Yoemen end regular season with big win over Troy

In Cameron's final regular season game, the ultimate goal was to win and secure at worst the number three seed in the playoffs out of district 10-3A.  

 

All of that was accomplished and more as the Yoemen used 36 points in the second half to pull away from the Troy Trojans, 56-20.  

 

The game had it's ups and downs, but the Yoemen managed to grind through all of it, putting up over 500 yards of total offense on the night.  

 

"That is the thing about our kids," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  "Something bad might happen, but I felt like our kids hung through the adversity tonight and played hard.  I thought they played hard all night long.  We had a lot of different kids in there and they did a great job.  I was very proud of the way we responded to adversity."

Week 10 Football Outlook

Cameron Yoe (7-2/4-1) Vs. Troy (4-4/2-2)

After the loss to Rockdale, it was very important for the Yoemen to respond.  The 63-0 win over Academy this past week went about as well as you could have expected, as the Yoemen were dominant in every phase of the game.  This week’s contest versus Troy is even more important.  Cameron has a bye the last week of the regular season, so this is the final tune-up for the playoffs.  Since 2010, the Yoemen have been very dominant in this last district game, with wins over Troy in 2010 (48-14), Troy in 2011 (38-7), Florence in 2012 (56-0), Florence in 2013 (77-0), Academy in 2014 (47-7) and Academy in 2015 (49-14).  Cameron has traditionally given Troy problems and will have a big advantage in the speed category.  At the end of the day, another strong, well executed performance is what all Yoe fans should look for this week. 

Josh’s Pick: Cameron Yoe by 28+.

Yoemen aim to close regular season on a high note

 

If you look back over the past six football seasons, you will notice a very consistent theme - Cameron has always closed out the regular season on a high note. 

 

Since 2010, the Yoemen have a scoring advantage of 315 to 42 in these final games.  On Friday night in Troy, Coach Tommy Brashear and the Yoemen will look to continue a trend that has proven to be a good omen before the start of the playoffs. 

 

“I think you definitely want to finish the regular season on a high note,” said Brashear.  “For us, the win is the most important thing, but you want to go into that last game looking sharp like I felt like we did the other night versus Academy.  That's what we want to look like in this game with Troy.”

 

Troy is once again the mix for a playoff spot.  The Trojans sit at 4-4 on the season and are 2-2 in 10-3A play.

Lady Yoe close out season

On Tuesday, the Lady Yoe volleyball team closed out the season by hosting the Franklin Lady Lions from Yoe Gym.   Cameron had an up and down season, which included most of district action.  Entering play on Tuesday evening, Cameron sat at 2-11 in 20-3A, with the sole two wins coming over Hearne, which was winless at 0-13. 

 

In addition to volleyball, the Cameron Junior High girls program hosted their Dig Pink bake sale.  All proceeds from Dig Pink go directly to breast cancer research.

 

In the match, Franklin overwhelmed Cameron much of the night in a 25-16, 25-12 and 25-19 loss.  Franklin has been the most consistent team in district action all year, going 12-1 up to this point while sitting all alone at the top of the district.

Westbrook puts up more impressive numbers

Dede Westbrook continued his incredible streak of offensive performances this past week at Texas Tech.  The senior caught another nine passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns versus the Red Raiders to improve Oklahoma to 5-2 on the season.

 

Westbrook had been hampered by a muscle injury in the early portion of the season, but the speedy receiver has accumulated 776 yards and 10 touchdowns in Oklahoma’s last four wins over TCU, Texas, Kansas State and Texas Tech. 

 

Westbrook scored three touchdowns and set a school record with 232 receiving yards versus Texas. 

 

Westbrook’s 930 total receiving yards has propelled him to fifth in the nation for all FBS receivers.  The leader, Trent Taylor of Louisiana Tech, has 1,143 yards.  The senior’s 10 touchdown catches is good enough for a tie for second in the country. 

 

Oklahoma’s remaining schedule:

Yoemen respond with resounding win over Academy

 

For a lot of teams, there is that time in the season when the light switch turns on.  Cameron, which was coming off of a tough 80-54 loss to arch rival Rockdale just a week ago, was in a position where a response was needed.  

 

On senior night from Yoe Field, Cameron (7-2/3-1) lit up just about every light possible in a crushing 63-0 victory over the Academy Bumblebees (4-4/1-3).    

"We had a good week of practice," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  "Our kids tend to usually respond well.  I thought we executed well on offense, defense and special teams.  We really focused hard on doing that.  We got beat in all three phases of the game last week, so we talked about taking pride in whatever you do.  We say our program is based on three things: class, integrity and total effort.  I felt like we played like that tonight."

Lady Yoe pick up win in final stretch of season

Lady Yoe pick up win in final stretch of season

 

The 2016 Lady Yoe Volleyball season has been a learning experience under first year head coach Kamol Nohe.  District records are not exactly where the team would like them to be, but continuous improvement has been a key point all season.

 

The ladies had picked up their lone win of the district season in Hearne last month. After Friday’s tough loss to rival Rockdale, the Lady Yoe built some more confidence with a 3-0 sweep of Hearne on Tuesday. 

 

Rockdale

In Friday’s road match at Rockdale, the Lady Yoe battled to take a set, but ended up falling three sets to one: 19-25, 22-25, 25-15, 17-25. 

 

Cameron’s Savannah Kruse had one of her best matches of the year, getting across 17 kills to go along with 17 assists.  The senior also had 11 digs and one block on the night.

Yoemen aim to rebound with Academy in home finale

After coming off one of the most unpredictable losses of the year last week to Rockdale, the Yoemen will return home on Friday in hopes of rebounding against the Academy Bumblebees.  It will also be the home finale for Cameron and the last game on Yoe Field for the class of 2017.  

 

Throughout the non-district schedule, it appeared that Academy was going to have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs out of one of the toughest districts in the state.  However, since their district opening win over Jarrell (29-22), the Bees have struggled with Rockdale (56-13) and Troy (31-20) to fall to 1-2 in 10-3A play.

 

In non-district action Academy was 3-1 with wins over Rogers (34-0), Whitney (29-20) and Goldthwaite (21-14) and one weather shortened loss to Comanche (19-14).

Hoffmann donates new victory bell

This history of the Battle of the Bell dates all the way back to 1954.  At that time, Sandow & Southern Railroad Co. donated the first bronzed prize to be awarded to the winner of the annual Cameron and Rockdale football game.  That bell lasted all the way up until 2001 when it was officially retired. Shortly thereafter, thanks to a $2,500 donation by the late Catherine Thomas, a C.H. Yoe High graduate, a brand new bell was made available.

 

The second bell had run its course and the booster clubs from both Cameron and Rockdale were in talks about purchasing a new one.  Those talks quickly ended when AJ Hommann, a member of the Cameron community for 23 years now, decided to donate his own bell.

 

Hoffmann, which is from Mount Pleasant, has worked at Charlotte Pipe in Cameron for over two decades.  During that time, he has built many relationships within the community, which includes Bill and Tommy Harris.

Osorio advances on to regionals for Yoe cross country

The Yoe cross country program has a long-standing tradition of sending runners to the regional and state meets.  That tradition will carry on in 2016.  Jose Osorio, which finished fourth in the district meet on Monday in Cameron, will be representing the Yoemen at the regional meet at Sam Houston State on October 29. 

 

Osorio, which finished with a time of 18:08.5, was in fifth heading down the final stretch towards the finish line before making a late push to get into the top four. There were a total of 40 varsity runners. 

 

“It wasn’t a great for us team wise, but Jose Osorio ran real good,” said Yoemen head coach Dale Keen.  “What I liked about his performance more than anything is he could have been satisfied with fifth, but he ran hard and finished fourth.”
