They have rallied around a newfound belief in each other to become a respectable squad. Senior Keosha Eddington leads the way as she has slowly grown into a team leader on the court.

A classic Calvert comeback

By Michael Cotton

The Calvert Trojans have come roaring from the gate to start the 2016 football season. They made quick work of two TAPPS State Champions in the first two weeks of the season using a big play offense and a smash mouth defense that has forced 7 turnovers in the first two games. Then had the amazing comeback win 62-60 over #2 ranked Division I, Borden County. They lack size but their ferocity and speed on defense allows them to make up for that deficiency.

Continuing the winnng streak

By Michael Cotton

After coming up with victories in their last two games the Hearne Eagles are feeling good about themselves. They have gotten the monkey off their back and then some. Now they are looking to extend their winning streak to 3 games when they face the Rogers Eagles this Friday. Rogers has struggled out of the gate in 2016 losing their first three games of the season and not playing very impressively in the process. Their offense has been their worst enemy as they have scored only 14 points in the three games. Youth and inexperience have proven costly to Rogers.

Eagles snap losing streak with win over Trinity

By Michael Cotton

 

If you are a fan of the Hearne Eagles then you know by now that they have put that long losing streak behind them. With a victory under their belts they set their sights on starting a winning streak with this weeks scheduled game against the Snook Bluejays. Snook enters the game with a 0-2 record after suffering losses to both Normangee and Brazos Christian to start the season. The Bluejays are expected to compete for a district title this year but have not put it together on either side of the ball. With quarterback KJ Macik back along with receivers Michael Conerway and Michael Ramirez, Snook was thought to be primed for an offensive explosion but it has not materialized yet this season.

By Dennis Phillips

 

The Houston Texans (4-0 preseason) made a trade that now appears to make an impact for the Miami Dolphins (2-2 preseason). Former Texan running back Arian Foster will start for the Dolphins opening weekend. Foster in a two-way battle with Jay Ajayi during camp and preseason was in a fight for the position but reports have him as the starter for the fins, winning the battle for the position. The Texans welcome back to practice J.J. Watt this week. Watt returned to practice Monday. Watt underwent back surgery prior to training camp. He has passed his physical and was reinstated to the squad. While the coaching staff is not saying much about Watts return, Head Coach Bill O’Brien did say he thought Watt would start.
