High School Football, November 21, 2008

This past Friday night Sara and her, Copperas Cove, Bulldawgs, won a hard fought game against Garland 21-7, and now, move into the next round of the playoffs against Cypress Ridge, a Houston area team from the Cypress- Fairbanks School District, that features one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. Of course, Texas is the breeding grounds for great quarterbacks! Having lived in the Cy Fair District, the largest in the state, for over 25 years, I feel like I helped build many of their seven, high schools and my son, Randy, even played for Cypress Creek High School.

While the Dawgs continued their winning ways, Goldthwaite’s season came to an abrupt end with a 33-7 loss to a big, and just as fast as us, team from Shiner. One good note is that next year, Goldthwaite returns 15 of their 22 starters, 8 on defense!

Middle school basketball chugged along with Austin being sick and missing the first 2 games. Mikayla and her 7th grade team’s record was 0-3, but the team started coming together against Deleon.

Here Mikayla has her opponent back on her heels, as she begins a drive to her left towards the basket.The Lady Eagles beat De Leon and then edged the good San Saba ‘Dillo team (our bitter rival), and this was the first time since “Little Dribblers” began 4 years ago, they had ever even come close against the ‘Dillos!
