  1. No, you misunderstood me. They scored 69 at Reliant. Game was NOT played outdoors. Refugio coach called a timeout and went for broke on a fourth down pass at the end. Word was their coach said if they didn’t score 70 he was afraid they might not be strong enough to beat Cisco. They missed the extra point to get only 69. Must have been an omen caused Cisco kicked their butt in ATT.
  2. And Waskom was pick to finish 3rd in district in 2015. And not to make any waves but Coach Pearson lobbied to play Refugio outdoors and not give them the benefit of playing in a dome. Refugio was the better team especially as Aimee was not playing, but ...... outside might have helped.
  3. Jefferson @ Waskom Friday 5 pm JV start.
  4. While all this history is quite interesting (not), this thread is about Waskom 22-23. New coaching staff in place, loss of key players to Tatum, all means change is inevitable. Heard the defense played as expected Saturday morning against each other. Can they score though? Hearing they are favored by 38 over 1st week Redwater so they still have players. I know the skill players are bigger than their previous state champs, but have yet to prove they have the intangibles that was there then. Maybe Pearson can bring that back?
  5. Photo I am referring to is this next year’s seniors. Maybe they assigned that number to someone that didn’t play last year?
  6. Just looked at the senior photos of the team and there is a #7 in the photo. By the photo I would not have guessed him to be the fastest kid in it. Looks can be deceiving though.
  7. Well, since he is in Tatum I guess I must have been misinformed about their team speed this year. So much disinformation going around in our country these days, one has to see it to actually believe it.
  8. The 2014 and 2015 teams were “pretty fast’ in my eyes
  9. I could have sworn I read a reply on this thread this morning. Something about mobile homes? I would much rather be reading about 2022 Wildcat expectations and updates. I am hearing they will be pretty fast in key spots again this year. Speed sure is a luxury in football.
  10. All of those things make sense. Waskom had perhaps one of the most football friendly superintendents in the whole state when keeling came in. Great man and a huge football fan. He retired. Change was inevitable.
  11. Just to clarify one point... QB contender is the son of the O line coach. OC came over from prior coaching with Pearson. I think it could be an interesting year for the wildcats for sure.
  12. You still in Virginia or have you returned to ETX? I will be back on the Waskom train this season. Miss the old contests for sure.
  13. Appreciate the photo, Wild! Heard they had come good success this week against Marshal and Carthage. Y’all have to feel good about that.
  14. Dang! Sounds like Waskom is gonna be cellar dwellers next season. Never would have thought it could go back to that.
  15. Pearson was the weight room fanatic during Waskom’s build up years. Brownsboro couldn’t play football but they won state powerlifting once and would have run away with it again had covid not shut it down. Waskom is already working harder in the weight room this week than they were I would bet. I have a feeling the Daingerfield Waskom game will be meaningful.
  16. Interesting drama in deep ETX. One community at odds on decisions being made, another waiting in great anticipation and Daingerfield is expected to rule. Small town football is the best entertainment for sure.
  17. We all knew Brownsboro would be better the next year. No surprises at all there.
  18. 2012-2015 provided an entertaining pastime reading and commenting on this forum. Waskom football remained competitive for the next 6 years almost getting back to the big game last year. Hoping the next few years can bring back some of that excitement. If nothing else, Brownsboro revealed character. Best wishes for success to some Godly men who are to lead Waskom athletics next year.
  19. Haven’t been on in a while. Keeling and staff gave the good folks in Waskom some great times watching Friday night football. Hoping he can continue that success in Tatum. I think Waskom will stay on track too.
  20. Wow. Have this on YouTube tonight. Things have sure changed! I haven’t posted in some time. This game and the thread is about as exciting as the present administration in Washington. No JJ running his head on here and Arp without starting QB isn’t on the same level as Waskom this year. Maybe another time I guess.
  21. 2013 was the year Waskom came into EF with a focus that EF could not match. The game was over by the end of the first quarter. If they can channel that intensity this time, it could happen again. Always a great rivalry in deep East Texas! Hope both schools come out injury free.
  22. Most of the time when one team is picked by 21 they really mean it could be by 40. The fastest team will probably win. Hope you get rid of that skunky dog smell soon Wild.
  23. Not sure I have posted on here since I started my present job last year. Looks like Waskom has an improved team this year. Going with them for a win in this little rivalry.
  24. Good topic. Earl Campbell. Many thought him good enough to go straight into pro ball from JT. Nobody that I saw at 165 pounds could outplay Chan Aimee though. ////////// Thought I posted this last week. //. Saw Hallsville get some control over Peterson in the second half of the game in Rose. Only time to see him play in person. He did not have a lot of help.
