Lake Travis one win from joining elite group
Austin American-Statesman    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A victory in the Class 4A, Division I state football championship this Saturday would put Lake Travis in a small but elite class. Sealy. Celina. Lake Travis. For a few more days at least, Sealy and Celina are the only teams in the history of Texas high school football to win state championships in four consecutive seasons. Sealy did it in Class 3A from 1994-97 while Celina accomplished the feat in Class 2A from 1998-2001. More

Another fourth-down play puts Euless Trinity into state finals
Fort Worth Star-Telegram    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For a second consecutive week, with the game in the balance, Brandon Carter was running in the open field, ball in hand, looking downfield. Thinking one thing. "Where's Nila?" Nila Kasitati, his 6-foot-4, 247-pound tight end, was rolling with him. With two defenders closing in, Carter threw, and Kasitati caught a 20-yard pass that converted a fourth down, helping Euless Trinity run out the clock in a 28-24 victory in the 5A Division I semifinals against Round Rock Stony Point.

Steele tops Houston Memorial for spot in 5A title game
San Antonio Express-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nothing had stopped Malcolm Brown this past Saturday, until a flood of memories hit him on Steele's last play. He'd just run over Houston Memorial for three touchdowns and a 44-20 state semifinal victory. In the final seconds, Brown began to cry. Brown said he thought back to eighth grade, watching Steele struggle through its first varsity season in 2006. And to mid-September, wondering how he could lead his team back from a 1-2 record. Now, Brown and the Knights are headed to Cowboys Stadium for the state championship game. More

Taylor, White lead Memorial on diamond, gridiron
Houston Chronicle    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last spring, Wayne Taylor and Boomer White were part of something special. In May and June they helped lead the Memorial Mustangs to baseball heights they had never reached, all the way to the Class 5A Region III finals, just a step from the state tournament. It was something that Taylor, a catcher and pitcher, and White, an outfielder and the team's leadoff hitter, would never forget. Now, they're creating new memories, leading the Memorial football team to the state semifinals for the first time since 1979. More

When the Pearland Oilers play the Euless Trinity Trojans this Saturday night for the Class 5A Division 1 state title at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, most people who follow Texas high school football will view them as a big underdog. Their opponent is a defending state champion who has perhaps the best individual player in the state this year, Brandon Carter. Trinity will be looking to capture a fourth state title in the last six years. The Trojans are 82-6 during that span. They have never failed to make the playoffs under their current head coach, Steve Lineweaver. It will be a tall order, indeed, for the Oilers; even impossible, perhaps. More

Carroll seeks to return to playoffs
Corpus Christi Caller-Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Missing the playoffs isn't an option for Carroll this season. Especially after last season, as a young Tigers girls basketball team didn't qualify for the postseason for just the second time in 17 seasons. Carroll has all but two players back from that 14-19 team, who are determined to help the Tigers return to their winning ways this season. More

Ozen's first female boys basketball coach leads sophomore team
Beaumont Enterprise    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pointing to the left wing and then to the right, Andi Jackson dribbled the basketball at the top of the key and showed Aaron Tompkins how to guide his teammates through the offense. Tompkins heeded the direction, something he might not have done three months ago. Jackson coaches the sophomore boys basketball team at Ozen. But there's a difference between Jackson and the other Ozen boys basketball coaches. Jackson is a woman and the first female to coach boys hoops at Ozen and in Beaumont ISD. More
