Week 3 Football Outlook










China Spring (2-0) Vs. Cameron Yoe (2-0)

This will be one of the top matchups in the state for week three.  China Spring has been extremely dominant in their first two games.  The Cougars were leading Lorena in the third, 49-0 and also had a 55-0 lead on Huntsville late.  All in all, this could be one of the better teams Cameron has played in the last 10 years.  I had felt China Spring was the top team Cameron played in 2015 and this year’s Cougar squad appears to be improved and should be a contender to win a regional title and compete for a state championship.  The Yoemen will need...

History of Yoe Football

Following their close loss to Daingerfield in 2010, I should remind you of the spring of 2011. It was the greatest spring ever at Yoe High. It started with the girls basketball team. They won three straight playoff games before falling in the regional finals. The boys team won a couple of games before falling in the regional semifinals.


That brought on track. The girls took home the state championship for Coach Linda Richter after so many district and regional victories. On the same day, the boys took home the third place plaque. The girls had a good playoff run in softball, but the Yoe baseball team matched the girls track victory by winning in their first trip to the state tourney. They were coached by present coach John Broussard.



Yoemen score 42 unanswered to get by Gatesville

A lot of times, a game is a tale of two halves.  We got exactly that on Friday night from McKamie Stadium in Gatesville, as a dog fight through the first half of play ended up being a 69-31 victory for Cameron when it was all said and done.  


Throughout the first half of play, both teams traded shots as the lead went back and forth a total of seven different times.  While Gatesville was able to put up more traditional drives, the Yoemen had big strikes. That was highlighted by Sicory Smith's 98-yard touchdown return just before the half ended to give the Yoemen the 27-24 lead.  



Yoe Freshmen/JV move to 2-0

Week 2 Football Outlook











Cameron Yoe (1-0) Vs. Gatesville (0-1)

Last week’s contest with Bellville went about as well as you could have expected.  It was truly one of the most impressive season openers I have personally seen when you take into account the ranking of Bellville and the fact that the game was on the road.  Defensively, Cameron held what is supposed to be a strong slot-t ground attack to under 150 yards while the offense struck on multiple big plays to put the game out of reach by halftime.  The huge matchup with...

Traditionally tough Gatesville next up for the Yoemen















After picking up an impressive week one win over a top ten 4A division II Bellville squad, the Yoemen will now have to deal with another type of challenge.  Unlike Bellville, Gatesville will not be ranked in any poll that you look at.  However, there has been many years in the past where that was the case, but it was the Hornets that ended up surprising the Yoemen.  


In 19 contests, Cameron has an 8-11 all-time record versus Gatesville.  


“I coached at Gatesville a couple of years and I really think Cameron kids underestimate them a little bit,” said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  “When you watch...

Lady Yoe wrap up non-district play














Last week, the Lady Yoe varsity volleyball team competed in their final tournament of the year at Robinson.  The ladies went 1-5 throughout their two days of play.   


Cameron opened up bracket play on Thursday, losing all three matches to Waco Reicher (16-25, 19-25), Connally (25-23, 13-25, 12-25) and Jewett Leon (15-25, 11-25).  


Savannah Kruse led the Lady Yoe in attacking with 17 kills in the three matches.  Kruse also had 14 assists, 15 digs and 4 aces on the day.  



Associated Press Poll has Yoemen ranked number two

After picking up a big win over state-ranked Bellville last week, the Yoemen moved up one spot in the AP rankings to number two.  The Yoemen were behind Mineola, but the Yellowjackets fell to Van in week one. 



Yoemen take down #7 Bellville, 33-10

The Cameron Yoemen opened the 2016 season on Friday night by defeating the highly touted Bellville Brahmas, 33-10.  The Brahmas, which are ranked inside the top ten of multiple 4A division two polls, only managed one touchdown off of the stingy Yoe defense.  Meanwhile, the Yoe offense was proficient, scoring three touchdowns in the first half while taking a commanding 20-3 lead into the locker room at the half.  Bellville managed to get the game to as close as 26-10 in the third quarter, but the Yoemen quickly dashed any hopes of a comeback after a Sicory Smith 72-yard pass from quarterback Zack Andress early on in the fourth quarter. 



Yoemen begin 2016 season with top 10 Bellville














Once the non-district schedule was released for the Yoemen, everyone in Cameron knew there were going to be some very tough challenges in the early going.  That first challenge begins this Friday night at the "Pasture of Pain" in Bellville as the Yoemen kick off the 2016 season.  Bellville, coming off a state quarterfinal appearance a year ago, enters this season ranked inside the top 10 of most major 4A DII polls across the state.  "Bellville is a lot like Cameron," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.
