Hunting, fishing abounds

By Brett Voss.
 
While hunting gets all the attention during the fall in Texas, it’s prime time to whet a lure in the Lone Star lakes and waterways. Fittingly, the 29th season of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Toyota ShareLunker program will begin October 1. Anyone legally catching a 13-pound or bigger largemouth bass from Texas waters, public or private, between October 1 and April 30 may submit the fish to the Toyota ShareLunker program. Fish will be picked up by TPWD personnel within 12 hours.

Never Say Die

By Brett Voss.
 
After two weeks of the high school football season, one thing stands certain. The Meridian Yellowjackets have to be one of the most competitive and exciting winless teams in the state. Despite a furious second half rally, the Jacket defense could not keep Riesel out of the endzone as the Indians dealt Meridian a hard-fought 41-25 lost in the home opener last Friday at Jacket Stadium.

Cubs hand Caniford first win in Clifton

By Brett Voss.
 
What a difference a week can make. Coming off a disappointing season-opening loss, the Clifton Cubs traveled to Rosebud-Lott to play some Texas high school football. That fact became obvious from the moment they left the threshold of their giant Mama Bear tunnel, as Clifton rolled to an impressive 51-0 victory over the Rosebud-Lott Cougars on the road last Friday night. And in the process, the Cubs handed new head coach Chuck Caniford his first victory at Clifton.

So Close, So Far

By Brett Voss.

Despite an inspired second half comeback, the Meridian Yellowjackets came up short in new head coach Chris Roberts’ debut as Itasca rallied for a 27-26 victory last Friday night to snap a 15-game losing streak. Freshman quarterback John Anderson ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as came from behind in the second half only to watch the Wampus Cats score the game-winning touchdown and two-point conversion with five minutes left in the game.

New Beginnings

By Brett Voss.
 
Ready or not, it all starts now. After playing their final scrimmage before the start of the 2014 Texas high school football regular season begins, the Meridian Yellowjackets and first-year head coach Chris Roberts had one more week of practice to get ready. And following a controlled and live action scrimmage against Class 3A, Division II Rio Vista at Jacket Stadium last Thursday, Roberts was glad they had another week to work on things.
