  1. Lorena's D line solid! The clock running at that game would have been legendary if Cameron would have lost in the final seconds. I counted at least 5 clock infractions in the 4th qtr. No telling how many in the first half because no one was paying attention then. The officials did a good job with the penalty calling side of things but didn't keep up with the clock management at all.
  2. Gutsy call with Brock and Yoe in the top 5 but I’m not going to argue. Great contest in Lorena last night with the game ending on an intentional safety by Cameron. Keep it coming 09. High school football in 3A is going to get a lot better.
  3. You're too modest. I agree anything can happen between the top 4 in this district, but you gotta give Franklin the nod at least for now. I
  4. I think we already know who the clear favorite is in District 11. I'm curious to see how the remaining stack up. Gonna be fun. LRA FRANKLIN Yoe (because I'm bias)
  5. Although I would like to see a win, I agree with your assessment in that we have to have all our fingers and toes when district starts... This has to be one of the most brutal schedules I've seen in a long while!!
  6. What's the status on Yoe RB - Bradley and #1 Receiver?
  7. Connally was loaded with talent and speed. I’m told QB will be playing in SEC in the near future. Got to admire the Yoemen spunk and character (something I hadn’t seen in a few years) coming back from 39-13 half to go ahead 40-39 in 4 qtr.. Yoe had plenty of opportunities to put the game away but receivers dropped to many catchable balls. Need to work on tackling. Get that taken care of and they’re going to be tough to beat for anyone.
  8. Yoe O line was pretty dominant last night against a big, athletic Yoakum squad. They could have ran the ball every play and still won handily.
  9. Lorena and Brock had a close call also. Stock is going up for the Yoemen in District 11.
  10. Good job on the analysis 09! What's the skinny on Yoakum? I heard they could possibly be a top 20.
  11. Have the numbers in the school gone down or is it just a decline in student interest in football? If numbers in the school are rising and athletic participation is falling, it would be pretty ugly if Yoe gets moved up to 4A one day. The remedy is get back on the winning path and re-instill the Yoe Pride. If anyone can lead that effort, it would be RR. BTW- I heard Florez is back? If that's true, then thats a positive step.
  12. Another great job 09. It'll interesting to see your adjustments as the 2022 season moves along. I gotta a feeling "someone" in the bottom ranks will move up drastically when district starts.
  13. Best thread ever on Smoaky! A lot of hype before the game. Some people forget how close that game was through 3 quarters before Yoe finally pulled away. If I'm not mistaken, Tatum led 14-13 midway through the 3rd. Best Player- The late Traion Smith - 7,620 yds rushing Best Game- 2012 Newton / Yoe. Everyone and their mother picked Newton to destroy Cameron. Yoe shut that high powered offense down to zero points in the second half.
  14. Not sure you can improve on last year:) So your saying another title?
  15. I heard an interview with Head Football Coach - Jason Herring in Reguio a while back. His staff, including himself, were coaching the kids from Junior High on up through high school. The system worked very well since the players coming up the ranks were getting the same coaching as the varsity players. With such a shortage of coaches today, I wonder if more smaller schools may go to this style?? Not sure if he is still doing this, but its a genius philosophy if you think about it.
  16. Losing Hemphill is huge! Never thought I'd see the day when someone left Cameron for LRA. 79, is trouble still lurking in paradise?
  17. I agree. We weren't perfect angels by no means back in the day, but there were consequences to or bad decisions by the school, the family and a sense of shame in the community. Today everyone just wants to have a "conversation."
  18. I hear what you're saying 88 but every high school coach in America is dealing with this same culture and still at the end of the day, state champions and great teams come through every season. The problem is that Cameron has had about 4 years of a declining winning attitude and football savvy in their culture and it's gonna take time to get it back. Rhoades is the right guy for the job, if for nothing else, getting that winning way of doing things back in the fold. Whether he can take Yoe to the promised land in Arlington again all depends how long he wants to coach and the talent level that's coming through in the next few years. Having said that, this district next year is gonna be tough on everyone! Hit the Weights, Basic Coverage & Learn to Tackle Again would solve 80% of the issues.
  19. I believe 24 is a Junior, correct? Just watched some highlights on this kid. I may have 1 Franklin 2 Yoe 3 Lorena 4 Academy
  20. I wonder who's going to come out the other side alive? This district is gonna be like the Ali / Frazier fight. It will be interesting to see who the favorite is prior to season vs prior to district. Yoemen better start tightening up them proverbial jock straps now.
  21. Welcome to the new District of Doom and Destruction! 5 class programs.
  22. Wow, you very rarely see these life long head coach/school relationships! Says a lot about the school as well as the coach. Congrats to Lorena and their fans! Get ready for the target on your back. As for Brock, this new coach bringing in a new system and going to the finals was nothing short of spectacular. I think the spread offense is only going to make Brock more of a force in the next few years to come.
  23. Pretty tough playing 2 state finalist in the regular season. But beginning in district play, Lorena has been pretty dominate over all their opponents. LRA played a decent game against them and Cameron hung with them for a little while, until the cream rose to the top and Lorena's O&D lines took over the game. Brock destroyed # 1 defending champs J Ned and beat a Very Good MV team in playoffs, so this one on paper is a toss up to me. Its probably coming down to which staff has the best game plan. On a hunch, I'll take Lorena.
