RCC wins opening Week of "Sack Zach"

The first week of high school football is in the books, which means we have a winner of the “Sack Zach” contest. It’s RCC who picked 9 of 10 games correctly (missing Burkburnett-Sweetwater game). RCC actually tied with football 12 (missed the Stamford-Munday game). But RCC won the tiebreaker, guessing 46 points in the Munday…

District 9-A predictions

One day to go until the high school football season opens, and there are one district’s predictions to make. 9-A holds a special place in my heart. Maybe because it always produces a great team that makes a run at the state title. And maybe because all of the teams in the district are from…

More "Sack Zach" news and 5-2A predictions

Before I examine 5-2A, I promised an update on the “Sack Zach” pick-em competition we’re doing this year. Here’s the deal. Each week, you’ll pick the winner of 10 games going on in the area. The person/people who get the most winners, gets a T-shirt each week. And they’re pretty cool. Saw them today —…

5-4A predictions

Alright, here we go. The season kicks off in only four days, so it is the perfect time to look at my district previews. Full disclosure: This is how I voted in our TRN football preview section that comes out Wednesday. By the way, if you enjoy reading about area high school football, I strongly…

Can you sack Zach???

No, not actually sack me. That would hurt. I’m not very elusive anyway, and since I’ve had three knee surguries from sports-related injuries, I’d rather avoid any physical contact. I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up on a pick-em high school football contest we’re putting on called “Sack Zach.” I’ll have more concrete details…

Three weeks to watch for

It’s hard to believe the season is less than a week away. Once it starts, it seems like it can go by pretty fast. Looking at the 2009 master schedule, there are three weeks where the matchups look even more tantalizing than the others. Those are the weeks where I wish we had another couple…

Holliday, Seymour crack AP Top 10 Poll

Congrats to Holliday and Seymour, who both made the Preseason AP Top 10 released today. The Eagles tied with last year’s 2A state champ Muleshoe for 7th in the 2A poll. Seymour was No. 8 in the Class A poll. Graham also received a couple 3A votes.

Buttermilk — how can anybody drink this crap?

I don’t drink buttermilk. Never have. Never will. I can’t understand why anyone would drink buttermilk. Never have. Never will. But my wife loves it. That should not come as a surprise to anyone who knows us. Jenee’ Gholson and I are complete opposites. She’s Beethoven. I’m the Beatles. She’s Republican. I’m Democrat. She’s outdoors.…

This is pretty cool

I promised a blog every day until the season kicks off Thursday night. We’re in the single digits now, by the way. I got pretty busy working on things for the preview section (which comes out next Wednesday by the way and will be pretty cool), so I did not post this until after midnight.…
