Yoe basketball about ready to get season rolling

The Yoe basketball team officially wrapped up scrimmages on Monday and is now set to open the regular season. Cameron did have success in their opening dual scrimmage, outscoring both Lago Vista (25-19) and Taylor (36-25) in 12 minute live sessions.

Cameron will open the regular season by hosting CTCS from Yoe Gym on Tuesday. Cameron will also host Holland a week later on the 28th before traveling over to Salado for their opening tournament.


Westbrook set to return to Jaguars active roster soon

After having to sit out the first 10 weeks of the regular season due to an abdomen injury, former Yoemen and Jacksonville Jaguar Dede Westbrook is finally set to return to the starting lineup and get his first action in a regular season game.


Westbrook had the led the NFL in the preseason with 298 receiving yards, but was injured shortly before the season opener and placed on injured reserved. It’s a good time for Westbrook to return, as Allen Hurns, another receiver on the team, is expected to miss at least one week with an ankle injury.


Jacksonville (6-3) will travel to the winless Browns (0-9) for a noon kickoff on Sunday.
