bulldogs play in a stadium that have stands only on one side of the field.  Makes for an interesting night.

Weather Friday night definitely will benifit Mexia's running attack.  The Yoemen are hurting in the backfield with inexperence.   That also includes the quarterback position.  This game could get ugly.
