Here’s some extra notes on the Dickinson Gators’ 28-7 win over the Clear Falls Knights and some thoughts on the Houston Texans’ 24-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
I covered the Knights’ 37-21 victory over Katy Cinco Ranch, and I have a couple extra tidbits on that game, as well as some thoughts on the Houston Texans’ 31-21 loss against the Cleveland Browns.
It’s one of the best times of the year on the sports calendar. Football is in full effect with NFL games joining college and high school this week. So, without further ado, here are my reflections from this past weekend.
Week 2 of Galveston County high school football is in the books, and that means some more observations from the games I got to cover.
This Galveston County football season in my weekly column, I thought I’d create a football notebook to document a few key plays from the games I cover that didn’t make the original game articles.
The main question for every team, of course, is how will they continue to play on through an ongoing pandemic. But, I’m also excited for some of the state of Texas’ top programs, and I have three burning questions specifically for those teams.
Athletes’ mental health is an issue that also should be recognized on all levels at all ages, and it was encouraging to listen to the responses some of Galveston County’s high school coaches had on the topic when it was brought up at the annual Kick Off By The Creek event recently.
Fans, savor the excitement of this year's draft because the hope is it'll once again be the final one for a long time in which the Rockets are looking for a franchise player.
With all of the franchise's recent miscues in mind, how did the Houston NFL team’s management roll out the 2021 campaign? Well, by announcing Wednesday that tickets for its open training camp dates will only be available to season ticket holders.
Now that sports on all levels are returning to some normality, it is my great pleasure to announce the preview magazine will be returning in the Aug. 21-22 weekend edition of The Daily News. And, I thought, we should let the readers and fans decide what team appears on the cover of the football preview magazine.
I hope this instance will finally wake up World Anti-Doping Agency to no longer test for marijuana and take it off its list of banned substances so this doesn't happen to another athlete. And, really, WADA ought to drop sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson's suspension, as well.
All in all, now that the Rockets have their No. 2 draft pick secured, there’s not much they could do wrong with it.
Houston Rockets fans, keep your fingers crossed the ping pong balls bounce in the right direction because there's much at stake.
Because every once in awhile, fans are left wondering "what if" like in that magical 2015 UH season, I'm ultimately in favor of a playoff expansion. While many seasons won't offer many surprises in a 12-team playoff, under the current college football ranking system, it will at least give the occasional upstart team a chance.
Going from an unbeatable juggernaut barreling its way to a state championship to one defeat away from falling short of that goal was surely mentally taxing, but both teams showed their character and mental toughness by bouncing back with a win.
After nearly a year of playing in either silence or a smattering of crowd noise, the moment Houston Astros fans — and surely the players themselves — have been waiting a long time for is finally upon us.
Among the Sam Houston State Bearkats’ key players are twin brothers Zyon and Tristin McCollum — a pair of senior defensive backs and former Ball High Tors. Also on the Bearkats roster, are freshman defensive back and Dickinson alumnus Savien Arnett, and freshman linebacker and former Friendswood Mustang Trey Mappe.
It seems preposterous that a professional baseball player can’t lay down a simple bunt, but the Astros Myles Straw is far from the only player or team to abandon the small-ball tactic, as good bunts have nearly disappeared by Major League Baseball, aside from, maybe, some of the pitchers who have to bat in the National League.
